8 Fun Things to Do This Summer on a Budget

Summer is almost officially here, but you don’t need a bunch of cash to have fun. Here are 10 fun things to do this summer on a budget.

  1. Go for some time in the water. Visit a lake for swimming and relaxing at the sandy beaches or drop by the pool for a way to stay cool this summer.
  2. Plan an Urban Grab your bestie or a group together for an “amazing-race” type of scavenger hunt.
  3. Get out to the Dive-In movies. (ß Yeah, that’s not a typo!) Forest Park Pool has monthly outdoor movie showings all summer long. Take a dip while you watch!
  4. Soak up a summer concert or two. Every Friday in June, Sunset Sessions in the Grove brings local musicians from 6pm—8pm for your listening pleasure at no cost to you.
  5. Hit a bike trail. Take advantage of the 40-mile long bike trails of Trinity Trails, and enjoy some of nature’s finest offerings!
  6. Enjoy some cool treats. Whether you are a fan of Ice Cream, Frozen Custard or popsicles—cool off with a sweet treat.
  7. Visit the library. There are free exhibits throughout the summer to check out while taking a break from the heat.
  8. Have a picnic in the park. A picnic at the Airfield Falls Park and a walk along the Trinity Trails at the Airfield Falls is a great way to enjoy a fun summer day.

Have fun, be safe and enjoy! <3
