New Here? Start Here.


Hi, my name is Kathy Summers. I’m thrilled you’re here because it means you’re about to go out and do something fun.

Whether you’re looking for something to do in a city you explore every day, or discovering a city for the first time, I hope you’ll find the activity reviews on this website helpful. To be savvy in the city, you want to go out smarter, not just cheaper. What you don’t want? Tourist traps. Deals that don’t deliver. Pages of expired coupons. Tickets from shady sources.

Kathy SummersIf I wouldn’t recommend it to my best friends, you won’t find it here. This is where I share research-based insights and inspiration, and if nothing else you’ll have a fun armchair adventure, whether you venture out or not.

Here on Savvy Cities you’ll find hand-picked activity deals, attraction offers, sports event promos, family ticket discounts, and savvy side trip suggestions, all researched and vetted. And, in most cases, you’ll find a choice of ticket sources and tips for getting the most out of every experience. (More about this.)
