Before You Go Do The Tourist Thing, Ask Yourself Do I Need A CityPASS?

Which one of us hasn’t been on vacation and wished that there was a cheaper way to do all the touristy stuff we came to do, it looks like with CityPASS you can do just that and at an affordable price. The latest place to have its tourism taken to the next level with CityPASS is Hollywood. Hollywood CityPASS packs Tinseltown’s marquee attractions into a pocket-sized ticket booklet that offers dramatic discounts and VIP cachet. An adult 2011 Hollywood CityPASS sells for $59 (a value of $108.90), saving 46 percent off combined admission to the participating attractions. Youth (ages 3-11) booklets retail for $39 (a value of $79), saving travelers 51 percent.


At Hollywood CityPASS attractions, pass holders take the VIP route, skipping most main-entrance ticket lines. That means that CityPASS travelers enjoy a lot more time inside the attractions, as opposed to waiting in the queue. The Hollywood CityPASS lets visitors scour the Hollywood Walk of Fame for remembrances of their favorite entertainers; fit their hands inside the prints left by Hollywood legends outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre; or pop into Madame Tussauds to pose for photos with the likes of Lady Gaga,  Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, or Jane Lynch (aka acerbic cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester from the TV show Glee).

Hollywood CityPASS holders enjoy Red Line Tours’ “Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes” Tour, a guided excursion to famous film locations, classic movie palaces, the iconic Hollywood Sign, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and more; a Starline Movie Stars’ Homes Tour; Madame Tussauds Hollywood; and their choice of either the Kodak Theatre Guided Tour or The Hollywood Museum in the historic Max Factor Building.

Forgot to purchase a book before you left home no problem, ticket booklets also can be purchased  for the same low price at any of the participating attractions. In addition to Hollywood, CityPASS ticket booklets are available for New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto. So the next time you decide you want to take the family on vacation, ask yourself this, Do I have a CityPASS?
