Boston, MA — Smart Destinations, the company behind Go City Cards and Explorer Passes, announces a significant expansion of its Go Seattle Card offering. Starting in mid-February holders of the Go Seattle Card will get even more for the price of the card.

Featured new partners include Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, with its innovative Animal Avenue and Asian Forest Sanctuary exhibits – not to mention breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and Puget Sound. Also joining is Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville. 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.

“We’ve been impressed with how Smart Destinations has grown both in Washington and in their other destinations,” said Whitney DalBalcon, Marketing & Public Relations Manager of Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. “Their focus on the visitor mirrors our own commitment to providing a world class experience. We’re looking forward to working together.”

The Go Seattle Card offers the ultimate in convenience, cost savings and flexibility for visitors to the area. Customers get free admission to over 35 museums, tours, and attractions for a low, fixed price. The Card serves as an actual ticket to any of the participating attractions. 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. Now with the same product they can get even more.”

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 Wine Tour and more.
