What is a Go California card?

How does the Go California card work?
The Explorer pass lets you choose a select number of attractions to visit within 30 days. Once you've chosen your pass and purchased, it's ready to use.

How does the Explorer pass work?
The Explorer pass is perfect for sightseers who are visiting a city for longer and want to take their time seeing the sights without much of a time constraint.
With the Explorer pass, you can choose the number of attractions you're interested in seeing, either 3, 4, or 5. Once you've activated your pass by visiting an attraction, you'll then have up to 30 days to visit the rest. There is no need to choose which attractions you'd like to see before you purchase the card, you can pick and choose any of the Explorer attractions as you go. This allows you to change your mind and see how you feel in the moment.
