Updated: Westgate just announced they are now giving away 3,500 FREE  (instead of original 2,500) vacations to military via their official Twitter account.


I am bias to vacationing in Florida and love everything about it. I think it’s a combination of it always being close by pretty much every military base we were ever at, except Hawaii. It has a good combination of touristy and off the beaten path for those who want one or the other, or both!


Next week I’m heading to Florida next week to attend the Inc 5000 Conference and share some live travel reviews with you  (in our Military Discount Travel series). You can imagine why I was excited to receive word again that Westgate Resorts is honoring the troops again with their annual free vacation giveaway. And, this year the number has increased to 2500 vacations. Additionally those who don’t want to go to Florida will have the choice to vacation at resorts in Branson, Missouri and Las Vegas!
