A free passport full of savings on local gems, you’ll discover the wonders of Worcester with the official Smile City Culture Passport. Whether you’re planning a day trip or a long weekend visit, there’s a perfect itinerary on tap for every kind of passport holder.  

For the Sports Fans  

Snag a $5 ticket to a Worcester Bravehearts game—the summer collegiate baseball team that plays on Fitton Field at the College of the Holy Cross. The team will host 34 home games this season, at which kiddos can run through the outfield mid-game, and enjoy fun swag giveaways throughout the game. Kids will have a blast enjoying the chicken fingers, cotton candy and ice cream too! After all that food and fun, you may want to rest your head over at the Courtyard by Marriott or the Hilton Garden Inn in Worcester, where they’re offering 25% off and 20% off room rates, respectively.

Adventure knows no bounds at Boundless Adventures Zipline and Aerial Park in Berlin, where tree climbers of every skill level can enjoy a day of adrenaline, plus 15% off merchandise to enhance the experience. Fuel up at Bean Counter Bakery & Café in Worcester (or Shrewsbury) with your free cookie or cupcake, as you make your way to Worcester’s EcoTarium for a dose of science and nature. The EcoTarium is also offering a discounted rate at their gift shop, so spoil the kids on this day full of fun with a toy to take home.

Must love dogs (and sweets)! Grafton boasts its own full-service dog bakery and pet boutique, Quite Fetching Barkery, which specializes in custom cakes for the pups, with impressively creative designs. And with your passport, you can snag a complimentary fresh-from-the-oven pupcake for your trusty sidekick.
