Great list. I forget about things like our local summer concert series. Thanks for the reminder and for some new ideas.

Great list! Love your site! :-)

I have used many of those ideas for summer fun myself. People don't realize how much free stuff there is to do during the summer.

We currently live in the Valley of the Sun here in Arizona, but I sure do miss 'normal' seasons where summer means being out and about! Great list... too bad we're going into hibernation at this time! :{ I can't wait until we're 'normal' again, lol!

Thanks for posting; it was fun visiting you for the first time! Have a wonderful week!

What a GREAT reminder to keep an eye out for all the free or low cost fun to be had. I believe my favourite is Canada Day's fireworks. [0= Thank you for this GREAT contribution to TT.

We love to visit the library in the summertime. The kids can check out books they are interested in, such as history or science topics, and learn on their own.

What a great list. I love free activities during the summer. You spend so much money during the school year with various things, it is nice to have a break on the pocketbook!

Thanks for commenting on my Nature Journal article :) It is a fun activity & hey besides the notebook, it is free as well, lol.
