Boston case. The first, I hope, not the last city-pass use.
I am not very sure that Boston was a city to explore with a city pass, but I’ve got that card as a present to my birthday and couldn’t refuse visiting the set of activities. In comparison with St. Petersburg which offers a lot of places to see with a Petersburg Card the range of activities was kind of small, but visiting all those places took the whole day.
Through 4-5 places I managed to visit just 3: those were New England Aquarium, Museum of Science, Skywalk Observatory. New England aquarium was full of fish and water inhabitants, there was an option to pat the ramps… but, to be honest, I am not a fan of sea life and I wasn’t as excited as the groups of school children.
The next museum on my way was a Museum of Science. Such a great place! Not all the parts of it were interesting, but I really loved the section with optical illusions and different science tricks – I explored them all! I had a very fun time there. In the evening I went to Skywalk Observatory and looked at the city in the evening lights. It was a good view but nothing especial or extraordinary comparing to skyscrapers in American or European cities.
I know that I saved a lot of money by using that city pass but I am not very sure that all the museums were for me. I like to have the variety of options to choose the best one for me. During that day I also took Duck Tour separately and would wish that option to be included into the pass – that was so much fun, I liked it even more than some of the attractions mentioned above.
I understand that the contest is about recalling the best use of the best city pass program, but unfortunately that was the only time I explored the city in such a way and I am sure I would take all the advantages of Petersburg city-pass if I win it.
