If you have never visited the "Tourist Traps" of NYC, listed below, this deal might change your mind.
- Empire State Building Observatory
- American Museum of Natural History & Rose Center
- Guggenheim Museum
- The Museum of Modern Art
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Cloisters
- Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises OR Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
You can get a CityPass and all the above places are part of that package. I used CityPass several years ago and had a great time as a tourist in my own city! I think I still have the remaining booklet / stub somewhere at home. You can buy the booklet via their website, or you can also buy the CityPass books when you get to any of the attractions. I purchased mine at the Empire State Building several years ago when we decided to visit some local places.
The pass is valid for 9 days from the first day of use. The current cost for each booklet is for $74 for adults and $54 for kids. If you were to visit all the attractions separately and paid full price, you would end up paying $134 for each adult. On April 1, CityPass prices will go up to reflect changes in 2009 attractions’ prices. The New York CityPass price will become $79 for adults and $59 for children.
If I were to visit any of the other cities for which CityPass has a package (New York, Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Hollywood, Southern California, and Houston) I might think about picking up a CityPass.
