Veteran’s Day is a day to honor the dedicated women and men who put on the uniform of the armed services and place their loyalty to their country above their lives. Maryland, in particular, is a state blessed with an abundance of military personnel, owing to several local military bases. And so, at this time of year, local businesses like to honor these folks with discounts and benefits. Here are several of the best to be found in the Baltimore area.
B&O Railroad Museum
901 W. Pratt St.
Baltimore, MD 21223
(410) 752-2490

The B&O Railroad Museum is a standard of the Baltimore area, representing the railroad industry which founded the economy upon which Baltimore was based. But the museum isn’t just a tired recital of historical information, it is a constantly updated and re-vitalized venue which continually has fresh events and displays; even if you aren’t a train lover, B&O will make you one. This Veteran’s day, B&O is offering free admission to all military personnel and their families, so stop on by and see what it has to offer!
