Get Your Passport and Be a Tourist in Lincoln. Visit Licorice International. Win Prizes.

The Telephone Museum is one of the places to visit
What do the Lincoln Children's Zoo, Wunder Rosa Winery, and Licorice International have in common? They're all places Lincolnites can visit as part of Discover Lincoln this summer. The Lincoln Convention and Visitor's Bureau is encouraging Lincolnites to "be a tourist in your own hometown" by visiting 25 places of interest. Have you ever learned about the history of quilts at the International Quilt Study Center, tasted ethnic food at Celebrate Lincoln, relaxed under the stars while listening to the Lincoln Munipal Band play at Antelope Park, or--most importantly--sampled great licorice and other treats from around the world at Licorice International? This summer, you have the opportunity to do just that.

To "be a tourist," simply stop by Licorice International at 803 Q Street in Lincoln and pick up your "passport" brochure.  (Be sure to get a stamp from Licorice International while there.) Then gather as many stamps as you can from the 25 sites on the brochure. Drop off or mail your passport to the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau by August 15 to qualify for a prize drawing. There's also a great photo contest you can enter.
