Where we’ve been, where we’re headed

Co-founders Ethan and Emily launched PlacePass in 2016 from a small house in Harvard Square affectionately known as “The Garage.” Lifelong travelers, they’d been exploring the world one activity at a time (think dog sledding in western Canada; kayaking in Maine; cooking classes in Lebanon;) but were frustrated by how much time and energy it took to find those high-quality experiences. They hit on the idea for a single marketplace that could bring amazing activities together, and PlacePass was born.


We’ve since left The Garage for bigger digs in Boston, but the spirit of adventure that shaped those early days has remained the same as we grow. We now offer experiences to customers in more than 180 countries worldwide, and we’re proud to be backed by leading travel and technology investors who support our ambition to transform the way people travel.
