The Holt County Visitors Committee is the result of the Nebraska Visitors Development Act, which allows a county to collect a lodging tax. The tax revenues are then used to attract visitors to the county and/or construct, expand and improve attractions in the county, thereby helping travel and tourism locally. The Holt County Visitors Committee oversees the use of those tax revenues. They are dedicated members of the communities they live in and want to see Holt County thrive.
