Summertime can either be a couple of months in which you connect with your kids and make memories or it can be wasted time spent in front of screens and sleeping in. There are so many options to have fun this summer without draining your bank account! Check out these cheap and free summer activities:
Get into Nature
No matter how populated your town is, there are sure to be hiking paths and parks that you have never explored. We are often the worst at exploring the places nearest to us so go ahead and google your town’s parks and trails! If you are feeling really adventurous, you and your family could create some memories by going camping! There are plenty of free or cheap places in which to do so!
Local libraries, park districts, and art associations are just a few examples of organizations that often offer free or reduced cost activities for the whole family. Libraries often have activities for toddlers through adults and a lot of them are free! Concerts in the park are popular in the summer and even if you are not a fan of the music, being outside with your family can be so refreshing!
Fun at Festivals
Although there are plenty of activities at local festivals and fairs that could end up costing you an arm and a leg, there are a few ideas that will cost you very little, if at all. Often there are free entertainment shows the whole family will love. From jugglers to music and even talent shows, you never know what your family might find! Just walking around the festival and seeing what that town has to offer is great entertainment.
There are so many ideas out there for cheap and free summer activities. Don’t end the summer with regrets or an empty pocket book! Create memories today that will last far beyond the summer heat.
