Saving Travel Dollars With Smart Destinations Go City Pass

2011/05/31by Donna Hull

It’s an expensive travel world out there. Gasoline prices are skyrocketing. Airline fees aren’t for the faint of heart. What’s a baby boomer traveler to do? Smart Destinations has the answer — at least when it comes to saving money on admissions to attractions in eleven major cities — the Go City Pass.

Let’s say you purchase thsmart-destinations-city-card-bostone 3-day Go Boston Pass for $109.99 per adult (1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 day passes are available). You’ll receive admission to over 70 top Boston attractions – more than you could ever see in three days. But that’s not all. There’s no standing in line buying tickets to each attraction. The Go Boston Pass card acts as your admission ticket. And VIP entry at many of the attractions lets you skip any lines. A guidebook accompanies the card plus shopping and dining discounts are also provided.

Not traveling to Boston this year? The Go City Pass is also available for Blue Ridge (Asheville, NC area), Chicago, Los Angeles, Maui, Miami, Oahu, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle. What about New York City or Las Vegas? They’re covered under the Explorer Pass.

The folks at Smart Destinations are helping celebrate the last day of My Itchy Travel Feet’s 3 year blogging anniversary with a special giveaway for one of our readers. Would you like to win two adult 3-day Go Cards for the city of your choice, which has a retail value of around $300?

To enter, just post a comment at the end of this post telling us which city you would choose for a Go City Card. Please include your email address for contact purposes. Contest ends on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 11:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time. Winner will be announced as soon as possible. Remember, according to our general contest rules, the winner must be a U.S. resident and respond within 48 hours of receiving the notification email; or we chose another winner.

Disclosure: Smart Destinations is providing the two adult, 3-day Go City Card Passes for one of our lucky readers.

UPDATE: June 7, 2011 at 11:01 p.m: this contest has expired. As soon as the winner acknowledges receipt of my email, I’ll make the announcement.
