Yes, this page is “For Seniors Only” not because it is X rated, but rather because this information is only applicable to us old people! This section will continually be updated as we uncover more and more “Senior” benefits likes the ones you see below. Please check back for additions:
1. Visiting National Parks:
If you have reached the ripe old age of 62, and love to visit our National Parks, the Senior Pass is a must have! Costing only $10 if obtained at the park entrance, this is a lifetime pass available to United States citizens or permanent residents 62 years of age or older. The Pass can be used at over 2000 Federal recreation sites across the nation, including National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, and many National Forest lands. You get in free, along with those in your car and up to 3 additional people where a “per-person” fee is charged. For detailed information along with how to order by mail, check here.
2. Going to the UK? Traveling by train?
You need a Senior Rail Card ! Priced at £30, the Senior Rail Card is good for 1/3 off all your fares for one year from date of purchase. We got one as were traveling by train between our major destinations but found we used it on a regular basis just to get around adjacent towns. The rail system is quite extensive in the UK, making travel quite easy. For more information and to order online prior to your arrival, please click here.
