Visitors to New York should know about a great way to save money and time when they visit some of New York’s most beloved attractions, CityPASS.

For only $79 for an adult and $59 for a child, New York CityPASS allows holders to strut right past the lines for tickets to the following six destinations, at about half the price it would cost if the entrance fees were paid for at each site.

•    The Empire State Building
•    The Metropolitan Museum of Art
•    The American Museum of Natural History
•    The Museum of Modern Art
•    Either the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour or a Circle Line Cruise
•    Either Top of the Rock or the Guggenheim Museum

The CityPASS is valid for nine days from the time the first attraction is visited. You receive with your tickets in-depth information about each site, including hours of operation, location, a map and tips.

Next time you are in New York, consider getting a CityPASS to ease your stay and make it the best visit to the Big Apple that you ever had.


A Glamorous Tour of New York City

Whether you have one day or one month to tour New York City, you’ll never tire of activities.  The city that never sleeps offers something for everyone and is full of exciting shows, restaurants, adventures and more.

Start your trip by making sure that you are well rested during the entire stay.  Check out the Washington Jefferson Hotel owned by Shimmie Horn. Located in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, this hip locale is newly renovated and a luxurious place to stay.  Shimmie Horn has thought of everything, and tourists are guaranteed to have a lovely, elegant stay with the comforts they would enjoy at home.

Well rested and ready to sightsee, it’s time to go to Rockefeller Center.  If you have the time, go for a 70 minute NBC Studio Tour and then look at Radio City Music Hall and 30 Rockefeller Plaza.  If you didn’t get advanced tickets for the Empire State Building, you might decide to skip that sight and take the elevator up to the Top of the Rock instead for a great view.

Enjoy some great shopping, or at least some great store window shopping, on Fifth Avenue.  You’ll see where the fanciest people shop and you’ll admire the elegance of each store front.

Hit the Empire State Building and hope that you can get to the top (or order tickets ahead of time to ensure that you will).  Make sure to take in the Museum of Modern Art as well.

And, of course, no trip to New York is complete without Times Square.  Go to the half price ticket book there to see if you can catch a Broadway Show and have fun looking at the dazzling lights and the glamour of Times Square!
