LINCOLN, NE (January 13, 2016)-- The Official 2016 Spring/Summer Nebraska Travel Guide is now available to those looking to explore the state. For the first time, the Nebraska Tourism Commission is producing two travel guides, instead of one, separating them out into Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter.
“This change will allow travelers to see what’s going on in the state at the specific time they plan to visit,” said Nebraska Tourism Commission Executive Director, Kathy McKillip.
The Spring/Summer guide is filled with beautiful photography of the state, great information and is endorsed by Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts. “On behalf of the people of Nebraska, I encourage you to explore our growing state, and we hope you enjoy everything it has to offer,” said Ricketts in a welcome letter at the front of the publication.
The guide is a helpful tool for travel planning and also provides exposure to Nebraska’s amenities and attractions throughout the state. Inside travelers will find features on the state’s nationally acclaimed golf courses, western heritage, historical sites, music and sports venues, outdoor adventures and art museums/galleries. It is also filled with a variety of listings for things to see and do, restaurants and places to stay, like campgrounds, bed and breakfasts and hotels. The calendar section of the travel guide gives a highlight list of events going on across the state. “Even though trends show the growing popularity of mobile apps and online searches, the physical printed guide still is very popular and in many cases an educational piece as well,” said McKillip.
