Travel Tips: Finding Free Attractions

Finding Free & Low-cost Attractions When planning a trip, we seek out free attractions or those that charge very low entrance fees. Some of the best attractions we’ve found have been through searching National Park Sites, State Parks, the wacky, fun and free attractions found at Roadside America and museums and zoos we can gain free or reduced admission to with our reciprocal memberships. We’ve discovered that the more money we pay for admission, the higher our expectations are. Sometimes this leads us to be overly critical, which ultimately leads to disappointment, but who can argue with free? When you’re planning to travel with your family, what resource do you use for finding low cost or FREE attractions? Join me today as I link up to Travel Tips Tuesday, hosted by Walkingon Travels and Suitcases and Sippy Cups.

Gotta love those reciprocal memberships! We've used our many times to visit aquariums, gardens, and zoos around the country. I had never heard of Roadside America, but I'll definitely have to check it out :-) Before traveling, I do an internet search for free/low cost activities at my destination and can usually find at least a few fun activities to do.

We are big fans of free stuff to do as well. Often times we just do self-guided walking tours around a city and stumble across the greatest stuff. And don't forget, free National Park day is June 9th this year! Thanks for linking up.

Thanks for letting me know about Point Mallard. We very well might be interested in going to the field trip with you and your group. Could you email me the details @ I assume you are talking about the Medevial that is located in Gwinnett County near Discover Mills mall. How soon would you need a definite answer? Thanks for thinking of us.Blessingsdiane Protection Status
