Last I knew, America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreation Area passes were offered free (beginning 2012) to active military and their dependents, including active Guard and Reserve, but not retirees. Did anything change? I concur with others who sing the praises of our Senior Pass. There is not much out there that offers so much for so little. Wolf.

We do have it pretty good, shskovcs. Come to Florida for the Winter... having been born and raised in the Venice area (I would include Sarasota, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers and even Naples) there are thousands of Canadians down there; come join them. I now live in North FL.

The only thing keeping me from driving north in the Summer is the cost for fuel.

Thanks King, I lived in Nokomis when a kid, from about 11 years old... Nokomis is so close to Venice, I think of them both as home town. The old timers actually settled in Englewood... I am 4th generation Florida resident. Have a safe trip back down when you come. Wolf

Youroo, ATB is actually for everyone and is $80 annually. It is however a FREE annual pass for active military and their dependents, this includes Reservists. There isn't a pass specifically for veterans; however many qualify for the lifetime Senior pass at $10, for those 62 years of age and older; there is also a FREE lifetime Access Pass for disabled US citizens or permanent residents.

Can't recommend the National Park Service Senior pass enough. I bought mine last month when I turned 62 ( 10 bucks-good for life) we are in Bar Harbor Me and used the pass the first day here at Acadia who charges 20 bucks for a seven day pass. Score! It's good for the driver and up to 3 passengers and is good at any national park that charges admission ( plus good for life!)
We are having a ball in Maine and enjoying the cool weather after escaping the extreme heat at home in Florida and hope to be traveling for several more weeks

Thanks for all the info. I'm not a senior yet but close enough guess I'll be buying my pass. LOL Thanks for the savings tips I need it for fuel costs.
