Travel with a CityPASS it a great way to see a city! Review and #Giveaway

 As you all know we love to travel.  We love to try new things, and visiting new city’s is a great way to do just this. But traveling can get expensive, there are so many costs when you travel. From, airfare to the hotels, to food to entertainment. It can really add up! But there is a way to save on the entertainment for your next trip, make sure to pick up a CityPASS you will save so much $! Here is a little more information about CityPASS from the website:

Launched in 1997 in Seattle and San Francisco, CityPASS bundles prepaid admission to each city’s top attractions – based on annual attendance – into one easy-to-use ticket booklet whose cost is up to half off what it would cost to purchase those same admissions separately. And, because CityPASS limits the number of attractions on each city’s pass to five or six of the most popular sights, visitors have ample time to enjoy a destination, never feeling the need to rush frantically from attraction to attraction to get their money’s worth.

My family and I were very fortunate to be able to review The Hollywood CityPASS this pass gives you admission to must-see Hollywood attractions

I was very fortunate to visit LA a few months ago on a Disney/Marvel press trip, during the trip the bloggers visited Madame Tussauds Hollywood. We got to check out this great museum, it was a fun time. The only thing that was missing was… my family! 

I could not wait to come back to LA and share the fun wax museum experience with my husband and my daughter. I knew my daughter would love seeing her favorite celebrities in wax for, they look so real!  And of course we had a great time at Madame Tussauds Hollywood. My daughter loved playing with the props, and hanging with the stars.

If you are looking for a way to see a great city for less CityPASS is a great way to see more for less money.  The price is a great price, for all you get this is very affordable.  

The savings seem unbelievable, like there has to be a catch right? Nope, no catch, you just save BIG with CityPASS. If you are traveling in any city that offers a CityPASS I would highly suggest getting a pass, you will get the most out of the city and you will save BIG!

We also got to checkout the Starline tour bus that offered hop on hop off tours all around LA. We toured Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica blvd, and checked out a lot of celebrity hot spots. Of course we had to get off and have some Pinks hot dogs, they were so good, and they were huge!

We loved the bus tour, we got to see many sights we never saw in LA before. 

Next we were off to the Hollywood Museum, where we saw a little bit of nearly everything from Hollywood. They had an amazing amount of Marilyn Monroe items, it was wonderful to see.

Overall my family and I had a great day in LA, and City Pass made it easier for us all to have a great time and save $$.
