Veteran's Day in New England

Yesterday, our country took time out to honor our veterans, and I hope you were able to participate in some of the special Veteran’s Day activities that took place here in New England.

Wherever our veterans call home, there’s still time to enjoy many of the other ways our country wants to say “Thank you” to them:

Many national parks and zoos are offering discounts or free admission.

The same is true of theme parks, museums, and local attractions such as Knott’s Berry Farm and Newport Aquarium.

Of course, everyone is able to take advantage of all of the Veteran’s Day sales out there, and have a ball bargain-hunting.

Ever the foodie, I have to mention that there are scores of restaurants where veterans can dine for free today (Veteran’s Day-Observed).

If you have the day off, enjoy the end of a lovely long weekend, and take a moment to remember the veterans who made it possible.
