Field Trips and Free Days!

We are fortunate in Arizona to have many opportunities to visit museums and more for free (or at a deep discount). I’ve noticed that more and more opportunities for free days are popping up everywhere, and when you’re educating at home, these benefits are worth taking a day off to go explore! In Arizona, we have something called First Fridays where a variety of museums and local businesses offer free entry. We love First Fridays, and it’s worth doing some research in your own state to see what discounts are available. Here are some other places in Arizona that offer free days:

The Desert Botanical Gardens 

The Children’s Museum of Phoenix

The Arizona Science Center

The Phoenix Art Museum

Other places we love offer deep discounts–like AZ on the Rocks, a really neat rock climbing gym–offers reduced homeschool days once a month. The entire family can climb for $15! We regularly build many of these activities into our monthly routine, and as a result, we get to enjoy many beautiful places and spaces without breaking our budget.

What free options do you and your family enjoy? Please share them below!
