The New York City Pass

OK, I'm going to go utterly touristy and travel blog related, and blow the horn of this wonderful little thing I found on the internet while researching our holiday in New York City.

The New York City Pass is a very clever little invention. One set fee for 70 of New York's biggest attractions, based on how many days you have to explore. We had the luxury of spending seven days using the pass, and paid $175 for that luxury.

A little flash of the card, and you can jump queues, get discounts and enter into a whole pile of the top spots you want to visit across the city.

Wanna know what we got to see?

Here's the post about the NBC Studio Tour, bowling at Bowlmor, and the Guggenheim.

We also went on a walking tour across the Brooklyn Bridge and into DUMBO.
We had a once-in-a-lifetime experience sailing around Manhattan on the 1929 Shearwater, an 82-foot double-masted Great Gatsby era sailing yacht.
And then we got to do a whole pile of other things, including:

- Bodies: The Exhibit
- Museum of Sex
- MoMA
- Statue of Liberty
- Spy: The Exhibit
- Ripley's Believe It Or Not
- Empire State Building
- Top of the Rock
And there was even more we did do, and could have done! We just ran out of time. Check out the full list of attractions here.

What a winner.

Coming up this week: more NYC posts, the next big part of our adventure (which I'm over the moon about!) and some mini restaurant reviews!
