Free and Frugal Fun, All Summer Long

Take a look at today’s blog for our guide to free, frugal fun your family will love.

Take a trip to the beach

If you’re in Daytona Beach, one of the world’s most famous shorelines is just steps away, waiting to be enjoyed and explored. Skip around in the sand, built a castle, ride the waves or walk up and down the shore, whose beauty and natural fun comes free of charge. You can also drive up the beach in your car in designated areas. Take a picnic basket and play your favorite music for this classic pastime!

For another kind of beach experience, take the family to explore the natural parks at Ormond Bicentennial (where you can sprawl out over the sand or enjoy a round of racquetball!), or the natural escape of North Peninsula State Recreation Area. Both are free and fun for the whole family.

Learn something new at a local museum…

Rainy day? There’s still plenty to enjoy! Even after the school year ends, your child will have a chance to learn something new at local museums like the Southeast Museum of Photography or the Casements, where you can immerse yourself in the 20th-century world of John D. Rockefeller’s famous winter home.

… or indulge your sweet tooth

Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory in Ormond Beach is your go-to spot for chocolatey gifts and treats, but you don’t need to spend a cent to enjoy a one-of-a-kind look at how this famous factory operates. Take a complimentary tour of the historic building and its deliciously sweet confections process! For kids and adults alike, this is an activity worth savoring.

Catch a kids’ movie

Going to the movies may be expensive—but not always. For a chance to kick back and enjoy a classic kids’ movie like Shrek or Rio, head to the theater at the Ocean Walk Shoppes (by the Bandshell) for free 10 am showings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays June through August.

Enjoy music on the beach

Looking for a fun way to spend Saturday nights this summer? Why not try live music by the beautiful oceanfront—for free? That’s exactly what you can do at the Bandshell all summer long, with music starting just after 7 pm and a fun fireworks show to follow over the water!

With these ideas and a bit of creativity, you’re well on your way to a summer that’s as inexpensive as it is unforgettable!
