Military personnel can visit aquarium for free

U.S. military personnel are being given VIP treatment this weekend at the Newport Aquarium.

The offer is available to active and retired military as well as reservists.

The aquarium is offering free admission with military identification at the ticket window. Four additional family members can get the regular military discount of $3 off adult tickets and $2 off children's tickets. The offer runs Saturday through Tuesday.

There's also a free breakfast event for veterans on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. EST with the purchase of a full-priced ticket. Registration is required, and reservations can be made at (859) 815-1471.

The Ride the Ducks tours are offering half-priced admission Thursday through Sunday for veterans and military personnel, with discounts available for additional family members.

Humana is sponsoring the aquarium's Veterans Weekend.
