Destinations

Family travelers typically head somewhere warm for spring break, but, this year, they might consider tapping into a hot new travel trend known as the “coolcation.” Travelers head to more temperate, yet refreshing destinations rather than warm, sunny ones. With travel app Go City, families on the go can experience an array of attractions, such as tours and classes, in more than 30 different cities around the world. Users choose a destination, pick a pass and explore top destinations within the app.

 

Visit these destinations and more with Go City:

 

Boston

Explore New England Aquarium, with penguin colonies, seals and more, before a tour at Fenway Park.
