The weather’s getting warmer and that means more activities — many of them free — you can enjoy outdoors with your family.
Attend a fireworks show. Most occur on or around the 4th of July. You may catch an occasional show at a local event. These shows are usually free.
Take a trip to a public beach. You can usually go to public beaches for free. Bring lunch or dinner and make a day of it.
Free movies or concerts in the park. Communities often have free movies or concerts at a local park. The movies and concerts are free of charge, and there usually are concessions selling drinks and snacks at reduced prices — or you could pack small bites from home.
Take an art walk. There’s no admission fee. Galleries do this to promote themselves. These are low-key events, often on weeknights. Combine them with an inexpensive dinner out for an affordable outing.
