What is CityPASS?

Our activities with CityPASS were sponsored in part by Visit Tampa Bay.  All opinions are my own.

What is CityPASS?

CityPASS is a program that allows you to purchase admission to the top attractions in a particular area at a substantial discount. 

Recently, we used our Tampa Bay CityPASS to access some of the best family attractions in Tampa, including Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, ZooTampa at Lowry Park, the Clearwater Aquarium, and a choice of the Museum of Science & Industry or the Chihuly Collections.

Our CityPASS tickets saved lots of time because we were able to avoid having to stand in line to purchase tickets at each attraction.  Right now, the current Tampa Bay CityPASS saves you over 50% in comparison to regular ticket prices!

CityPASS tickets are currently available in 14 destinations.

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Houston
  • New York City
  • Orlando
  • Philadelphia
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Southern California
  • Tampa Bay
  • Toronto

I lived in Tampa as a kid and used to visit my grandmother after we moved away. It is such a fun city to live in and visit. My daughter lives in NYC now, so I will check into a CityPASS when we go to visit her.

CityPass is a brilliant way to save money if you're planning to visit multiple attractions in a city. I always recommend it to my friends and family when they travel.
