Did you know there are military resorts all over the world that offer great discounts on lodging, tickets to local sights and tours to service members, retirees and their families? Locations include Seward, Alaska; Houston Texas; Destin, Florida; Walt Disney World, Florida; Cape Cod, Massachusetts; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Hawaii, Germany, Japan, and Korea, to name a few. These resorts are available to you regardless of service affiliation.
Resorts are very popular and fill quickly; however, most allow you to book rooms up to 365 days in advance, and you can usually reserve additional rooms for family members who wouldn't normally qualify for MWR benefits, if you are planning a vacation together.
These facilities are world class, and rival the best civilian resorts out there. For more information on Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) resorts and more, check out www.armymwr.com/travel/recreationcenters
