Military Discounts Hampton Roads/Coastal Virginia

 20 Businesses offering Military Discounts

from militarydiscounts.com:

The Hampton Roads area in Virginia, which includes Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, is home to several military installations. And it’s not hard to find local and regional businesses and attractions that offer military discounts in this area highly populated with military families. 
Whether you live in Hampton Roads or you’re just visiting, the following are 20 military discounts to check into while you’re here. Don’t forget your military ID!

Keep in mind that MWR Information, Tickets and Tours (ITT) offices offer discounted tickets to parks, museums, movie theaters, and concerts. So before purchasing tickets either online or on location to local attractions, take the time to call or visit an ITT office at any base in the area (like NAS OceanaNaval Station Norfolk, and JEB Little Creek-Fort Story).  For instance, you can get season passes to Ocean Breeze Water Park (see below) for cheaper prices than you would get at the park itself, which only offers a military discount on daily admission tickets.

1. Busch Gardens
