Suddenly Sixty: Parks

Question: What is good about the age of 62?

Answer: 2016 is the 100th anniversary of the US National Parks. In honor of the century, the NPS offers every US Citizen or Permanent Resident who is 62 or older a lifetime visitors pass for $10, when you pay in person, and $20, when you pay online or through the mail. No kidding. Just go to their website and sign up today. Reaching this august age and signing up allows you to avoid the annual $80 costs for your car full of family, when you go to these national treasures.

If you are a veteran, you can go to our National Parks for free.
