Chicago CityPASS: 9 Days & 5 Famous Sights
See Chicago’s famous Shedd Aquarium
Take Chicago at your own pace with 9 days to see the major sights
Enjoy five of Chicago’s most famous attractions.
There’s no need to rush around Chicago with this CityPASS. Valid for 9 days, the CityPASS gives you access to five of Chicago’s top attractions, including the world-famous Skydeck.
CityPASS includes admission to five of Chicago’s most famous attractions, and with nine days to experience it all, you’ve got plenty of time to make the most of your trip to Chicago.
The CityPASS system is simple. At the first attraction you visit, exchange your voucher for a CityPASS booklet. Then, at each subsequent attraction, a ticket will be torn from your booklet.
So what exactly can you experience with the CityPASS booklet? One stop is the Shedd Aquarium, where you can see otters, lizards, whales and dolphins – and much, much more. Shedd Aquarium is home to more than 32,000 animals, housed under one octagonal dome.
You can also check out the Skydeck, which, at 1,353 feet, is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The Field Museum is on the list too, while there are two option tickets that give you access to either the John Hancock Observatory or the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Adler Planetarium or the Art Institute of Chicago.
Otters and an octopus, lizards, whales and dolphins. Sea jellies and a sea turtle. And, of course, a wild assortment of fishes, from tetras to sharks. Shedd Aquarium is home to 32,500 animals that swim and crawl, slither and fly — all under one octagonal dome.
