Best NYC Multi-Ticket Sites
New York City is one of the most popular places to visit in the world. With its world famous sites, it is no surprise that New York City attracts close to 50 million tourists each year. Finding the best way to see the City’s greatest attractions without emptying your wallet can be challenging. Below are two travel guide sites for multi-ticket purchases that stood out to our judges.
For tourists interested in visiting some of New York City’s must-see attractions on their next trip to the Big Apple, go to the CityPASS website to help you plan. While the site houses travel details for major cities across North America, you can filter the information by choosing New York as your city of interest. On the site you can view and purchase a CityPASS, a booklet containing six of the most desired New York tickets—without wasting time waiting in long lines. Each CityPASS can save you an impressive $63-79 per person and includes one ticket to each of the following world-famous spots (with some options): The Empire State Building, American Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, Top of the Rock or Guggenheim Museum, and Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island or Circle Line Cruises.
To further help you plan and organize your trip, the site includes useful information of each attraction location. For example, directions, recommended methods of transportation, attraction highlights and advice for visitors can all be found on the site. In addition, the site has a video explaining what lies ahead once you have purchase a New York CityPASS.
An extra bonus is that CityPASS has a mobile version of the site to make travelling on the go that much easier. With CityPASS’s mobile site, you can find attraction details, compare prices, read reviews, watch site videos, use maps to get directions, and even purchase a pass, right from your smart phone.
