The presents are opened, the wrapping paper in the trash bin. The kids are getting antsy already.
If you’ve never been to the High Museum of Art or have not checked out the new penguin babies at the Georgia Aquarium, this could be the time.
And if you bundle a few trips to some of Atlanta’s best-known sites, you can save money with a combo ticket that is not much known, except maybe to convention hawkers.
The Atlanta CityPass will get you into five of the city’s seven biggest tourist draws for one price. It’s good for the aquarium, the CNN studio tour, and the World of Coca-Cola; it also will get you into either the High Museum of Art or the Fernbank Museum of Natural History and either Zoo Atlanta or the Atlanta History Center.
You can buy a CityPass online at www.citypass.com/atlanta, or at the attractions. The cost for the multiple-entry booklet of tickets is $74 for adults and $54 for children 3 to 12 (42 percent savings).
The tickets are good for nine days from first use, so you can take your time and see everything. Users also can get expedited entry at some attractions.
Smart travelers, take note: CityPass is also available in 11 U.S. cities such as New York, San Francisco and Boston to their top attractions.
