9. Last-Minute Travel Tip #9: Explore National Parks
Our national parks are our greatest national treasure — and they're free for seniors! Yes, if you're 62 or over, you get in for free to all the national parks. Getting outdoors and enjoying nature is a wonderful way to get away from it all. You can lose yourself in the magnitude and beauty of places like the Grand Canyon, the Everglades, the Carlsbad Caverns, or Sequoia National Park. Go here for the full listing.

Of course, going during the off season will make traveling to get there, as well as accommodations, less expensive. Be sure to check for the best prices online, and consider a road trip to save on airfare.
