About Us

The Western Nebraska Tourism Coalition (WNTC) welcomes you to westnebraska.com! Thanks in part to dedicated members of the WNTC, local businesses and friends of Western Nebraska, tourism across the region has grown exponentially in the last several years.
 
What began as a committee representing the 11 counties of Nebraska’s Panhandle has come to encompass 20 counties, from the Wyoming border to Cherry County and everywhere in between. This cooperative group, representing regional restaurants, outfitters, hotels and more is dedicated to sharing with the world the wide variety of offerings from Nebraska’s westernmost regions. 
 
For anyone who hopes to explore the Nebraska Panhandle, the scenic beauty of the Sandhills, the Wild West, Trails West and Pine Ridge regions, westnebraska.com, in partnership with the WNTC, is your guide. Events, attractions, sites and scenery – we’re here to find and explore it all in order to serve you.  For more information on our members, please see our full listing below.
