Get the Digital Passport

The 2022 digital passport will begin on Monday, May 30, and last through September 5. This year we have a full 20 stops connected! They range from tours through anthracite coal mines to antique carousels to live vintage plane demonstrations. There is truly something for all interests!

Connect with at least 3 of the 20 participating sites for a free commemorative patch. If you participate in at least 12, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of several grand prize bundles loaded with regional gift cards and local goodies. When you’ve reached 16 visits you’ll receive a double entry! There is no charge for the passport, and you use your mobile device to check-in at all the stops. Please note that standard admission fees may apply.

Plan for a unique experience at each of the 20 participating locations. Most of the stops are in Columbia and Montour counties, but the Eagles Mere Museums are in Sullivan County, and the Ashland Pioneer Tunnel is in Schuylkill. All are within an hour’s drive of our inn.
