OTHER DISCOUNTS AND DEALS
Through the B&B’s for Vets program Inns and B&B’s throughout North America will open their doors to active and retired military and vets and one guest and say thank you for your service by offering a free room to those who’ve served in the military on Sunday, November 11, 2012. However, rooms are offered on a space available basis, and there are far more deserving vets than B&B space allows. Click here to learn more and find a participating B&B.
