The Platte County Chamber calls for a road trip

Platte County – The official tourism organization for Platte County has launched “A Road Trip Adventure Through Wyoming’s Platte County,” a new mobile scavenger hunt that encourages people to visit the many destinations across Platte County.

The passport is a free program that any local resident or visitor can sign up for, showing participants every exciting and unique experience Platte County has to offer in an easy, mobile-friendly way. Highlighting fun and photogenic stops like the 3D Archery Range at Glendo State Park, Boothill Cemetery in Hartville, Register Cliffs in Guernsey, the Platte County Fairgrounds in Wheatland, and the Centennial Windmill in Chugwater and more, the pass encourages users to explore the entirety of Platte County.

Chairman of the Platte County Lodging Tax Board, Ruth Moyte shared her excitement about the new program. “We are excited to offer this program to visitors, residents and our small businesses.  It showcases tourism and encourages visitors and residents to explore the area and partake of the unique businesses throughout our communities in Platte County.  It’s so easy to get involved, and it is free to all the businesses throughout the county.  We hope that everyone will take advantage of the program. For our visitors and residents, it provides a fun way to explore some of the great experiences that are offered throughout the county and win cool prizes. It’s a win for everyone.”

Conversations around “A Road Trip Adventure Through Wyoming’s Platte County” began in 2021 and led Platte County to work with well-known travel technology company Bandwango.  Using the Bandwango technology, Platte County began working alongside local businesses to get their details – and discounts! – loaded into the mobile pass. Support these local businesses by stopping in to grab a bite or shop while searching for the Outdoor Locations that can earn you prizes.

Visitors and locals alike can visit a dedicated mobile passport landing page on the WYPlatteCo.com website where you can sign-up for the Platte County Pass by providing your name, email address and mobile phone number. A link is then sent to your mobile phone, which opens the passport and directs you to add the button icon to your home screen, where you can access it at any time. The pass is 100% free, there is never anything to download, and no bulky apps take up space on a user’s phone.

When you’re ready to start earning prizes, simply “check-in” at any Outdoor Location and record your visit to earn credit toward several prizes being offered. Check-in at 6 Outdoor Locations to win a Wyoming's Platte County patch; 12 Outdoor Locations to win the patch and a camping mug; and all 17 Outdoor Locations to win the patch, camping/coffee mug, and a Wyoming's Platte County hooded sweatshirt! Stop by the Platte County Visitor’s Center off I-25 in Wheatland to redeem your prizes.
