There are a lot of deals for seniors in the US but in my opinion the absolute best deal has got to be the inter agency lifetime senior pass. The pass, available to anyone who is at least 62, allows holders to enter any recreational area managed by five agencies, including the National Parks Service, Fish and Wildlife, Department of Interior and two others.
The cost for this pass is a one time payment of $10. And, the pass covers everyone in the vehicle even if they are not seniors. The cost to enter Yellowstone in a non-commercial vehicle is $25, so just visiting that park immediately pays for the pass and saves you $15.
I’ve visited every major national park in the west and many smaller ones as well. I plan to visit them more now that I‘m retired. So, I bought a senior pass.
When you visit the wide open areas of the west you realize what a big country it is. Here are selected photos of national parks from my trips.
I’m looking forward to visiting the Big County!
