Retirees often include visits to national parks on their bucket lists, and the National Park Service helps to cater to retirees by offering discounted passes for seniors aged 62 and over. These passes grant unlimited access to parks for a nominal fee, providing an affordable travel option regardless of financial status. Some parks are more accessible for seniors than others, and this list specifically recommends the 15 best national parks for seniors to visit.


Key Takeaways:

📌 Individuals over 50 can benefit from significant travel discounts and resources by joining AARP, which offers savings on various travel expenses such as hotels, airfare, and car rentals.

📌 Consider a National Park Service Senior Pass, which also grants access to numerous recreation sites managed by other agencies that update their facilities to be more senior-friendly.
