Going somewhere? Check out walking tours, sightseeing cruises on Goldstar

If you already use the free online discounter Goldstar, youre accustomed to getting half-off tickets to concerts, shows, ballgames and other events. But I also found some interesting travel options in Boston, Washington, D.C., New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul (added this month) and other cities on Goldstar’s roster.

The deals are always somewhat last-minute, but they’re worth checking out, especially if you have a particular event in mind. For example, you might look in November and December for discounts on tickets to the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular” in New York City.

Register for Goldstar for free and then peruse events as well as reviews from folks who have been to the advertised event or tour. Here are some listings I found this week while browsing (prices below don’t reflect service fees added by Goldstar):
