Good Deals, Good Gifts: CityPass

Playing tourist? Know someone who's planning to do some lightening sightseeing in: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Hollywood, San Francisco or Chicago? Here's a thoughtful gift: a book of prepaid admissions in your city of choice.

CityPass avoids most main entrance ticket lines, except in unusual cases where the attraction has no separate member desk or where our ticket gains admission to a cruise or viewing tower where a limited capacity of people may enter at one time (like the Empire State Building Observatory high-speed elevator). Many museums and attractions have the CityPass logo in place over a member desk or separate area for immediate admission.

If you really want to save time, buy CityPass online. Then you'll breeze through it all.Click here for the CityPass website.

A CityPass booklet includes admission to various attractions, depending on which city's you buy.
