Free, discounted passes ease travel expenses – Monroe Evening News | Gmx Pharm

With prices rising, free and discounted tickets can help reduce travel expenses.

Several options are available, including the Every Kid Outdoors Pass, America the Beautiful National Park Pass, and the Michigan Activity Pass.

Every Kid Outdoors Pass

The Gawel family of Monroe visited several national parks with the Every Kid Outdoors Pass offered by the National Park Service.

The program saved the family about $200 in admission fees. The free ticket is available to all fourth graders.

Steve and Laura Gawel and their children Alex, 16, and Bekah, 11, learned about the Every Kid Outdoors Pass years ago but were eligible again last summer when Bekah was in fourth grade.

“I first heard about it when my son was in sixth grade. When we were looking for a family vacation a few years later, I remembered the program and we looked for more information,” said Laura. “Applying for the program was really easy.”
