If you’re thinking about buying a CityPASS, now’s the time to get one. Prices go up on March 1, 2010. In Atlanta, that’s a difference of $5/book, but for a family of four, that $20 can buy you a cheap lunch out (or pay for a couple of days of parking, if necessary).
I’ve used CityPASS before, and it’s a good way to be a tourist in your hometown—you’ll save about 50% off the cost of admission to the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Zoo Atlanta, Inside CNN Studio Tour, Fernbank Museum of Natural History OR Atlanta Botanical Garden, and High Museum of Art OR Atlanta History Center.
The downside is that it’s only valid for 9 days, but it’s certainly doable without stress. If you start using your book on a Saturday, you’ll have four weekend days to see the city, and some attractions double-up nicely.
If you buy your CityPASS before March 1, you’ll pay the old rate, but you don’t have to use your book right away. If you order the physical booklets, you have one year (until March 2011) before you have to use it. If you opt for an eTicket, you’ll need to exchange it for an actual booklet within 90 days, which is well timed if you’re looking for a cheap staycation over spring break. Prices are going up in Boston, San Francisco & Seattle, too, if you’re looking to cut costs & are planning a vacation.
