If you are seeking some family fun-time but just don't have the money to spend, find out what is available in your community. Being creative accompanied with your local community activity guide can equate to free fun for you and your loved ones! Below are some suggestions for having fun with your family with minimal or no spending.

Finding things to do in your community
It is simple to spend significant money for entertaining. But nothing is going to be fun if you don't have money left over for paying your bills or putting food on the table. The best place to learn about what there is to do in your area is to visit your local chamber of commerce and/or city tourism bureau. They will definitely be able to provide you with a variety of free and low-cost activities.

Local community pools
Your local pool is an excellent place for keeping cool during the summer months. Price will depend on where you live, what day of week it is and whether it is a holiday (Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day) and will likely cost only a few dollars per visit. It is important to note that almost every community pool will offer 'family season passes' for at major discounts compared to cost of daily visits. Getting a season pass is a good idea if you plan on taking the family to the local pool regularly. On the downside, if you have guests that are from another area (you will be asked to show idea proving you live locally whenever visiting a community pool) they will have to pay higher costs than those that are from the community.

Nowadays, most YMCAs offer top quality amenities including gyms for working out, swimming pools, basketball courts, children camps/activities, etc.. Family rates are available and cost will be based on a sliding scale depending on your income.

Community centers
Your local community center will likely offer a variety of different things to do for everyone in your family that are either free or at little cost; i.e. exercise programs, arts and crafts, trips to the park, dance classes and a whole lot more! Community centers are an excellent place for meeting people in the event that you are new to your area and don't have any friends.

In addition to being a great place for kids to play and run around, area parks are a really nice to go for a jog and enjoy the beautiful weather. And best of all, parks are 100% free. A good idea would be to look online for special community events. During the summer there may be concerts. Winter months may showcase indoor craft fairs, etc..

Getting your kids into reading at an early age is a very good idea. In addition to books, libraries now offer music CDs and DVD movies for borrowing. The library is always free....unless you are late on a return or even worse, lose whatever you have checked out.

Your own backyard
Having a family camping trip in your yard! This will be a fun activity and likely a family bonding experience. Do some star gazing and listen to all the night sounds.

Go online and search for games to play in your backyard. Depending on your age, you will be able to pass down outdoor games you played as a kid, before the advancement of video games and the Internet. Nowadays kids do not get enough exercise outdoors and have no clue how to play games like 'manhunt', 'red rover', 'kick the can', etc..
