Culture for Free

What happened to do the days when browsing a museum or visiting your local zoo were affordable?  Rates continue to go up to these normally affordable cultural ventures.  Now, thanks to Bank of America some of you gals can visit local zoos and museums for free (there’s that beautiful word again).  If you have a Bank of America credit card or bank account (with debit card) you’re eligible to visit certain museums and zoos for free during the first weekend of every month.  Check to see if the museum you want is on the list.

Staycation or a Regional Getaway

All though gas prices are starting to fall (a teensy bit) traveling is still really expensive! We just have to face it, a dollar doesn’t go as far as it used to.  As summer winds down and we scrounge to make last minute vacation plans, we all realize that we just can’t afford much.  That’s where the staycation or regional vacations come into play.  Chances are, with in a couple hour drive of wherever you live there are some pretty awesome places to visit.  Do you have a lake close to you, a casino even a day spa? Or how about a great city to check out? There are probably tons of things for you to do in your area, that don’t require a flight or five tanks of gas.

 I live in the North East and I know there are tons of things to do with in my area.  If you don’t want to travel at all or lay down the big bucks for a hotel, than a staycation is right for you.  How many times have you passed a local attraction and never went in? Or how many times did you say “I’m going to do that” and never actually did it?  Well, a staycation provides just the opportunity to do that.  As a girl born and raised in New York I was embarrassed to say that I had never visited the top of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and many other “tourist” attractions.  I guess I just take them for granted as I see them all the time.  Well I am now proud to say that I have seen the city from the top of the Empire State Building and looked up in awe at the Statue of Liberty.  What? I needed a staycation.
