Bed & Breakfasts

If you love staying at B&Bs, then you're in for a wonderful treat because many establishments are offering a free night's stay on Veterans Day and/or discounts and special packages at various times during the year. The following two Web sites can help you locate a participating B&B:

  • Through the B&Bs For Vets program, hundreds of Inns and B&Bs across the United States and Canada are offering a free night's stay on November 11, 2012 to anyone who has served in the U.S. military along with an accompanying guest. If this is an offer you'd like to utilize, don't delay as space at participating B&Bs is limited and rooms are available on first-come-first-served basis.

Some of the establishments offer discounts exclusively for Veterans Day, whereas others extend special offers throughout the year. For your convenience the list is categorized by state and is very easy to maneuver.
