This week Tracy's Frugal Family Fun for Less post has some great advice for those of you looking for frugal family activities in your area.
Summertime is a great time to find free events for the whole family. In addition to the resources Tracy has listed for finding those great free events in your area, you may want to look around online for even more freebies. I would suggest that you check the following:
- Local TV & Radio Stations or Newspapers — check for an online community calendar that will feature some free events
- Bookstores & Libraries — often have free events, especially for kids
- National & State Parks — often have free nature programs perfect for families
- Credit Card & Banking "Perks" - Some banks or credit cards will offer freebies so check your cardholder agreement! (For example, Bank of America cardholders can get free admission to a number of museums on the first weekend of every month.)
Be creative and you may just find some great free events in your area!
