More (Cheap and Free) Summer Fun!

More (Cheap and Free) Summer Fun!

I spotted a great article in the June issue of Woman’s Day for saving on Summer fun.  In the spirit of my recent staycation post, I thought I’d share the ideas with readers!

Visit a National Park

  • Many have free or cheap ($3) admission
  • Check for a park near you at

Go Bowling!

  • Check to see if the Kids Bowl Free program is in your area
  • In Erie, check the “Save Around Erie” book for some great BOGO deals
  • Since kids usually take FOREVER to bowl, this activity could last all afternoon!

Go Camping!

  • I think I mentioned checking out before, but you can also head to to find a great site.
  • Don’t forget, June 23rd is the official celebration for the Great American Campout!  Start planning now!

Festivals of Fun

  • Erie is FULL of festivals in the Summer, but you might want to take a road trip and check out something new.
  • National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, NY is September 1st-2nd (not quite summer, but worth it still!)
  • Hamburger Festival in Akron, OH is August 18th-19th.
  • Find one that you’re excited about!

More! More! More!

    We love going to the state park and hiking, swimming, or playing in the creek.
