Summer Fun Savings

It’s hard to believe that school is almost over! Unfortunately Florida weather is not nearly as conducive to fun, outdoor play as where I grew up. I know that the pool is about the only activity I want to do in this heat!

But, fortunately there are plenty of free or inexpensive options.

Free or CheapMovies
Palm Beach Gardens, the Downtown Mall
Phoenix Theater/Lake Worth 8 in Lake Worth (scroll down to select your theater)
Cobb Theater in Jupiter
Muvico (various locations)
Regal in Royal Palm Beach (these are $1 this year)
Cinemark in Boynton Beach (purchase 10 in advance for $5 or $1 per movie at door)

Free Bowling
Kids Bowl Free
AMF Bowling

Free Water Parks
Catherine Strong Splash Park, Delray Beach, Florida
John Prince Park, Lake Worth, Florida (plenty of playgrounds as well as a splash park area)

Norton Museum, West Palm Beach, Florida – Some days free for Palm Beach County or West Palm Beach Residents
Johnson History Museum and Historical Society of Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach, Florida

Nature Centers

Okeeheelee Nature Center, West Palm Beach, Florida
Riverbend Park, Jupiter, Florida
Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Delray Beach, Florida

Kids Eat Free
There are quite a few restaurants that have special “Kids Eat Free” days/times. Usually it’s one child free with the purchase of an adult entrée. You can check out Coupon Divas list here to see what is currently available in your area. This list is quite extensive so I have not verified each listing.

These are just a handful of ideas to get you started on exploring some summer fun. Of course, we always have the beach nearby as well! If you would like to find some new and exciting things to do, pretend you are a first-time visitor in your town. Check out the local visitor’s guides and tourist information. Go to the Chamber of Commerce website and you should find a great deal of information.

Now for some other good stuff!

All You Magazine March 2012 Coupon List – Bargain Briana has been kind enough to provide a list of coupons that are in Walmart’s All You Magazine for June.  You can check it out here  to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for $1.66 per issue here.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has fewer coupons than the newsstand version.
