 The incredible value of the New York Pass

If you plan to visit New York City, the New York Pass is well worth the investment. This pass will allow you free admission to some of the top attractions New York has to offer, plus discounts on many more attractions and a 140-page guidebook that gives you information on many of the places you won't want to miss while you're visiting this great city.

The incredible value of the New York Pass

Some of the places you are allowed free admission to through your New York Pass include the following: The Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Isle with a free round-trip ferry ticket and gives you skip the line ticketing privileges, free admission to the Guggenheim Museum (although you may have to pay additional fees for special exhibits), the New York Skyride and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. These are just a few of the many places you can go without additional fees. If you plan to include many activities in your time in New York, this is by far the best way to do it.

There are often discount offers if you purchase multiple days of the New York Pass; however, the fact is that if you choose more than two events on a given day, you will probably save money on admission alone when you purchase the pass. If you are only planning one paid activity per day, it is best not to purchase a pass. With all vacations there are simple questions of economics involved. There are two forms of economics that come into play with vacations: money and time. Time is often the more carefully guarded of the two during vacations and people forget to pay attention to cast budgets, so they feel it is better to waste money than waste time.

I personally don't like to waste either. I enjoy the skip ahead privileges that often allow me to have city passes, as well as the knowledge that I have already paid for the day's activities and can keep a better eye on where the rest of my funds are spent.

In addition to the many freebies that are involved as a result of the New York Pass, there are also priceless discounts you can get on dining, souvenirs and even tours such as helicopter sightseeing tours of New York. And then there are some tours that having a New York Pass will also allow you to experience for free. These include: the United Nations Tour, the NBC Studio Tour, the Radio City Music Hall Stage Door Tour, the Rockefeller Center Tour and the Lincoln Center Tour.

The pass will introduce you to museums and zoos with free admission that you might not otherwise have considered and open the door to additional entertainment for the whole family. If you are going to be in New York for an extended period of time, 3 days or more, and plan to do a lot of sightseeing and sightseeing on your trip, I highly recommend that you purchase the New York Pass and use it every chance you get to get free admission and products or discounts on food and giveaways. This is by far one of the best tips anyone can give you about your visit to New York and your budget. I also recommend tailoring your experience to the free things on offer as much as possible and saving your money for gifts, souvenirs and the wonderful food and shows that abound in this fabulous city. Be sure to pay close attention when ordering tickets and check to see if you qualify for a discount because of your New York Pass. Do your best to enjoy your time and try not to pack too much into one day. There are only so many hours in a day and while New York may be the city that never sleeps, we all need sleep at some point.
