On Location Tours has offered the Sex and the City tour (over 40 locations where the women on the show live, shop, drink and dine) since 2001 and it's never been more popular for those who long to revive their memories of Carrie, Amanda, Samantha and Charlotte, an inimitable collection of friends. Or as an antidote for those with finale blues . " . . .they're depressed about the end of the show. This bus is like group therapy," Georgette Blau, On Locations's founder, as quoted in New York Magazine, December 20-27, 2004.

With CityPass, you pay one substantially reduced price and avoid main entrance ticket lines at most attractions. (No such luck in Southern California — no surprise!)
The number of attractions offered depends on the city's collection, their proximity to one another, and public transportation.
