Senior Discount Travel and Recreation

Discounts Travel and Recreation

Your advancing years could result in some savings. As a senior - sometimes as young as 50 - you can now travel, eat out, go to the movies and even visit national monuments at a cut-rate price. Just ask for the senior discount and, in many cases, you will get one.

At age 62, you also qualify for a NATIONAL PARK SERVICE GOLDEN AGE PASSPORT. This is a lifetime entrance permit (after a $10 processing fee) to national parks, monuments, recreation areas and national wildlife refuges. It also provides a 50 percent discount on federal use fees for facilities and services. For more information, call 1-888-GOPARKS (467-2757), or visit the National Park Service on-line. Golden Age Passports can only be obtained in person at any national park, wildlife refuge or forest, as well as certain other federal offices.
