No doubt about it. Boston, Cape Cod and the surrounding area is a sightseeing mecca!
From Boston's historic Freedom Trail and iconic Fenway Park, to the scenic shores of Cape Cod and the intrigue of Salem, there's a wealth of fun and interesting things to see and do in the city and nearby!
But let's face it, folks. All that sightseeing can take a big bite out of your fun budget ... if you let it.
What's a GO City Pass?
Simply put: it's the handiest thing I've ever found for saving money on sightseeing in our area. And believe me, I've checked out a whole bunch of discount offers over the years! ;-)
How much can you save? Up to 55% off regular admission prices.
I say "up to" 55% because the GO City program is kind of like an all-you-can-eat buffet. The more you eat (or in this case, the more you see and do), the more you save.
The first thing to know is that GO City offers two different kinds of discount passes:
The All-Inclusive pass allows you to visit 40+ of the top attractions in Boston and beyond, all for one flat rate.
This is how it works:
Here's just a small sampling of what the All-Inclusive card covers in the city:

And here are some of the attractions covered by the All-Inclusive pass outside the city:
The key to getting the most savings from an All-Inclusive card is ...
Being realistic about how many activities and attractions you can (and want to) squeeze into the number of days your card is valid.
This is my favorite of the two GoCity passes because it allows for plenty of flexibility to see the sights at your own comfortable pace!
How it works:
Visit the USS Constitution Museum and tour the grand old ship one day.
Another day, go exploring in the historic town of Salem.
All the witchy sites are fun to visit. And so is "Real Pirates Salem" where you'll see authentic treasure recovered from a pirate ship that went down off the coast of Cape Cod in the early 1700s.
Enjoy your sightseeing adventures ... and your savings!
