Next time you go on vacation (or even in your own city) make a list of activities that are free or really cheap so you will have some activities to choose from that won't break the bank. For example, the Lincoln Park Zoo is Chicago is wonderful--and free! All of the Smithsonian Museums and Zoo are free in Washington DC, the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles is free, and even in smaller towns you can often find free things to do like library activities, free community events, and hiking/taking a tour of the town.

Free Stuff to Do
Today we visited the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden. We are working our way through the Las Vegas list I put up last month and have already done more than a dozen activities. Since there are literally a thousand things on the list, and since I am trying to do a no-spend year, we are pretty much hitting up as many free activities as possible and in Las Vegas there are hundreds of free things to do so we should be set for a while. I think many cities are similar--lots of free things to do but you have to look for them because the highly advertised things need to make money (at least to pay for the advertising!).
