Buying tickets for each attraction in a popular destination, say New York or Orlando, can quickly turn a budget-minded vacation into a money pit. One option worth exploring: Smart Destination attraction passes. Go City Cards, Go Explorer and Go Select Passes provide admission to more than 400 attractions like SeaWorld, the Statue of Liberty, Universal Studios and the San Diego Zoo, across nine North American destinations including New York, Orlando, Oahu, San Diego, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Boston. Passes can save you up to 55% off regular admission rates and allow you to skip the line at select spots, plus come with comprehensive city guides and bonus discounts for shopping and dining.
- Go Cards offer unlimited admission to dozens of attractions in each destination, as well as savings at area restaurants, store and more. Each comes with a local guidebook.
- Explorer Passes let you pick the attractions that most appeal and can be used over a 30-day period. Explorer Passes allow you to avoid long ticket lines and typically offer savings of up to 35% over the price of separate admissions.
- Go Select Passes are a DIY-ers dream. Build your own pass from the ground up. Add as many attractions as you want, and receive detailed information on each.
