When going on vacation, one always looks to save money any way they can. One of the ways to do this by heading to “Smart Destinations” and purchasing a Go City Card.
These cards are available for a multitude of cities, including New York, Boston, LA, and San Diego.
You can go ahead and plan out your itinerary, and if done right you can save a lot of money…in my case over $200 from the base price of each location.
It isn’t always cost worthy, so price yourself out before you purchase!
This also means that you can go to places you may not have paid for otherwise, and you can leave after 5 minutes if you don’t like something, without worrying about just wasting money on admission.
Depending on the city, you can choose from 1-, 2-, 3-, 5-, and 7-day passes, depending on how long you are going to be in town; or you can choose a pass based on how many locations you plan on heading to.
So when I planned out my week in San Diego, I determined that the 7-day pass was best suited for my stay, and here are some helpful guides in case anyone else wants to head to the attractions and sights of San Diego.
Below you have two helpful tools that work well together:
The first is an excel spreadsheet that lists all the locations, listing the would be cost if you paid for it seperately, how many hours are suggested for visiting, and the times they are open (as of October 2017). It also has the cost of parking for some of the locations. Lastly, it lists a “Zone”, which I sorted out based on key locations (Legoland, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, Downtown, etc.).
I then took those zones and plotted them on a map, the second tool below, which uses Google Maps and the MyMaps app.
