Byways Passport

Nebraska Travel and Tourism is rolling out a new program for Nebraska Travelers:  The Nebraska Byways Passport Program.  Byways Passport is a great way to get out and explore Nebraska’s scenic byways and take home prizes, to boot.

Recall Ord is located smack dab in the middle of the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway, and our local Passport checkpoints are located at Fort Hartsuff, Happy Jack Chalk Mine and the St. Paul Baseball Hall of Fame.  Stop by the local checkpoints and get your passport stamped.  Simple as that.

While you’re in the area, don’t forget a couple other local gems – Davis Creek Reservoir, Anderson Island and Bussell Park.  A couple of my own favorite byways?  Hwy 136 runs along the river I grew up on, the Republican, and is as hidden a gem as the North Loup.  Hwy 385 meanders through the Wildcat Hills, a slice of Nebraska’s own badlands and an awesome place to catch a sunset.  And if you can make it up to Fort Rob on the Bridges to Buttes, you won’t ever be disappointed.  One of the most underrated places in the nation.

Now get out there and win some loot!
