Debi Bower is the founder and creative director of daytrippingroc.com and author of the award-winning book Day Trips Around Rochester, New York.

People often ask me if I get free access to places while exploring. The answer is no unless I’m invited to previews or granted behind-the-scenes access as part of my media role. Generally, I don’t mention my project, Day Trips Around Rochester, NY, because I want the same experience you would have. I create and share content simply because it brings me joy. I would appreciate your support—a cup of coffee or two to help fuel future field trips—if you have found valuable information here that has helped you explore the Rochester area.

    1. Hello David! Reach out to the Wegmans in Newark directly. They keep local passports at the service desk. I’m not certain if they print in large quantities but Wegmans can help! If they do not have enough, they can also connect with the Consumer Affairs department to help you inquire on receiving more. You can also contact Consumer Affairs directly: https://www.wegmans.com/service/contact-us.html
