Getting older comes with a seriously awesome perk: Discounts. If you’re part of the 55 and over crowd, there are plenty of special deals and discounts available for everything from national parks, to resorts, to zoos. Enjoy the unique benefits of Utah with these 10 great senior discounts!
Utah is known for its abundance of famous national parks. And as a senior citizen, you can access them at a considerable discount. For U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 and over, a Lifetime Senior Pass to all national parks in the United States is $80. An Annual Senior Pass is only $20. These passes cover entrance to the park and standard amenity fees. This is a phenomenal deal, considering that for adults under the age of 62, an annual pass is $80.
The Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City (located just west of Salt Lake City) is a popular destination for diverse cultural events. The Center holds a summer and winter concert series, and its gallery regularly features both well-known and local exhibits. The center’s senior discount is pretty unbeatable. And a life enriched by culture and community? Priceless.
Avid skiers know that skiing isn’t exactly a cheap hobby. Buying skis, bindings, boots, a season pass, and other apparel can really drain the bank account. For older skiers in Utah, however. financial prospects are a bit brighter. At Brighton Resort, for example, a day ski pass is $57, compared to the normal day pass price of $85.
Arctic Circle isn’t a very well-known restaurant outside of the western United States, but we’re glad, because that means we can keep their delicious milkshakes a secret from outsiders. Adults aged 55 and older can benefit from a 15 percent discount.
Heading to the zoo with your children and grandchildren is always fun, but zoos aren’t always just for kids. At Utah’s Hogle Zoo, you’ll have an educational experience, and come away beaming with memories of baby orangutans and polar bears. During both of the zoos seasons (winter and summer) seniors 65 years and older receive a $2 discount off the original, adult admission price.
The Leonardo is a relatively new gallery space in Salt Lake City that is known for mind-boggling exhibitions and an innovative approach to museology and art. Built on the idea that curiosity allows us to discover our inner genius, the museum makes for a fun afternoon or evening out on the town. Seniors (adults 65 and older) benefit from a $2 discount off the normal adult admission price.
From Nefertiti to Michelle Obama the impact of women on our world is incalculable. To help shed light on these incredible women throughout history, our newest exhibit WOMAN/WOMEN is now open! This exhibit features work by @kickingthebox, @libertyblake, and Jann Haworth as well as the film 50/50, directed by @tiffanyshlain.
This is the Place Heritage Park puts Utah history in live action. The park is a recreation of Utah’s Mormon pioneers’ first settlement, and features an array of original buildings as well as live actors to entertain and inform. The park is home to a variety of events throughout the year, as well as a fun place to spend time with friends and family. For seniors, admission is only $4.95.

Only one of many Utah hotels that offers discounts to AARP members, Treasure Mountain Inn makes for a nice, no-fuss, affordable, Park City vacation. The rooms are spacious, classically decorated, and relaxing. If you book through Expedia with your AARP membership, you’ll receive a $50 discount.
Getting around Utah is easier than ever before, and although public transportation in the state certainly isn’t perfect, it is easy to use and helps you to be environmentally conscious. Seniors have extra incentive to take advantage of UTA services such as the FrontRunner, given that all of their public transportation rates are significantly reduced. For a month-long premium pass (featuring access to all forms of Utah public transport), a senior pass is $99, as compared with $198.
The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium frequently gives special discounts to AARP members, but when it doesn’t, the senior ticket is still $3 off the normal, adult admission price. This aquarium is not your run-of-the-mill aquarium. Not only was it built within the past ten years, but this year, it’s home to a group of adorable sloths.
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is excited to announce our plans to build a Science Learning Campus! This expansion will be located directly south of our current location and will include state-of-the-art classrooms, science Summer Camp programs, high-tech laboratories, new animal exhibits and science interactive exhibits, a five story rainforest habitat, and more.
