Summer is right around the corner and for some that means planning vacations and/or activities for the whole family. As you begin to plan, you may be looking for some budget-friendly ideas that will keep the whole family entertained. Let’s get into a few ideas.
Check out your city’s tourism website for upcoming events in your area. You may be able to set filters to find specific types of events, dates, times, etc, and then narrow down based on what fits within your budget. Local events can be more affordable as you live nearby and likely will not have the added expense of airfare, rental car, hotel, etc. Some of these local events may even have free admission.
You could also check out your local community pool options. Typically, the day rates are affordable, and this could be a fun option for kids as well as keeping everyone cool on a hot summer day. Most community pools also offer swimming lessons or aquatic classes and those may be activities that would interest some of your family members.
If you are looking to get out of town for a weekend or a longer trip, consider planning in advance and traveling not over a holiday weekend. Generally, when you book your vacations months in advance and not during a holiday you may get a better rate. Once you know where you will be traveling to you could check out Groupon for deals on hotels and/or activities in that area.
Renting kayaks or boats at a local lake or river is a fantastic and budget-friendly activity for the whole family. With affordable rental options, this adventure allows you to create lasting memories while enjoying the serenity of the picturesque surroundings.
Keeping your family entertained during the summer does not mean you have to blow your budget. Instead plan vacations in advance or simply keep activities local and utilize your community parks, pools, and beaches.
