Summer is in full bloom, and it’s the time of year to get outside and savor the sunshine. So you want to have a great experience this summer, but you're not really swimming in money or willing to squander your budget. Or maybe you've already blown your budget on a big trip and looking for conservative things to do the rest of the time.
Below are ten great, entertaining, fun and free things to try this summer. Do yourself a favor and get out there and do them!
1. Go for a hike — anywhere
Walking is free, and walking in nature, freeing. In Japan, they have something known as Shinrin-yoku, which is a "forest bathing trip," or a quick walk in the woods. Take as many of these as you can. Depending on where you live, you might have to drive or pay park fees but look for a tiny spot of nature (any type of nature, doesn't have to be a forest) that you can stroll in that's closer to your home.
