Save Money on Admission to Great Chicago Attractions
Chicago is a world-class tourist destination and the Hilton Chicago is located on the “Cultural Michigan Avenue Mile” which overlooks Grant Park and Lake Michigan, Millennium Park and the Museum Campus. Many visitors take advantage of the city cards that provide admission to museums and other places of interest for one price that is less expensive than individual admission.
Perhaps the two best known passes are the Chicago CityPass, starting at $49.50(US) and the Go Chicago Card starting at $55 (US). Both Cards maximize savings in time and money since you don’t have to wait in line for tickets and the cost of the cards is less than admission to individual attractions.
Chicago CityPass Includes VIP Admission to the Shedd Aquarium, The Field Museum and Underground Adventure, Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, Museum of Science and Industry plus OMNIMAX. According to the web site, www.citypass.com/city/chicago.html, “It’s not surprising that three marquee names in science and entertainment—the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and famous Field Museum—are sited on a vast, green lawned cam pus with the lake at its edge and the skyline as its ornamental backdrop. Not far away, the Museum of Science and Industry beckons. The view from the Hancock Observatory, high above fabled Michigan Avenue, offers a daytime three state view or shimmering night a ngles of neighborhoods, trains and shipping lanes.”
The Go Chicago Card, www.gochicagocard.com, states that they offer admission to over 25 of the best attractions, activities, and tours including Top Museums like the Art Institute, sightseeing such as the Architectural River Cruise, Chicago’s Children’s Museum, and the Sears Tower Skydeck.
