Philadelphia. Where you can celebrate life, liberty, and the pursuit of the city’s best attractions.
Immerse yourself in this city’s incredible history, and remember it also has some of the country’s best attractions. Even better – CityPASS makes your pursuit of them simple, with the best attractions hand-picked and wrapped up in one easy-to-use ticket booklet that saves you time and money, so you can catch plenty of memories.
With so much to do in Philly, the CityPASS was an excellent way to both help us save money and decide where to go! There were admission passes in the booklet for attractions we might not have considered otherwise.
We are new to the Philadelphia area and we were anxious to get out and explore some of the sites with our three kids. We came across the CityPASS and decided to take our last two weeks of summer and dedicate it to exploring. This was truly the way to do it! We used every pass and got our money's worth.
The CityPASS was great. It allowed us to do everything we wanted to do. The best part of the pass was the hop off-hop on big bus tour. We used it to go to all of the places we wanted to travel to and then the next day we ended up going back on the bus and just doing the whole city tour.
Definitely worth the price! My 2nd time visiting Philly and both times used CityPASS. SO worth the money and time saved by NOT having to wait in lines at the ticketing counter.
This was our first time in Philadelphia and the CityPASS made it easy to enjoy the sites as well as learn the history. The savings made it even better. Kids loved the aquarium and the zoo. We enjoyed the Big Bus tour. Would do again.
With this economy, it was essential to have bought the City Pass while planning our vacation to Philadelphia. In addition to saving us money, it really offered us the best sites to see during our 5 day stay in Philly and made it easy to program our site-seeing days in advance. No waiting in lines to buy tickets was an added plus!
My husband and I have made it a goal to visit every city that has a CityPASS. Philadelphia was our second (Chicago our first, two years ago). We were there for five days, and visited every attraction in the CityPASS book plus a few more; we saved so much money and we also appreciated not having to wait in line at several of the attractions. We made some great memories in Philadelphia and look forward to our next vacation.
Getting a Philadelphia CityPASS ticket booklet is simple. No matter how, where or when you buy, you’ll see the same huge savings and get the same price.
When you buy online, choose between receiving a voucher that you can print or having our customer care team lovingly pack and ship booklets to you. Easy as pie.
Vouchers couldn’t be easier to use – just bring your printed voucher to the first attraction you visit, and they’ll exchange it for your CityPASS ticket booklet. Just note that you may run into a line when exchanging your voucher during peak times. And, it’s always a good idea to bring your ID (attractions may ask for it).
If you’d like to have your booklets shipped to you, we ship to the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and UK. We can also ship directly to your hotel in the US and Canada.
You can also buy once you get to the city. It’s simple – just make the purchase at the first attraction you visit. The team there will know just what to do to get you in as quickly as possible. Piece of cake.
A CityPASS booklet you buy today expires February 28, 2017. A voucher you buy today must be exchanged for a booklet within 6 months of purchase.
Using Philadelphia CityPASS is easy.
Once you have your booklets, your party can split up and visit the attractions in any order you wish. Note to grandparents: This is where you take the grandkids, and the parents go off on their own. It’s a win-win-win.
CityPASS perk alert: You’ll get to skip many ticket lines with CityPASS. Look at the tickets in the booklet for entry instructions at each attraction.
The tickets in your booklet are actual admission tickets. You’ll want to leave those in place for the pros at the attractions to tear out. If tickets are removed, they’ll be considered invalid. Sorry, but rules are rules.
You’ll love CityPASS. There’s no need to rush through the attractions because you have nine days to use your Philadelphia CityPASS booklet. That’ll give you enough time to fully experience the best attractions while leaving plenty of time for shopping, dining, shows, etc. Explore at your own pace – see several attractions in one day, or spread them out over your whole trip.
You’ll see there are several "option tickets" in the booklet that allow you to choose one or the other attraction. There’s no need to decide upfront which you want to see – choose when you get there. If you want to see both, many of our option ticket attractions offer admission discounts (see the coupons in the back of your ticket booklet).
And speaking of coupons, CityPASS booklets get you great savings on things like shopping, dining, transportation and entertainment, plus discounts at many of the attraction shops for unique souvenirs and gifts.
Between our booklets and our online Plan Your Visit pages, we’ve got you covered with insider tips, the best days and ways to see the attractions, maps and more, so you can get the most out of your trip.
Finally, we have a favor to ask. If you love your experience with CityPASS, will you share it with your friends and family? Tell them what a great time you had, or post about it on social media. Share your pics with the hashtag #citypass on Instagram or Twitter and you could win 4 CityPASS booklets to the city of your choosing.
