Looking for Military Discounts?

There should be military discounts. After all, there is nothing more heroic than serving in the American military.

Thankfully, there are many places which don't just claim to support our military, but actually put their money with their mouths are (so to speak), offering active duty and retired military and their families, as well as veterans, discounts on entertainment and travel.

So I've made this special page dedicated to helping military members find the discounts they deserve. Here's what I found.

Free B&B Stay for Vets Veteran's Day Weekend

The Military Welcome Center at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Here's a little "thank you" for veterans: Select B&B's nationwide are offering veterans a free night on Veteran's Day, November 11.

Go to www.BnBfinder.com (select "Specials" and then "Salute our Heroes" in the drop down box) for a complete list of inns and B&Bs in North America participating in the program. But you'd better do it quickly: the free rooms will fill up fast!

And if you want to save a little extra, take advantage of free admission Veteran's Day Weekend at more than 100 national parks. Click here for details on what days you can get in National Parks for free.
