Not just a song or slogan, “America the Beautiful” is also a pass program offered by the National Parks Service.
The America the Beautiful Land Pass is an all access pass that covers more than 2000 federal recreation sites, including national parks and wildlife refuges, national forests and grasslands, and lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation. Check out the list to see what’s in your area or where you’d like to visit.
The pass offers entrance fees and any standard amenity fees for a driver and all passengers in a passenger vehicle at a per vehicle fee area or up to four adults at sites that charge per person. Children 15 or under are free
The annual pass is available for $80 which is the same price of an annual membership at my local zoo, but can be used for so many more locations making it a frugal deal for vacation plans. The annual pass is available FREE for active duty military and their dependants and there is a FREE access pass for disabled Americans.
Seniors (62 or over) can get a lifetime pass for only $10 (with a $10 processing fee).
What a great way to spend time in nature, see this beautiful country and immerse yourself in our rich history in our National Park Service that is celebrating 97 years!
