Summer Fun on a Budget

Summer is almost here—and you probably have a list of things you want to do and places you want to see. These tips will help you save money while having fun.

  • If you plan to take a summer road trip, make sure to check the cheapest gas prices while traveling.
  • Visit one of the 394 parks in the National Park System, like the Grand Canyon or Yosemite. National parks are an economical way to explore since most are free. On June 21, 2011, all of the parks offer free admission.
  • Find local events to save money. Search USA.gov for your city name and “summer” to find community events and programs in your area.
