Think Outside the Box This Holiday Season, and Give a Vacation Instead; Convenient and Compact CityPass Delivers Major City Fun

VICTOR, Idaho--(CCNMatthews - Nov 17, 2005) -

Have someone on your gift list each season that's hard to fit, or just plain hard to please? CityPass®, the visitor program offering the best attractions in North America's most popular destinations, is like wrapping up a city this season -- and CityPass will even do the wrapping.

CityPass combines the best museums and attractions in these lovely get-away cities -- San Francisco, Southern California, Los Angeles/Hollywood, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, and Toronto, in a pocket-sized booklet allowing visitors to breeze past ticket lines. Available online for a substantial discount off box office prices (usually 50%), CityPass makes giving a getaway to a fascinating city simple, affordable and very unique. Slip San Francisco into a stocking for $42, charm someone in Chicago for $49.50, bundle up the best of Boston for just $39, or buy the Big Apple for $53 this season. For about $100 for two adult ticket booklets most cities, CityPass is the biggest value of the year.

CityPass includes admission to each city's best venues -- icon museums and attractions recognized the world over -- Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Empire State Building in New York City, a bay cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Museum of Flight in Seattle, CN Tower in Toronto, and a trip to Disneyland and SeaWorld in Southern California -- to name a few. Valid dates vary by city, but CityPass is valid for a minimum of nine leisurely days to see six attractions, and longer in some. (New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Hollywood are valid all winter, from Dec. 15-March 31, and Boston CityPass is now valid for one year.)

An online ticket option offers a personalized gift card included with your purchase or shipment to arrive to home, office, or hotel for immediate travel fun. Procrastinators take comfort in the FedEx overnight delivery options. Best of all is the price. CityPass is sold at about 50% off box office prices with rates for both adults and youths, making CityPass as easy to give as it is to receive -- and CityPass is the perfect guest room amenity for visiting friends and relatives.
