NYC Pass/Tips

Going to NYC for about 5 days. I was looking into getting one of those passes (e.g., CityPass, New York Pass) to get some discounts on things to do while we are there. What would you recommend?

Also, are there any must sees or any other advice.

We are definitely doing a Yankees game

I did the Big Red Bus and ordered it from Groupon when I got there. If you have a smart phone go right to the site on line and compare it to the price of buying it there. I literally bought the passes on the sidewalk using my smartphone then redeemed the tickets. I saved a lot of money doing it that way.

We went in March and we did get one of those passes. I don’t remember which one though. I made my DH and kids list their “must dos” and picked the pass that had the most attractions they wanted to go to.

Just s note, 13 year olds don’t enjoy a day visiting museums as much as the rest of the family.

We couldn’t get tickets to see the Statue of Liberty up close because we waited too long. So if you are going months from now, book it asap. Or you could do what we did and took the free ferry to Staten Island and back. It doesn’t go super close, but we had a good view of her lit up at night! And it was free!

“Stomp!”. It’s off broadway. It’s amazing. I totally recommend it. I’ve seen it 2x over the years. Broadway shows are good also, but “Stomp” is good if you aren’t into musicals/theater. Check it out on-line

I think we did the CityPass. Check into the attractions and see which pass works best for what you want to do. I second KatieViolet, get your tickets for the Statue of Liberty ASAP, especially if you want to go up. We waited too long and couldn’t get the tickets we wanted.

I loved the Met. We really enjoyed a sunset sightseeing cruise.

If you plan on taking the subway, get the 7-day unlimited ride for like $30. The regular fare is $2.75, and it adds up quick, let me tell you. I definitely think it is worth it.
