It’s hard to believe that summer is already here! Whether you are looking for fun (and inexpensive!) summer activities for the kiddos or you’re looking to enjoy the longer days of sunshine around your busy schedule, there are TONS of fun (and FREE!) things to do in Hampton Roads this summer! Check out some of these ideas for summer fun on a budget!

1-) Summer Learning: We’re never too young (or too old!) to learn! There are tons of educational summer hot spots to visit in Hampton Roads! Check out exhibits like Nauticus, the MacArthur museum of art, the Chesapeake planetarium, or the children’s theatre. Look online for discounts, coupons, and special summer deals for extra savings.

2-) Explore the Outdoors: For great family fun or to get you a step closer on your fitness goals, head outside for one (or several) of the awesome locations offered in Hampton Roads! Locations like the Chesapeake Fun Forest, First Landing State Park, and the Norfolk Botanical Gardens offer awesome, inexpensive outdoor fun!

3-) Hit the Beach: Whether you choose the ocean front or a smaller beach location such as Chic’s beach, there is nothing that says summer fun quite like a day at the beach! Stock your cooler with drinks and snacks and head out for a free day of summer fun.

4-) Pack a Lunch: Check out locations in your area that offer free picnic locations! Spots like Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach have tables and shade for longer picnic trips on hot days. If the kiddos come too, be sure to grab some snacks to feed the ducks and geese!

5-) Backyard Cookouts: Fire up the grill and throw on the burgers! The summer is a great time to check out new grilling recipes and share them with friends and family. Here are some grilling ideas to get you started! Be sure that you are using safety precautions when using your grill. Always keep your grill and all hot devices away from your house. Check your city for laws on grill near buildings. If you have children running around, be sure to keep your grill and any other hot items out of reach at all times.

6-) Take a Road Trip: Is there somewhere that you’ve been wanting to check out in Hampton Roads? Maybe it’s a new restaurant or an ice cream spot or a new park? Hop in the car and go check it out!

7-) What’s Happening In YOUR Community: Is there cool stuff happening in your community? Do you have a neighborhood cookout or pool party? Join in the fun! If you and the kids are headed to the pool, remember to always keep an eye on your little swimmers! Children grow tired after hours of swimming and sunshine. Be sure to drink lots of water, wear sunscreen, and keep an eye on your kiddos.
