Experience the best of Boston with CityPASS, an easy-to-use ticket booklet that gives you admission to a hand-picked collection of Boston’s most iconic attractions, all at a great savings. Because CityPASS is valid for 9 consecutive days starting with the day of first use, there’s no need to rush—so you can focus on having fun. Plus you’ll skip many ticket lines, giving you time to see and do more in this modern city with colonial roots.
The CityPASS made site seeing so simple. We loved not having to wait in long lines for tickets and the locations on the CityPASS were kids approved. The passes were well worth the investment!
Tasked by my wife to plan a 3-day weekend in Boston, CityPASS was the perfect choice to save us money and see the sights.
So easy. You save so much money. There are even directions to each place in the CityPASS. You can skip some of the lines, not all, but it still saves so much time. I do recommend this for 3-day trips or more since there is just so much to see. Also, this is great for couples as well as families with children
We took a 3-day whirlwind tour of Boston Museums and the aquarium. The Boston CityPASS almost completely eliminated any lines for us, and it was extremely easy to use. I will definitely consider using CityPASS when we travel to other cities.
I spent three days in Boston in mid December with my girlfriend and thankfully, she got us onto a CityPASS. I had no idea they even existed and in hindsight we saved ourselves the equivalent of a whole night's accommodation!
