The Natural State offers a variety of scenic destinations for service members to visit. However, finding the right price or destination for a weekend excursion can be stressful for some. 

That’s where the Information, Tickets and Travel office in the Walters Community Support Center on Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas, comes in. They provide travel options and discounted tickets for local and worldwide attractions. 

“We can help book and plan vacation packages, hotel packages, cruises and flights,” said Andrea Hammock, 19th Force Support Squadron community center programmer. “We also provide tickets for major attractions in the Little Rock area and throughout the U.S.”

Tickets include Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida; Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri; Magic Springs in Hot Springs, Arkansas; and much more. 

From new Airmen to veterans, ITT is free and available to all Team Little Rock. The office can provide travel guidance on restaurants and exciting areas to discover.

“As a student, we’re always working or studying so we might not have time to socialize, but this makes it easier for us to get out and explore the area,” said Airman 1st Class Kevin Ly, 714th Training Squadron C-130J loadmaster apprentice. 

If a ticket is not offered on the ITT ticket list, the staff partners with different offices around the world to acquire specialty discounts and accommodate their customer’s needs. 

“I love helping someone book something and seeing how excited they get, that’s why I do it,” Hammock said. “I love helping the base community.”
