I am planning to visit Chicago upcoming Spring or early Summer. As I am researching the web - I came across a site (ithink it was http://www.cheapcitypasses.com/chicago.php), offering city passes for chicago which includes free admission to numerous destinations. Passes are also available for various durations.

I am wondering if any one has any experience with Go Cards or is it just waste of time. I am planning to get a 7-Day Pass. I have never visited Chicago before and no relatives/friends to guide me

Thanks

If you plan on going to a lot of things, it is definitely worth it! If you buy your tickets a la carte, it really adds up. It would make your trip more enjoyable because you can just enjoy yourself without worrying about spending money at each destination. Just do a bit of planning ahead and make sure you go to what you want!

I am impressed that they have some cool lesser known spots like Kingston Mines and Fados mentioned in the coupons!

To see if other cool (and free!) things check out this site http://www.explorechicago.org/city/en.html.

Have fun!
