If you're thinking about ever getting National Park senior lifetime pass...

If you're thinking about getting the National Parks Senior lifetime pass it's going up from $10 to $80 in about 9 days.

I think it can be purchased on the NP website or most National Park entrances.

Price jumps on August 28th. You can purchase a pass at any of the NPS sites such as the Saratoga Battlefield near the Capital District.

That's strange ... because that's where we bought ours ... at the visitor center.

Seems odd with that list - they list both Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt sites as ones that do offer them, but do not list the Martin Van Buren site in Kinderhook at all? You'd think they would offer them as well, but at least list it either yes or no (since that one would be another convenient option for those in the Albany area).

At what age do they consider a person a senior?
