On July 16, online coupon provider Smart Destinations announced the introduction of six new Summer Family Fun Passes, offering travelers over 30 percent in savings at top attractions in major U.S. cities. The passes provide bargains in popular travel hubs such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego and San Francisco.
Those tourists staying in a Boston hotel while visiting the state of Massachusetts can save 32 percent on tickets to the Museum of Science, the Franklin Park Zoo and the Skywalk Observatory. Pass holders can also receive similar deals on Boston Duck Tours, which takes travellers through the city by land and sea. Through these tours, individuals can view main attractions like the State House and the Bunker Hill monument from the American Revolutionary War.
These summer fun passes allow for cheaper travel in New York City as well, saving tourists on Ellis Island Ferry tickets, among other things. In addition to lower prices at the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty, travelers can use the pass to skip the ticket line at the popular attractions. Tourists interested in history will probably wish to see the Statue of Liberty, a gift to America from France that was dedicated in October of 1886 and made a national monument in 1924. The pass further grants its holders an all-access pass to Madame Tussauds so they can explore the famed wax museum, which opened in New York in 2000.
If tourists wish to explore the west coast, this Smart Destination pass provides a 34 percent discount at the Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum in San Diego, California. The same deal applies at the San Diego Zoo, which has animal exhibits ranging from the Asian Passage to the Lost Forest. Families should consider visiting the Discovery Outpost in the zoo, where children can have an up-close and hands-on experience with animals. Legoland California, a park full of massive Lego displays and rides, also takes a percentage off their ticket prices when visitors bring the new pass.
After travelers have finished searching for San Diego hotels or compiling packing lists, they can explore the local attractions and plan to save with this pass in hand.
