2. What is good in your neighborhood? Sometimes events in your community may be a great alternative. Check local papers for great shows that are free or low cost. What is playing at the neighborhood theater? What local festivals are going on in your neighborhood? Look and see what is happening right in front of you. Chances are you are missing out on action-packed fun right in your neighborhood!
3. “Staycations” Perhaps? So you cannot afford to go away. Have you ever thought of rediscovering where you are? Learn your own town. Stay at a hotel in your city and visit downtown.
