ORLANDO, FL (November 12, 2013) — For the third year in a row, Westgate proudly announced its continuing commitment to our men and women in uniform by giving away 1,000 three day, two night stays to military personnel involved in either Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, or the War on Terror.
This special, limited-time Military Appreciation Offer, allowed these men and women to book a complimentary weekday stay at the newly reopened and revamped Westgate River Ranch Resort in River Ranch, Florida. The first 1,000 military personnel who called in on Friday, November 8th, 2013 were to receive the complimentary stay.
“Being a veteran myself, I am extremely proud of the young men and women who continue our great American tradition of service,” said David A. Siegel, Westgate Resorts founder and CEO, “Westgate is incredibly proud of our national heroes and we look forward to serving them at Westgate River Ranch Resort and Dude Ranch.”
Our veterans will have an opportunity to explore the various accommodations options available at Westgate River Ranch. These will include their choice from a standard lodge suite, lodge guest room, and a deluxe lodge suite, and the all-new “glamping”, or glamorous camping, tents. All indoor accommodations come equipped with microwaves, mini fridge, coffee maker, wet bar, and brand new 51″ flat-screen television sets to unwind after a long and eventful day. Not to be outdone, the glamping tents are not without the comforts of home. They come fully-furnished, equipped with mini fridge, microwaves, air conditioning, private bathrooms, and electrical outlets for any additional electronics brought from home.
A whole slew of activities await guests to River Ranch. Guests may take a 45-minute airboat ride from our full-service marina and traverse the Kissimmee River to view native Floridian wildlife. They may also experience swamp buggy rides through River Ranch’s wood trail. Or perhaps ride a mechanical bull, climb a 30-foot rock wall, play putt-putt golf, and ride a 300-foot zip line in the resort’s all new Adventure Park. For those looking to pick up a new skill, they may choose to learn to shoot a shotgun at the trap and skeet range or shoot a bow and arrow at our archery range. Team-member instructed riding lessons are also available to those who want to “get back into the saddle” or are looking to learn to ride for the first time. Golfers will enjoy a 9-hole executive golf course that winds through scenic pastures of buffalo and longhorn cattle. There’s even a weekly rodeo every Saturday night, giving guests an opportunity to see real cowboys in an action-packed show sure to get the adrenaline pumping. No matter what form or fit, there’s an activity for everyone at Westgate River Ranch.
