Summer is coming and parents and caregivers are asking the age-old question: “What are we going to do with the kids this summer?” 100+ Free Things to Do in Atlanta offers frugal and fiscally-responsible families, ideas for summer fun and year-round entertainment. The book includes tips on visiting Atlanta’s favorite attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, and Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta for free. In addition, families can learn how to beat the heat with free pool time and splash fountains, escape inside for arts and crafts at local retailers or outside to experience nature. With this book, summer will be anything but boring.

Written by Atlanta resident Sue Rodman, the book is a natural extension of her popular and award-winning travel blog, Field Trips with Sue, about things to do with kids in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. The blog helps families plan outings, day trips, weekend getaways and vacations from a first-hand point of view.  More importantly, from a mom’s point of view.  Each entry in 100+ Free Things to Do in Atlanta includes the who, what, where and when with costs up front for easy viewing. Web links guide readers to specific information on the attraction; addresses make it easy to plug into the GPS on the go.

100+ Free Things to do in Atlanta is available in ebook formats such as Kindle, Nook, iPad and iPhone for $4.99. Printed books are available for $9.99. Visit www.fieldtripswithsue.com/100free to purchase your book today!

100+ Free and Cheap Things to do in Atlanta with Kids
By Sue Rodman, Field Trips with Sue

One of the best things you can do for your children is take them new places and let them experience the world around them. Here are some free and inexpensive things you can do with kids. The ideas are taken from a new book called 100+ Free and Cheap Things to do in Atlanta with Kids which includes the who, what, where and when, with costs up front for easy viewing. Web links guide readers to specific information on the attraction; addresses make it easy to plug into the GPS on the go.

The book is available at www.fieldtripswithsue.com/100free in e-book format for the iPad, iPhone, Kindle and Nook for $4.99 and $9.99 for the printed version. You’ll pay for it with your first outing! So pack a picnic lunch and head out for a frugal afternoon of fun. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find:

Visit a Museum or Attraction – Several Atlanta area attractions including the Georgia Aquarium, Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta and The Atlanta Braves offer opportunities to visit for free. For instance, all Georgia Public Libraries have a Family Pass to Zoo Atlanta that can be checked out with a library card.

See a Movie – Southern Outdoor Cinemas host free movies at parks, and shopping centers all summer long. For indoor movies, Regal Cinemas hosts the Regal Summer Movie Express. The theater shows G and PG rated films at 10 am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and admission is only $1. Plus a portion of the proceeds benefits the Will Rogers Institute.

Get Back to Nature – For low cost and big fun, check out Georgia State Parks or any of the National Parks. There are also several nature preserves around Atlanta that offer free admission including Dauset Trail. Dauset Trail is a 1200 acre preserve with trails, creeks, wildlife and an extensive calendar of events throughout the year.

Play Sports – From watching professional sports teams to playing them on your own, the book gives you ideas on active fun including bowling. Several national bowling centers offer free bowling to students during the summer. Check out www.kidsbowlfree.com or sign up for Brunswick Zone’s Bonus Zone for emailed coupons. AMF also has a free bowling program.

Build a Craft – Learn what stores offer kids activities for a bit of indoor (and cooler) fun. For example,Home Depot and Lowe’s Home Improvement offer monthly kid’s workshops where children make and take a wooden craft. Both programs also include a kid sized apron.
