We’ve been asked frequently where you can pick up passports and have them stamped along the Michigan Road for the popular Indiana Byways Passport Program. A complete list of locations along the Michigan Road follows below.
Please note that the original location in Boone County, Country Market, went out of business. We have selected a new location and it is in the list below.
Another question we’ve heard frequently is what to do if you arrive at a passport location to receive a stamp, but find it closed. Take a selfie of yourself in front of the location, and drive to the next location. There, show them your selfie and ask them to stamp your passport for both locations! We’ve instructed all locations to honor this method.
