 Currently, Grand Canyon National Park does not have special rates for military retirees however, the park's admission fee is free on Veterans Day. There are currently discounted rates available for senior citizens and for the disabled. Please follow this link for information on park passes. There is currently a law pending in the House of Representatives that would make the National Park's pass available at a discount to veterans. Please write to your member of congress and support this legislation.

You're in luck! According to our contacts at the National Park Service, this year's scheduled opening date for the North Rim is May 15. The North Rim almost always opens on the scheduled date, but be sure to check with the NPS as your trip date approaches. More information and phone numbers are available here.

The America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreations Lands- Pass- Senior Pass will admit the pass holder and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at per vehicle pay areas. In parks that require a per person fee, the pass will admit the pass holder and up to three adults (children under 16 are free). In cases where the pass provides a discount for such amenities as campsites etc, the discount will generally only apply for the pass holder.

In the Badlands this senior pass will be good for one non commercial vehicle

Yosemite Falls is one of the most stunning sites in the entire park. It is the tallest falls in North America and the 5th tallest in the world. Yosemite Falls is actually made up of three water falls, Upper Falls, the middle cascades and Lower Falls. There are several hikes that will take you around the falls. You can even climb up to the top. That being said, the falls do tend to dry up in the late summer. Their is no particular date and it varies on the rain and snowfall the park received that year. I was there in late July and was still able to see the falls.  The falls is at its peak in the spring when melted snow plunges over the cliff. The falls are also a great site in the when the cliffs are covered with ice and snow.

Denali National Park is deep in the heart of Alaska's bear country. It is almost impossible to drive through the park without seeing a bear. One of your best bets to see a bear is take one of the many bus tours offered by the park. These tours afford visitors the chance to become familiar with the park and surrounding areas. Denali is a largely pristine, undeveloped park. A few years ago a conscious decision was made to not develop its hiking trails. 

Bears are most often found near where they feed. They are most often seen in many of the berry patches in the park.

During the summer it is very important to follow proper safety precautions. Park Rangers can alert you to proper procedures to avoid injuries in bear country. Bears can be particularly hostile during this time of year while they are raising their young. Always remember, bears are wild and if startled can be deadly.

Unfortunately right now, the Idaho Parks Pass cannot be purchased online. Reservations can be made online to stay at the parks in either a cabin or at a campsite. To purchase a parks pass, a sticker may be purchased at any Idaho State Park Regional Service Center (Boise, Idaho Falls and Coeur d'Alene) or by calling (208) 334-4199.

Hi, there!  It depends on the sort of experience you are looking for.  Some places will offer lots of cultural history, stories of people and places;  some will offer an abundance of nature and the outdoors.  Perhaps you seek one or the other;  perhaps you seek both.


If you have the time, I would recommend that you spend some time in a city or two and some time in the country as well.  Feel free to check out some of the overlooked sites, such as New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, in New Bedford, MA. (nps.gov/nebe), for an authentic, vibrant city experience.  There are many free events here, and it's an extremely affordable place.

Route 12 doesn't have scheduled closings, but has been known to close from time to time during heavy storms or other natural occurrences.  These two sites have a good bit of information on the drive, things to do along the way, and information for up-to-the-minute road information.

Safe travels!
