CityPass

Posted July 26, 2019

Here's a deal that we think is a steal for our guests who want to see all the New York sights and museums that they possibly can and not go broke while doing it!

The CityPass provides free entry to over 100 top New York attractions. The Empire State Building (usually $44), Top of the Rock Observation Deck ($41), the 9/11 Museum ($26) and MoMa ($25) will all cost nothing. Tours of Lincoln Center, Greenwich Village by foot, the NYC slavery and underground railroad, and entrance to the Cooper Hewitt museum plus free rides on the hop-on hop-off bus? Nada. Completely free.

Another benefit of the pass is entry via fast track (i.e. shorter lines) at the Guggenheim, American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art and many more.

Discounts at restaurants like Buca di Beppo, John's Pizzeria and Dylan's Candy Bar--and a free pork bun in Chinatown!--are all there for the taking. Add onto that discounts at both Bloomingdale's and Macy's and you can be one happy, thrifty traveler!

A one-day pass costs $134 for an adult/$99 for a child. Two-days will set you back $199 for an adult and $159 for a child. Passes are also available for 3, 4, 5, 7 and 10 day visits. There is no limit on how many attractions you can visit in a day, but you can only visit each attraction once.

This pass definitely isn't for everyone, but can be really cost-effective if you want to hit a bunch of the most popular tourist spots.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
