This is my first time using the CityPASS but I already love it. CityPASS is the Holy Grail for tourists for countless reasons. First of all, you save money on attractions you WOULD G TO ANYWAY. All in all it was the best money I have ever spent on traveling.
We used CityPASS Chicago recently and it was a not only a vacation saver but a marriage saver. My husband and I would typically argue about which way to go and what to do next. The CityPASS was easy to use and offered detailed information as well as discounts.
My family came to visit us from Colombia. It was their first time in the states and I wanted to make sure their first vacation was more than what they expected it to be. When I came across the Chicago CityPASS online I knew it was just what I needed to make their trip memorable. They call them the "little magic booklets," because it had everything they wanted to see in Chicago.
This pass is a great way to see all the best sites in Chicago. I had planned to visit all these places anyway, so why not get a discount for it! Also, it was great to walk past all the huge lines and get in more quickly.
I feel like a VIP when I use this CityPASS in Chicago!
We have purchased CityPASS now for three cities, Southern California, New York and now Chicago. We have a family of 5 and this makes planning so easy and affordable!! Not to mention not standing in line for tickets!!!
The CityPASS was the perfect way to plan our stay in Chicago. I was able to show my daughter my favorite places in Chicago, and a few others as well. The CityPASS provided a better price, and skipping to the front of the line was like icing on the cake!.
After doing much research about CityPASS and other group admission passes of the like, I knew I had to get the CityPASS. Chicago CityPASS gets you into 5 of the top sightseeing places - with an upgraded admission!
