Today's headline resource is the ITT/Travel office on base. There is one of these on every Marine base, and Lejeune's is in the shopping center with the PX and Commissary. I knew they offered discount packages for vacations, especially cruises and Disney World. There are also packages for trips to New York city and throughout the East Coast. They also offer discounted airfare. But to be honest, the one time I needed airfare to Florida, the quote I got from ITT was higher than the tickets I found on sites like Expedia and Hotwire, so do shop around.
But this week I learned something new. ITT also has discount tickets to many LOCAL attractions. For example, the Aquarium doesn't sell military discount tickets at their ticket window. But you can pick up discounted tickets at ITT before you go to the Aquarium. They have discounted movie tickets to use out in town, dinner theater tickets for Wilmington, and discounts for various local shows and some sporting events. So if you are looking for a good family or date night activity, ITT might be a good place to start your search! Their website is: http://www.mccslejeune.com/itt/index.html
