Living in Florida has its perks. There’s great weather, beautiful beaches and Senior Discounts at many of the area attractions.
We gathered a list together from sites like orlandoseniordiscount.com, senioradvisor.com and seniorcitizendiscountlist.org that lays out area attractions, businesses and restaurants that give seniors a discount.
We do suggest however that you call wherever you’re going to verify the discount. Also, if you’re a member of the military (thank you for your service) you may get a bigger or additional discount. AAA members may also get additional discounts.
Do you know of any not on our list? Please contact us and we’ll add them here and also let the folks from the other sites know as well.
