The program, administered by the Southern Arizona Attractions Alliance, offers savings on admission to more than 90 popular venues around the Tucson area.

Due to COVID-19 shuttering such attractions, SAAA is extending the life of the passport, which was set to expire on Sept. 15, to Nov. 15.

The passport provides a key source of revenue for advertising and marketing the attractions throughout the year, the SAAA said.

Many of the attractions are nonprofit organizations that rely on attendance for sustainability.

The passport is geared to tourists as well as locals who regularly visit participating attractions.

Passports with the extended expiration date are available for $11 to $25 depending on the length of time purchased.
