New York City Explorer Pass Tickets

  • About the New York City Explorer Pass

    What makes New York special is not only how much there is to do, but also the variety of options. Art lovers have a seemingly infinite assortment of museums and galleries to choose from. Shopaholics can go from an outlet mall to small boutiques in a single day’s jaunt. The same manner of diversity applies to hike and bike fans, foodies and history geeks, too…which is why Smart Destinations’ New York City Explorer Pass is so genius.

    Buying an Explorer Pass enables a customized experience; enjoy only the venues, activities and enclaves that are of personal interest. No need to fight with travel companions about where to go and what to do, or about getting dragged places someone has zero interest in going.

    It works like this: choose from a set of three, five, seven or ten options – out of a menu of 54 top attractions in and around New York – and then see and do them for one flat fee. From a movie tour of Central Park to a full day bike rental to a trip to the Museum of Sex, there’s no shortage of selections.

    Once you’ve decided on an itinerary, no pressure to do it all in one day or even one week. The Pass stays valid for 30 days and comes with a full-color guidebook so you can experience New York at your own pace. If time is your issue, think of the Pass as your key to the city. Just flash it to save time and skip the ticket line at many top attractions.

    After experiencing New York your way, you may find you want to do it again – exploring a completely different side of the city. Of course, that’s allowed too. That’s what New York is all about.

    Like Sinatra said, it’s up to you.

    Good for kids?
    There are several kid-friendly attractions from activity-based bike excursions to educational historic tours and museum visits that’s why there are Passes specifically for children ages 3-12.

    You know your kids better than we do, but we’re thinking they’ll do best at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, Ripley’s Believe it Or Not! and Food on Foot. Just know that many of the attractions involve lots of walking so dress accordingly and, where possible, come packing with the snacks you know they’ll need.

    Did you know?
    Most attractions are free for children under three.
