There is no better way to see San Francisco than with a CityPASS. With a CityPASS, I got 7 days of unlimited public transportation on all Muni and Cable cars, admission to the California Academy of Sciences, Blue & Gold Fleet Bay Cruise, Aquarium of the Bay or Monterey Bay Aquarium, Exploratorium or De Young Museum+Legion of Honor, plus coupons for other local tourist attractions and shopping outlets. If I wanted, I could have visited all of the attractions by getting a discount on the admission to the attraction I didn’t use the CityPASS for. With my CityPASS, I got entrance to the city’s four best attractions, plus saved 42% alone on unlimited cable car rides. Not only that, my CityPASS saved me 44% off the combined attraction prices. If you plan to visit the majority of San Francisco’s tourist attractions, then you will save money by purchasing a CityPASS online prior to your visit OR at any CityPASS attraction for the same low price. The convenience and discounts of a CityPASS is well worth having for the wonderful city of San Francisco
CityPASS is your key to the city! Having a CityPASS allowed me to not only save money, but to also save TIME. Saving time is very important to me because I want to see as much as I can in as little time as possible. As a hyperactive-tourist, I am always on the go! With a CityPASS, I could conveniently skip ticket lines at most attractions. With my CityPASS being valid for nine days, I had the freedom to visit the exhibits at my leisure. There is nothing worse than having to rush a visit to a city I’ve always dreamed about visiting. For $84 I had unlimited activities for nine days while saving $64.90 ($59 for a child ages 5-11 with savings of $52.90). I love deals and CityPASS is a steal of a deal. Anything that helps me save money while traveling makes me happy (especially since I am traveling for a total of 14 months)!
With 10 million CityPASSes sold since 1997, and 97% of people recommending CityPASS, there is no other way to go! I wish more cities had CityPASSes because I would get one for each destination that I visit. I like to do it all, so having a CityPASS made it possible while saving me money. With over ten U.S. and Canadian cities offering a CityPASS as an option: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, Houston, New York, Philiadelphia, Seattle, Southern California, Toronto, and of course the beloved San Francisco, traveling to popular destinations is now made easy. Each destination offers a variety of attractions (with up to 6 famous hot spots), plus other discounts and promotions. I wish I had known about CityPASS years ago when I started traveling in 2001; I could have saved a lot of money. Traveling is not cheap; I hope to help other savvy budget travelers save money along their journey.
The San Francisco CityPASS program has mastered the top must-see/must-do attractions. San Francisco has it all: beauty, culture, diversity, world-class cuisine, and famous landmarks. San Francisco’s official visitor website provides invaluable travel resources and information. The romantic and often foggy city is known for its European influence and walkable landscape. Be sure to visit the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) website for updated travel advisories prior to your trip and make a quick stop by the San Francisco Travel’s Visitor Information Center once you arrive to the city (900 Market St. in the Hallidie Plaza, lower level). San Francisco is one of my favorite U.S. cities! San Francisco has been voted as the “Best U.S. City” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine for 16 years in a row (San Francisco Travel).

I loved it so much when I visited for the first time in September, that I went back in November. There is so much to see and do! With unlimited activities and attractions in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Northern California, San Francisco is the perfect stopping point for the perfect California getaway. I can’t wait for my next visit!
