Veterans' Day, the holiday on which we honor those who've sacrificed so much for us--unless we choose to sacrifice the holiday itself in exchange for getting off the day after Thanksgiving. Honor, duty and freedom are great, but they won't get you 25 percent off at early bird specials.
Here are some area venues that are honoring our veterans--mostly through free admission.
700 Central Ave.
11:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
Admission for live racing and simulcast is free for all veterans and active-duty military members with a military ID.
829 W. Main St.
9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Admission is free for all veterans and military members.
Mammoth Cave, Cave City
Visit its website
for tour times
While national parks should always be free for veterans and active-duty military members, that ain't the case. In the meantime, vets and military members can take advantage of free tours of Mammoth Cave this Wednesday.
