Starting in mid-February 2010 holders of the Go Seattle Card get free admission to even more area attractions. Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville are joining the program.
“We’ve been impressed with how Smart Destinations has grown both in Washington and in their other destinations,” said Whitney DalBalcon, Marketing and Public Relations Manager of Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. “Their focus on the visitor mirrors our own commitment to providing a world class experience. We’re looking forward to working together.”
Point Defiance is not only a wonderful zoo and aquarium, with its innovative Animal Avenue and Asian Forest Sanctuary exhibits, but also boasts breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and Puget Sound. Northwest Trek is home to more than 200 animals that are native to the Pacific Northwest. Visitors can scout for moose, bison, elk, mountain goats, and more from trams as the animals freely roam around them.
For a single price, the Go Seattle Card offers free admission to over 35 museums, tours, and other attractions for a low, fixed price. The Card also provides discounts at popular restaurants and shops and the ability to skip the lines at many attractions. Each Go Seattle Card also comes with a color-printed, pocket-sized guidebook full of maps, travel tips and itineraries for the Seattle area.
“With the help of our newest partners, we’ve taken a great product and made it even better,” said Cecilia Dahl, founder and President of Smart Destinations. “Customers already got a great value using the Card as a ticket to the Space Needle, the Museum of Flight, and our other Seattle partners. Were really excited to have Point Defiance and Northwest Trek. They truly are gems.”
Among the top attractions included in Go Seattle Card are The Space Needle, the Argosy Harbor Cruise, the Experience Music Project, the Pacific Science Center, and many others. In addition to the Zoo and the Northwest Trek, the Go Seattle Card covers a number of activities beyond Seattle such as Deception Pass tours, a number of cruises, the Tacoma Art Museum, a Woodinville Wine Tour and more.
