Summer is here and in full swing in Hampton Roads. With so much to do in the local area if you are a beach goer, amusement park enthusiast or you just like to see the local sites you know this area is for you. But there are days in the summer where your family might just need a break from going to these places, and you need something else to do.
How about going to places that might be indoors and could be at low cost or free even? That sounds like a deal to me, right? Well, you can, and I have found them for you right here in the local Hampton Roads area. Keep your family busy and never get bored while not breaking the bank to do it!
Take advantage of the Free Movies!!!! Yeah, you heard me right there are free movies in Hampton Roads at your local theaters for kids at no cost or low cost. Regal Theaters in Newport News, Chesapeake or Norfolk are participating in the Regal Summer Movie Express. Or do you like to go to the movies to chill and recline, you can check out the movies at the Paragon 12 at City Center in Oyster Point in Newport News. Both of these theaters have a movie schedule of previous ran movies on their website. You can see more information about the free or low-cost movies on this last blog post, Free Movies.
Do your kids love to Skate? Such a past time of the past but hey its still fun! Kids love this activity, and you can see as well such a to get every member of your family involved. Skating is fun, but it does come at a cost usually. But if you have kids under the age of 12, you can get them two skating passes for free every week. When the summer ends, you can still continue to have your kids skate free throughout the year if your local rink participates with Kids Skate Free program. Learn more information about here; Roller Skating is Family Fun.
Bowling is fun! I love bowling, don’t you? How about I tell you your kids can keep busy each day while bowling. There are quite a few lanes in Hampton Roads that participate in where kids can bowl up to two free games per day. For those that have children in the local military bases, you can also take advantage as well. Look to see how you can get your kids signed up and more information about bowling fun here, Make your plans to help them during Summer Break with Free Bowling.
Do you or your child love to read? It’s summer, and usually, no kid wants to think they are back to school. But you have some kids or maybe yourself who loves to get lost in a book. Well, I do, and I love taking advantage of what summer programs are, offered at your local library. Now since you have readers young and old they have programs in York County and Newport News Public Libraries just for you. These programs will include infant/ toddler programs, Kids, and Adult Summer reading programs, which include some cool prizes to keep you and your children reading. I cannot think of a better way to get you and your kids involved in such an enriching activity!!!
If your children love animals or aquatic life but you might not want to go outside to see them, See them in the museum. Take an adventure at the Virginia Living Museum or the Aquarium in Virginia Beach!!! They have so much to do every day during the summer for kids and families. This activity usually comes at a small cost, but it is so worth it for those who love looking at the animals or the aquatic life. Look for more information about the VLM or VA Beach Aquarium here!
Hampton Roads offer so much for families to take advantage of either indoors or outdoors!! You have so much available, so have some fun!!!
