Tourist Passes allows you to experience an extensive range of the region’s most popular sites and attractions at a discounted rate. Essentially you pay one price for entrance to all the attractions and tours listed. In addition you get a few more perks such as a free guidebook and skipping the lines at some of the major sights (think about the huge lines in the summer).

Why buy a pass before I go on vacation?

For most people, buying a tourist pass is about saving money. You can purchase these passes in your destination but you usually pay full price. Buying them beforehand usually results in some kind of savings (on top of what you would save on paying for each attraction seperatly).

Top Cities

New York: The Big Apple is one of the top vacation destinations in the world, attracting more than 47 million people each year. Central Park in the heart of Manhattan is the most-visited city park in the country. Shop and browse along Madison and Fifth Avenues, and enjoy some of the world’s best restaurants while checking out landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and the lights of Times Square.

Chicago: A vacation to the Windy City has something for everyone. The Field Museum’s famous T. rex, Sue, is just one of the attractions at the city’s Museum Campus, which also includes the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium. It’s home to the world-renowned Joffrey Ballet, as well as baseball rivals the White Sox and the Cubs. And it would be a crime to visit Chicago without sampling the city’s famous deep-dish pizza or loaded hotdogs.

Las Vegas: It’s easy to lose track of time—and your budget!—in the lights and sights of Las Vegas’s many casinos. But Sin City offers much, much more than just an army of slot machines. There are dazzling floor shows and glamorous clubs if you’re looking for a swanky night out. Daytime and family-friendly adventures include theme parks, roller coasters, mini golf, and go-karts.

Hawaii, Oahu and Maui: With miles of pristine sand beaches, internationally famous surfing hot spots, and an average winter low temperature around 80°F, it’s no wonder that Hawaii is one of the world’s most popular year-round vacation spots. More than 7 million visitors arrive each year, and most of them stay in Honolulu and the island of Maui to the southeast, where you’ll find hiking, snorkeling, whale watching, and black-sand volcanic beaches.

Los Angeles: The destination of many would-be stars, Los Angeles is a mix of celebrities, old Hollywood glamour, and the influence of Mexican American culture. Hobnob with the well heeled on Rodeo Drive, walk in the footsteps of your favorite entertainment icons on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, enjoy some of the world’s most iconic works of art at The Getty, and much more.

San Francisco: Home to many American icons, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the familiar bell of the cable cars to steep, zigzagging streets lined with Victorian houses. Enjoy fresh and inventive cuisine from every culture, watch the sea lions lounge at Fisherman’s Wharf, or plot your escape from Alcatraz. Enjoy European-style cafes and restaurants in North Beach, also the center of the city’s Beat-era literary scene.

San Diego: The coastal landscape attracts surfers, nature lovers, snowbirds, and visitors of every interest. Balboa Park is home to 15 museums—fine arts, photographs, natural history, and more—as well as the famous San Diego Zoo. The city welcomes more than 30 million people each year, many of whom also head outside of the city to one of the many nearby theme parks SeaWorld, and Legoland.

Boston: Beantown, The Hub, The Land of the Bean and the Cod… Boston goes by many nicknames but the one that sports-crazy locals are most proud of is Title Town—a nod to recent championship victories by the Sox, Bruins, Celtics, and Patriots. Boston balances its Revolutionary roots and Irish American heritage with the youthful vibe provided by 250,000 college students who arrive each September.

Seattle: Pack a windbreaker and dismiss the drizzle in the Pacific Northwest’s “Emerald City.”  Visitors can expect great coffee on every corner, great cuisine made with farm-fresh ingredients, harbor cruises, and world-famous attractions like the Space Needle and monorail.  There are also plenty of museums, from Asian art to the history of flight to Nordic heritage—even a museum dedicated to hydroplanes and raceboats.
