As the ongoing public health crisis continues to impact the travel industry and cities around the globe, The Sightseeing Pass announces a new giveaway program for local residents, where up to one million of its savings passes will be distributed across its 12 partner cities around the United States and Europe, including Orlando, New York City, and Philadelphia through its website.
The program is designed to support each city and encourage locals to enjoy a staycation right at or close to home without the crowds and the usual summer traffic jams.
“This is a unique opportunity for locals to become tourists and support local businesses, local attractions and neighborhoods without the typical, peak summer crowds,” said Ken Barrows, Vice President of The Sightseeing Pass. “We hope this program will provide greater accessibility for those seeking more affordable entertainment and outdoor recreation options during the summer season, from expanded outdoor dining to sunset sails and a range of other options to simply see your own city.”
This discount program provides special offers and savings on outdoor dining, retail and a variety of outdoor activities typically reserved for Sightseeing Pass holders including:
- In New York City: Enjoy the savings and sounds of the water on an iconic clipper vessel with Manhattan by Sail or shop till you drop at New York City’s first outlet destination at Empire Outlets on Staten Island’s North Shore, where a trip on the free Staten Island Ferry provides panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty and NY Harbor. The program also includes a day trip out to wine country in Long Island and the Hudson Valley, along with deals on meals at flavorful restaurants such as Woodpecker Pizza Bar & Grill.
- In Philadelphia: Take a swing at mini-golfing in Franklin Square, climb up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum on the Rocky Walking Tour, explore the city’s culinary cuisine and history with a meal at City Tavern Restaurant, a place where the country’s founding fathers once dined.

The program comes with the mindset of encouraging local wanderlust in and around these cities. Additional cities included in the new Sightseeing Pass program include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Smoky Mountains, London, England, and Malaga, Costa Del Sol. Program activities vary by city, but a general sampling across all partner cities includes rental cars for weekend getaways between cities, various retail and dining offers, sunset sails for a relaxing escape, walking tours, bike rentals, and more.
