When Summer starts to fade and fall weather hits it's time for inside activities. Sooner then getting cooped up inside and start hallucinating about cats in hats, get out and enjoy the town. But how do you avoid malls, fast food outlets, toy stores and other money pits?
It all relies on the joy kids have in repetition and the remarkable value of annual passes. Go to your Museum, Butterfly Garden, Aquarium, Zoo, or IMax and you'll find an exorbitant price for a single visit and a bizarrely affordable price for an annual pass. Often an annual pass is priced similar to 2-3 visits.
What's more, your kids could probably go every weekend and not get sick of seeing familiar sites. Plus, if you ever get suckered into buying toys and other merchandise in the gift shop, you'll benefit from a discounted rate.
