Ways To Find Free Family Outings

By Colby Brister

The season of summer, is a great time for family outings as it gives great weather and gives you many choices to chose from. Although summer provides great choices, it also can be expensive and when you are on a tight budget it maybe difficult to find an outing for you and your family to do and one that you can afford. You don’t need to do that expensive holiday just so that you can spend time with your family, you can always do that within your own community. Having family outings in your local area, can be affordable and you can save money on gas; these are a few ideas on how you can find a free outing in your local area.

Look At Your Local Newspaper

Look and check the local newspaper, as you should be able to see many events that are being held in the local area, like a festival or a school fair. Check the paper on a Saturday, and look at the section of the classifieds, because it should give you a list of local events for the week ahead. A few local newspapers will provide you with a society section (which is a separate section from the newspaper) and this section maybe able to offer you with some ideas. When you look through the paper you maybe surprised to see how much the town has to offer that wont cost you a lot of money at all.

Pop Down To Your Community Center

Many towns will have a community center, (whether it is a large or small town) that are responsible for its charity organizations or the local sport teams. If you have one in your area, go past and see one of their calendars as they will be able to give you all the dates for the local events for the summer period. They should have events like, a sporting activity, or a craft show and many others that you can do and share with your family at minimal cost.

Visit Your Local Website

Majority of towns have a local website nowadays, which will be of a great help to you to find some local events that you and your family enjoy. If you are unaware of what the website is, type in your town names in a search engine, like yahoo, or google and it should be able to give you what you need. The other option is to phone the local center and ask for the web address of your town. When you visit the website, look and find a calendar as they can give you dates of events that are coming up in the near future that you and your family can have fun doing.

Have An Idea Of What You Are Looking For

See if your local community provides you with events such as movie night at the park for families, concerts, a charity event, or even a magic show. Check out what they have to offer as in a smaller gathering, for example a cooking class or a tennis game. If you are part of larger town the community may organize fireworks, or for someone to come and put on a show for the children, they also may offer a cost affordable carnival that provides you with games, and a barbecue for everyone to attend. When looking for an event make sure they are of interest to yourself and the family, however give something new a go; just because you think it will be uninteresting to the family it could be the event that you and your family need.
