If you read my post about why you should visit tourist sites for your first time visiting a new city, you’ll know that some of the sites come with an entrance fee. Being a tourist in a big metropolitan city like NYC can be pricey and paying to get in can eat a chunk into your trip allowance. Enter the NYC CityPASS! This one pass will save big money and get you into over 9 of the most popular sights to see!
What Is The NYC Sightseeing Pass by CityPASS?
The CityPASS allows you to pay one price (often saving you over $80) and gives you the options of New York’s top attractions. You aren’t rushed to use them in a day or two- they give a nine day grace period to see the sights, giving you the leisure to see one per day or even skip days between visits. What’s even better is that you can save the pass to your smart phone or digital device and stop fumbling around wondering where you put those tickets.
Where Can You Use CityPASS?
New York City is one of the most visited cities in the world and has hundreds, if not thousands of things to do, see, and eat. But with limited time on your vacation, you gotta try to not only save time but also save money while crossing these NYC tourist sights off your list.
That’s where the NYC Sightseeing pass called CityPass comes in to help you save money and time by paying one flat fee and stacking your tourist attractions up within that time frame allotted on your pass.
There are 9 attractions to choose from:
- Empire State Building (Reg. Adult Price $64)
- American Museum of Natural History (Reg. Adult Price $28)
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art (“The Met” – Reg. Adult Price $32)
- Top of the Rock Observation Deck (Reg. Adult Price $42) OR Guggenheim Museum (Reg. Adult Price $25)
- Ferry Access to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island (Reg. Adult Price $23) OR Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises (Reg. Adult Price $44)
- 9/11 Memorial & Museum (Reg. Adult Price $26) OR Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum (Reg. Adult Price $33)
Final Thoughts On CityPASS
Adding up the pricier options on the list tops out over $200. Tickets for CityPASS are $136 for adults and $112 for children (ages 6-17), saving about $100 from regular admission prices! Use that to go out to a nice dinner or get tickets to a (cheaper) Broadway show.
There are so many interesting places to see in New York City. We love getting to see the iconic structures we have always come to associate with a city, like The Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty. Don’t choose one or the other…see them all with CityPASS!
