With a major kick off on Labor Day weekend, guests can enjoy a family-friendly environment complete with tribute events, including a Heroes Welcome 5k and post-race celebration; an All-American BBQ; traditional family-focused games and contests; live concert by country artist and host of the television series Brotherhood Outdoors, Daniel Lee Martin; and fireworks display over the Atlantic Ocean. The Resort has also announced the return of kid favorite, Touch-A-Truck, and a Sunset Heroes Tribute around the Resort’s popular Fire Pit.

Guests not staying during Labor Day Weekend, can enjoy a weekly Heroes in Action photo tribute ceremony, which takes place every Saturday evening around the Fire Pit. This year’s enhanced tribute allows guests to submit images to be featured in the Tribute as well as on resort TVs at locations throughout the property. In addition to the images provided by guests, the presentation features iconic imagery followed by a lighting ceremony as a tribute to all fallen heroes and those currently in action.

Running August 19 through November 26, 2013, resort buy aciphex online rates start at just $109, and include special discounts on resort activities and a series of star-spangled tribute events. A portion of proceeds of each room booked will benefit Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, who is partnering with the resort for the fourth year in a row.

While the $109 starting rate is limited to American heroes, all resort guests can receive 20 percent off the best available rate by making a donation of $2 to supported foundations.
