Roller Blading-whether you have your own skates or not, this is an activity that can be less than $10!

Local Sports Game-it could be high school, college or even a minor league game. Tickets for the Norfolk Tides, the AAA baseball team, are about $8.00 per person! Just eat dinner beforehand and you’re good to go!

Local Bookstore-you could sit in on free readings for various story titles. Barnes and Nobles have events almost every day in the Hampton Roads area, including a group dedicated to helping you overcome writer’s block!

Visit a Museum-how better to spend a hot summer afternoon than in an air-conditioned museum. Not all museums are boring either! The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk only costs $7.00 per adult.  You could definitely spend hours staring at beautiful pieces of artwork.

Festivals-the amount of carnivals, country fairs or festivals always increase during the summer. My favorite to attend in Norfolk is the Bayou Boogaloo & Cajun Food Festival at Town Point Park. For just $10.00 per person, you can see live entertainment; walk through the amazing New Orleans Art Gallery and more! For just a few bucks more, you can sample some of the mouthwatering Cajun-spiced crawfish, jambalaya, gumbo, and alligator.

Take a Tour-whether it’s of an area you’re not that familiar with or perhaps a historical tour of the city you live in. Williamsburg and Jamestown, Virginia have great tours to really experience the true history our state offers.
