Westgate River Ranch is giving away 1,000 vacations to military.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, Westgate Resorts is honoring U.S. military personnel who have and continue to serve our country by giving away 1,000 free vacations to those military members and their families at the company’s recently renovated property, Westgate River Ranch Resort, a Florida-cowboy themed destination resort and the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi. This is the fourth year in a row that Westgate has honored our nation’s heroes with free vacations.
Eligible service members may call in to 1-800-887-9312 to receive a complimentary three day, two night vacation during the week (Sunday through Thursday) at the Westgate River Ranch Resort located just one hour south of Orlando and one hour west of Tampa. The first 1,000 callers will receive the free stay.
To be eligible, military must have served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and/or The War on Terror. (Service dates of 9/11/2001 through today).
Other past U.S. military members are eligible for the ranch’s military rate, which offers a savings of 25 percent on room rates.
