How It Works
Getting and using Philadelphia CityPASS tickets is easy—you'll love it!
With so much to do in Philly, the CityPASS was an excellent way to both help us save money and decide where to go! There were admission passes in the booklet for attractions we might not have considered otherwise.
We are new to the Philadelphia area and we were anxious to get out and explore some of the sites with our three kids. We came across the CityPASS and decided to take our last two weeks of summer and dedicate it to exploring. This was truly the way to do it! We used every pass and got our money's worth.
The CityPASS was great. It allowed us to do everything we wanted to do. The best part of the pass was the hop off-hop on big bus tour. We used it to go to all of the places we wanted to travel to and then the next day we ended up going back on the bus and just doing the whole city tour.
Definitely worth the price! My 2nd time visiting Philly and both times used CityPASS. SO worth the money and time saved by NOT having to wait in lines at the ticketing counter.
This was our first time in Philadelphia and the CityPASS made it easy to enjoy the sites as well as learn the history. The savings made it even better. Kids loved the aquarium and the zoo. We enjoyed the Big Bus tour. Would do again.
With this economy, it was essential to have bought the City Pass while planning our vacation to Philadelphia. In addition to saving us money, it really offered us the best sites to see during our 5 day stay in Philly and made it easy to program our site-seeing days in advance. No waiting in lines to buy tickets was an added plus!
My husband and I have made it a goal to visit every city that has a CityPASS. Philadelphia was our second (Chicago our first, two years ago). We were there for five days, and visited every attraction in the CityPASS book plus a few more; we saved so much money and we also appreciated not having to wait in line at several of the attractions. We made some great memories in Philadelphia and look forward to our next vacation.
