Sightseeing in New York City Made Simple with New York Pass

On our recent trip to New York City, my family wanted to see everything and do everything. This could have been a disaster, considering our normal travel style is generally laid back and easy going. We don’t tend to be big planners and like to find fun along the way. Quite honestly, I think our style could be confused by strangers as chaotic instead of relaxed.

Knowing we would be in the city during a busy time, I took a little time to research the different options available to go to the Top of the Rock, visit the Empire State Building, enjoy the Metropolitan Museum of Art and tour Yankees Stadium. Through a little research, I was excited to find the New York Pass.

Savings on Admission Fees
The New York Pass was a great fit for my family. We could see all of the attractions on our list, plus several others, for one flat price which was less than paying for each entrance fee individually.

Guidebook to help you “Do it All”
We were able to do and see even more with the pass because of the fabulous guidebook in which someone else had already done the work of planning each day. This guidebook with maps came with our New York Passes and had complete descriptions of each attraction as well as the itinerary to fit them all in.

No Waiting in Line with Fast Track Entry
There were four of us traveling during our New York City adventure. One of the biggest bonuses for me was that because we used our New York Passes, we didn’t have to stand in line at many of the attractions along the way. This benefit in itself was worth purchasing the pass because waiting in line can be stressful, particularly with kids.

We stayed at New York Hilton Midtown and it was the perfect location for us to rest before setting out on our daily adventures.
