    Parades in both Blue Ridge and Ellijay with free breakfasts and usually lunch. Many restaurants offer some type of deals.

    This website, seems to have covered all the basis for the vets and ensures that they are not forgotten about, not that we should 

    You have obviously researched this quite well and detailed the events and what goes on with each, so that anyone attending will have a clearly defined preset picture of what to expect and to make it more enjoyable

    Some great veterans day deals you’ve uncovered here!

    My father in law lives in Tampa Bay (we live in the UK now)  but tends to get out to the Georgia mountains for this holiday.

    I know the Hooters deal will definitely be a winner with him!

    The US national forests sounds great as well, do you know how easy it is to walk around there, as he has a bit of a bad leg now!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Nate, Each National Forest will have different types of access and trails. Make sure to check with each forest for those details before your Father-in-law visits so you’ll know exactly what to expect and be prepared!

    Getting some free threat on this veteran day is a nice thing. The Georgia Mountain is really blessed with some fine adventures to go with. This veteran day would be a day to get some fun time with your family and make new friends in the process. I live in the United state and this is my first time having a feeling of going for such fun experience in a while. Hopefully, there will be free time for me.

    • Alyce says:

      There are certainly a lot of great ways to enjoy the Georgia mountains, and it’s great that the vets get a special deal on Veterans Day!

  5. Carmen says:

    Nice for you to present (free) Veterans Day offers. It is admirable that you mark the veterans’ day with these wonderful offers. I appreciate the fact that several restaurants have joined, offering a free meal. It is also praiseworthy that there are free days for their families as well as the 25% reduction throughout the year.

    • Alyce says:

      It is definitely nice to see that there are a number of places who are honoring vets with free offers in the Georgia mountains on Veterans Day!

    First off I just have to mention that the layout of the site is very pleasing. Onto the article. I travel to GA a lot with my older friend who is a Vet and this guide seems to be the perfect ticket to what I and my friends can go do in GA. After learning of the deals it sounds really cool and more exciting to travel in the area. Keep up the good work.
