Our first experience with City Pass was in Atlanta, which is my hometown. I hadn’t visited a lot of the places covered by the pass, so it was a cool experience even for me. The pass gave us a roadmap of what to do when Andre’s kids and friends came into town while we were still long-distance dating.
Each location has different options to choose from and you can check out the different areas where the pass is available HERE. Overall, these will be the city hot spots and come at a discounted price when purchased with the pass since the pass pays for the attractions in bulk. Make sure you have enough time to complete everything on the pass to get your money’s worth.
One perk of using the pass is moving up in the lines. Typically, the locations will have a special area for City Pass holders to enter the attraction, which is much faster than the main entrance. If you don’t like waiting, this pass is for you, and you can even pre-order the pass before your trip!
In Atlanta, we were able to visit the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coke, CNN Studio Tours, Zoo Atlanta, and the College Football Hall of Fame. Since Andre’s son was in college playing football at that time, that was a special treat. Plus, almost all of those attractions were in one location, so it made the commuting portion easy.
Our New York trip was the next opportunity to use the pass, and this is by far the best one so far. We were able to see the Empire State Building, Natural History Museum, the Met, Top of the Rock, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the 9/11 Memorial. We did this pass in a day, which I would not recommend, but another example of the perks within the pass is the daytime and nighttime viewing of the Empire State Building at no extra cost.
As you can see, you won’t be disappointed with this deal, and will regularly save around 40% of the cost; here are some of the stops we have been to with CITYPASS so far…
