Hip Hotel (Toronto, Ontario) matches up Solo Travelers for City Adventures

This innovative hotel wants your business!







Still feeling sad Sex and the City is no longer on HBO? Remember Carrie's West Village Brownstone, The Plaza where Big and Natasha held their engagement party, the bakery where Miranda stuffed cupcakes into her mouth OR Meet restaurant where Carrie was stood up by a blind date [even she faced the challenges of solo dining!]?

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.

When: Daily at 3pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and 3pm
How long: Approximately 3 hours
How much: $35 per ticket
Where: In front of Pulitzer Fountain (Fifth Avenue by 58th Street)

P.S. Three other separate tours are currently offered: a Manhattan TV and Movie Tour, a Sopranos Tour, and a Central Park Movie Tour.




CityPass

National Geographic Traveler August 2003 dubbed it "The Pass with Class" and added it to their A* List (*A is for affordable).

Now available in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Hollywood, San Francisco, Southern California and Toronto (includes Art Gallery of Ontario, Casa Loma, CN Tower, Ontario Science Centre, Royal Ontario Museum, and Toronto Zoo).

CityPass is a ticket booklet containing an actual admission ticket to the top attractions in each city.

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.


All of their Cities update every April 1.
