Each of us deserves to have some fun in summer, especially if you are still a kid at heart. As I am always on a budget, I set particular amount of money aside every month for outdoor activities. Here are some things you can easily do in summer.
Movies in the Park
Grab some lawn chairs and blankets and go to the park to watch a movie. Usually, they are free or have very low admission fee. You can also use the opportunity to enjoy an adult beverage, as most venues allow visitors to bring their own booze if they drink responsibly.
Use your chance to save much money by skipping a restaurant and hosting a BBQ in your backyard. Gather your friends and make a kind of friendly competition. It is a great opportunity to have some quality time with your loved ones and try a ton of tasty grilled food. You can also start an annual tradition of choosing the winner who cooks the best barbeque.
Get on the Water
It is amazing if you have a boat or one of your friends has one. Even if none of you does, do not despair. A lot of marinas offer powerboats and sailboats for rent. Check the Boatbound website which will help you find boat rentals in your zipcode. Grab friends and split the cost to save some money.
It is usually cheap. If you do not have an inner tube or floaty device, you can rent it. If you would like to go more than several times, check out Target for deals and bring your own. This will help you save some money in the long run. Have doubts about where to go? Visit Rivertubing website to find the tubing areas next to you.
Go to a State Park
Would you like to visit a new park that you have not seen before? Parks are often good sources for rest, but some of them charge an entrance fee. However, you can consider the nationally planned fee free dates to save some money on visiting one of such places.
Free Museum Day
In many cities, there are free museum days during summer, so you should definitely use this opportunity to visit one of your local museums, especially if you have not done it before. Some of them offer absolutely free entrance, while some provide very cheap tickets on particular days. Check the events plan for the summer in your city to know more.
There are so many fun activities in summer, and you can find something suitable even if you are on a budget. Some of them are absolutely free or cost not much money so that almost everyone can afford them. All you have to do is to read some local paper or search online for fun and cheap activities in your area. Spend some time on research and you will find something fun and affordable eventually.
