This weekend Dan traveled around, determined to find for fun things to do for under $100.
Why not head outdoors to a National Park? Get a year-long pass for fifty dollars into any National park in the country. Just visit www.nps.gov for more information. Here's what you get with your National Park Pass:
- Admission into any National Park requiring an entry fee.
- Admission for spouse, parents and children under the same pass.
- Admission for you and any accompanying passengers in your single, private, non-commercial vehicle.
The best part about purchasing your pass is that more than 80% of the funds go right back into the National Parks vital projects fund. Go directly to http://buy.nationalparks.org to buy your pass today.
If you like bargains, like Dan does log onto www.frugalshopper.com for helpful shopping tips and links to online auctions.
Need help balancing your spending habits? Visit www.betterbudgeting.com for free money saving tips.
If you're looking for a thrift store or Flea Market in your area just log onto www.fleamarketguide.com for a nationwide location guide.
And remember, everything is negotiable so haggle whenever possible!
Why not learn to make your own Henna tattoo? They're great to experiment with because they're temporary.
If you've got an artistic side like Dan does go to www.hennapage.com for more details on henna recipes and how tos. For even more information on becoming a professional Henna tattoo artist, go to www.tattoo-me.com/artistinfo.htm.
Why not get outdoors this summer and listen to some music?
Concerts in the park are happening everywhere as well as amphitheater concerts all around the country. Here are two links with summer music festival guides: Visit the National Public Radio website or go directly to the schedule.
If you're in Austin, Texas, check out the Austini Reggae Festival. For details log on to http://austinreggaefestival.blogspot.com
If you're planning on traveling throughout the country or internationally, here is a traveler's guide to music festivals: www.digitaldiscounts.com/music.html.
Get out to the races! If you are a horse race lover but don't necessarily want to gamble, check out some of the country's best thoroughbreds during morning exercises.
Most racetracks don't charge an admission and some even offer bargain buffets and tours of the stables! Visit: www.equineinfo.com/horseracing/racetrack.htm or visit Wikipedia.
Here's a final idea for you this weekend, get in touch with your artistic side. Just log onto www.artclassdirectory.com to find out more.
