Wildlife Refuges Offer Cheap Family Fun

If you’re looking for cheap family fun this summer, national wildlife refuges are full of free or low-cost outdoor summer adventures.

There’s a national wildlife refuge within an hour’s drive of most major U.S. cities where you can hike, fish, go bird watching or just enjoy a quiet escape from your daily life.

Some refuges hold special events during the summer, like lighthouse tours or bike rides through the refuge to learn about the animals that live there.

Find the closest national wildlife refuge to you and learn about special events.
