We would have spent a tiny fortune going to Indy, so I was really excited that our 3 days of fun filled family time came out super cheap. If you haven't already, check out your local newspaper and tv station websites for exclusive coupon codes for area activities and attractions. Ours offers many deals like the ones you would find on groupon, only it's discounts for things to do locally. On our first day we were able to snag a coupon for b1g1 free day pass to our local indoor fun zone. For $36 total, the four of us were able to spend the day bowling, go cart riding, and black light mini golfing.
How cool is this mini golf?
The second day we used our free hotel voucher for the hotel about a mile down the road. We had a fun filled day of swimming, then Jason went home and we had girl time. We were party rockers until 2 am, which was a real treat since bedtime is always at 9pm!
Finally, on our last day of fun, we were able to snag some 1/2 price ice cream gift cards through the local news site.
Then wrapped up the day store hopping scoping out the Halloween stuff. Yes, I realize that Halloween is months off, but it is our favorite to decorate for. We wait for Halloween decorations to hit the stores all year long. Plus, we like rocking the Batman masks :)
Did you take a staycation or have a last family fun day hurrah before the kids went back to school? What kind of local deals do you get and where do you find them?
