Are we genealogy groupies?

Planning a trip this summer? Since 1997, CityPass.com has been offering sightseeing booklets for specific cities. Each one includes a map, public transportation info, and insider travel tips. Updates for attractions are online and each pass is valid from April 1, 2009-March 31, 2010.

This caught my eye, as New York City was in the list of cities, and the blurb referred to "geneology groupies." (I emailed them about the spelling error; they responded quickly with a thank you.)

New York CityPass saves both time and money -- benefits that don't come easy in America's capital of finance, fashion, and ambition. Geneology groupies can now trace, to the day, the emigration of great-great grandparents, while modern art aficionados get their fill of seminal artists in digs designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Valid for nine days from first use, ticket booklets include one admission to: The Empire State Building Observatory, American Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the option of either a two-hour day or cocktail cruise aboard Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises, or a visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Adults, $79.00, a savings of $61.00, youth 13-17, $59.00, a savings of $42.00.

Other cities are Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto.

If you are planning to spend more time in Philadelphia this summer before or following the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (August 2-7), you might want to investigate the Philadelphia CityPass.
