I’ve been a military spouse for eight years. My family has moved frequently and my husband has done various tours of duty overseas. As challenging as deployments are we always try to look for the light at end of the tunnel. Our light at the end of that tunnel is knowing that when my spouse returns we are headed on vacation to spend some much needed family time.
In traveling I make sure to look for budget friendly options so that we can splurge elsewhere (food, souvenirs ). My family recently took a trip to Orlando, Florida in which we visited all the well known attractions there. We enjoyed various local cuisine as well as our fair share of chain options because everyone knows we purposely forget to monitor calories while vacationing. Because my kids are older they truly were able to enjoy the theme parks and spectacular shows that we were able to see. It was great to finally not have to take turns monitoring the stroller and riding on all the thrill rides together.
However after a long day one of the main things we knew we needed was comfort. My children are at the age where everyone having their own space is not a luxury but a necessity. It’s what keeps “the vacation” a vacation. I had booked our stay at the Best Western Orlando Gateway. We enjoyed the comforts of their studio suites which was extremely spacious and included all the comforts of home. After a long day of what equaled miles of walking, coming back to a clean spacious room was what we all needed. It also helped that this military family got to enjoy a suite without breaking our pockets, which isn’t always the easiest thing to do when planning a vacation.
Just For Military
As a military spouse lifestyle blogger I really enjoy finding hotels and attractions that offer military promotions. Our service members sacrifice and give so much of their time. In honor of Veteran’s Day tomorrow it’s a pleasure for me to remind our military personnel that Best Western has a special program just for them known as Best Western Service Rewards. With the BW Service Rewards program qualifying military personnel can not only save 10% when booking a stay at Best Western Hotels but earn 10 points for every U.S. dollar spent. You can use these points for FREE stays and much more. You also get the honor of being upgraded (automatically) to Elite status when you join so earning points is much faster. Signing up is free and they will give you 250 FREE starter points just for doing so. You can learn more details at: http://www.bwmilitary.com.
