America the Beautiful park passes increase in price
By the time September 2017 rolls around one cost for senior citizens will increase by 800%. The lifetime America the Beautiful (ATB) passes for Seniors (ages 62 and older) will increase from $10 to $80 on August 28th, 2017.
All $10 lifetime passes purchased BEFORE August 28th will be grandfathered in and still accepted as lifetime passes.
That’s simply too steep for many of us old folks on fixed budgets. So, $20 Annual Senior passes will also be available for purchase.
The ATB Senior Pass grants the owner free access to all Army Corps Day Use parks at Lake Sidney Lanier, and half-off all nights of camping at Army Corps Campgrounds.
Senior citizens can pay $5/day to visit US Army Corps of Engineers sites on Lake Lanier — or they can get a LIFETIME pass for $10, but not for long.
If you’re a senior, or if you know a senior who doesn’t already have this pass, come to the Corps’ main office at 1050 Buford Dam Rd. Buford, GA 30518. They’ll be selling passes from 9 AM to 3 PM, Monday thru Friday.
Please Note: August 27th is a Sunday, so the last day to save $70 will be Friday, August 25th.
