Free Family Fun--become a tourist

The weekend is here, if you are like me you are beginning to wonder what you are going to do to entertain the kiddos this weekend, but you don't want to spend money since the holiday's are coming up and you need to buy gifts, extra food, even plane tickets or gas for travel if you are one of the lucky ones that gets to visit family in another state or country this holiday season.

I suggest you do what we are doing this weekend.  Become a tourist in your own town.  Go to your town (or the nearest town to you if you are a country bumpkin :) ) tourist website and explore.  Take a walking tour of old homes, free museums no matter how small, go downtown and walk along and look at all of the shops, visit a military museum in honor of Veteran's day this week.  There are many things to do that you may not have done or haven't done in a long time.

We, however, are lucky enough to live in a state that is rich in history and history is one of my favorite subjects :)

Enjoy your weekend... and if you do decide to become a tourist in your own town let me know how it goes :)  I'll post pics next week.
