CityPASS is the brainchild of co-founders Mike Gallagher and Mike Morey whose backgrounds in destination marketing and tourism industry research armed them with insight into how travelers want to travel: without a lot of fuss and at a significant savings.

Launched in 1997 in Seattle and San Francisco, CityPASS bundles prepaid admission to each city’s top attractions (based on annual attendance) into one easy-to-use ticket booklet whose cost is up to half off what it would cost to purchase the same tickets separately. One of its big pro’s is because each city’s pass is limited to five or six destinations, visitors can spend ample time at each instead of being rushed like they could be on a tour and can set their own schedule.

It’s described as “perfect for the weekend.”

CityPASS is now available in 11 North American destinations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, Houston, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto.
