Area Attractions: GoCity Card

The week between Christmas and New Years is often one of the busiest travel weeks for families who want to take advantage of the school holiday to get away. While rates for airlines, hotels, rental cars, gas, and more peak at this time of year, the good news is that the multi-attraction pass known as the Go City Card does not raise its prices for the holidays, and therefore offers families a rare way to save money on sightseeing at this time of year.

The Go City Card is the perfect option for those who plan to visit multiple attractions in a destination (see below for cities which feature a Go City Card) and can benefit from bundling the purchase of entry to each one and save both money and time. Depending upon the destination and Go City Card purchased, there can be a savings of up to 55%. Additionally, you can make a last-minute decision to purchase a pass, which is delivered to your smart phone in an instant, and the patented technology enables you to gain access to attractions throughout a city just by scanning the QR code on your smartphone. At select attractions, you can even bypass long ticket lines.
