  • Window Displays were such a great memory from my past that I wanted my granddaughter to share the experience. The Macy's on State Street has many windows decorated for Christmas. The store is nicely d...  more »

  • Did the math. Saved 42% or $78.44 per pass) with the 5-Choice Explorer Pass vs. what we would have paid at each attraction. We did the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour, Chicago Art Institute, Navy Pier Rides, Architecture River Cruise (a favorite!), and Bike and Roll rental and we biked up the North Lakeshore Path (another favorite!). Only thing I'm docking a star for is: I tried to go to SkyDeck TWICE and the line was too long--this pass says there is a "Smart Destinations express entry sign" but I never even saw that sign, even after waiting in line, just to get to the ticketing line, 30 minutes before giving up and choosing another attraction instead--silver lining: this pass makes it super easy to just choose another attraction when one doesn't work out for one reason or another. I have and will use this pass in another city and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to save on attractions in Chicago!
  • The card was super easy to use.
  • I bought six 2-day's all inclusive City Go Passes for my whole family at more than$700 but I was fully disappointed with several things you may want to know before you purchase this. 1. You can't redeem your cruise tickets in 1 day advance. You have to go to the ticket booth at the same day you want to get on the cruise. You have to get a line and wait for your turn - 1st come, 1st serve. If tickets are all sold out at a specific time, your schedule will be screwed up! No combined boat tour - river and lake..You have to choose either lake tour at Navy pier or river tour at river. 2. Big bus ticket redemption is only available at a few stops only at limited time. So, i had to take a taxi to redeem bus tickets. Moremover, You have to wait for a staff to show up after 9am while you are missing the 1st bus at 9am. Be aware that No buses after 5pm. I had to spend money to take taxi again. Other bus - Chicago Trolley & double decker - run until late 10pm. 3. No fast entrance at Shed aquarium and field museum.
  • This is absolutely the way to see Chicago if you have several days to spend there, at an incredible cost savings! My daughter and I purchased the five-day card, and we saved a LOT of money with it because literally everything we wanted to do and see are included with this card! Even better, there are things included that we probably would not have done, had we had to pay for them individually, and we ended up really enjoying these things we would never have seen or done otherwise. I'm not sure how much you would save on a two- or three-day card, but we consider our five-day card the best vacation choice we've ever made!
  • Amazing resource in Chicago that not a lot of people are aware of. The building is labeled as a Public Library because that was it's original purpose. The interior is amazing and all open to the public. Wonderful place for photos. Free wifi, so great place to come and hang out. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so also a great place for that mid-day nap. Go check it out once and you'll be sure to come back and visit. Free tours available as well.
