State of Nebraska Tourism

Shirley Wichman works for the Nebraska Tourism Commission as the Industry Relations Coordinator. Shirley loves to share her passion for Nebraska with whoever will listen. She and her husband, Willie, both native Nebraskans, enjoy traveling the back roads, visiting with the locals and of course, cheering on Nebraska athletics.

The mission of the Nebraska Tourism Commission is to expand Nebraska’s dynamic and diverse travel industry making it more viable by creating awareness, attracting increased visitors which results in greater tourism revenue and economic gain throughout the state.

One of the programs we are avidly talking about this year is the Nebraska Passport Program.  The purpose of the program is to help travelers discover many of Nebraska’s hidden gems. The program is special because it offers a wide variety of travel adventures, including museums, parks, restaurants, wineries, retail stores and more.
