80% Off Local Attractions With Explore Chicagoland Book

Starting Nov. 1, you can buy an Explore Chicagoland book for $79 that contains entry tickets to 28 local attractions. I like this bit of the Web site text, which makes it clear that these are regular entry tickets and not coupons:

"When we say FREE, we mean FREE - not coupons, buy one get ones, or discounted offers; FREE means FREE!"

You can reserve a copy now, which might be a good idea since only 5,000 will be sold. The attractions include the Brookfield Zoo, the Kohl Children's Museum, Navy Pier IMAX, Raging Waves water park, Sesame Street Live and a bunch of other stuff.

I was considering buying each member of our family a season pass to Great America for $59 for 2011, but ... maybe this would be more enjoyable. Keep in mind that you can get free passes to some of these museums and events from your local library.

Still, this is a steal. If you were able to do all 28 attractions, the $79 price of this book would make for an 80% discount. Not bad at all!
