Updated: Mar 26, 2023

Weekends are a great time to relax and unwind, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to have a good time.

Plenty of activities you can do on the weekends won’t cost you a dime and can be just as fun, if not more so, than expensive activities. Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Have a Movie Marathon - Instead of going to the movies, why not have a movie marathon at home? Gather some popcorn, snacks, and drinks, and pick out a few of your favorite movies. You can even invite some friends over and make a night of it.

2. Take a Hike - Enjoy the great outdoors by hiking in the woods or walking around your neighborhood. It is free and a great way to get some exercise and fresh air.

3. Visit a Museum or Art Gallery - Many museums and art galleries offer free admission or discounted rates on weekends, so take advantage of it! You can learn about the history of your area or get inspired by fantastic artwork.

4. Have a Picnic - Pack a picnic basket with snacks and drinks and head to your local park. You can relax in the sunshine and have a leisurely meal without spending money.

5. Play Board Games - Get together with friends and family and play some board games. You can play classic games like Monopoly or Scrabble or even make up your own.

6. Go Camping - If you have the gear, camping is a great way to have a fun and inexpensive weekend. You can spend the weekend exploring nature, fishing, and roasting marshmallows over the campfire.

7. Visit Local Events - Many cities and towns have free festivals and events on the weekends that are worth checking out. From farmers’ markets to music festivals, something usually happens that won’t cost you a dime.

8. Have a Game Night - Invite some friends over for a game night, and you can play card games, board games, and even video games. You can even make it a potluck; everyone can bring a dish.

9. Go Geocaching - Geocaching is a fun activity where you use GPS coordinates to find hidden containers that other geocachers have left. It’s a great way to explore your area and spot fabulous hidden gems.

10. Go Stargazing - You can admire the night sky on clear nights. You can even download a stargazing app to help you identify constellations.

These are just a few ideas for weekend activities that won’t cost you a fortune. So the next time you’re looking for something to do on the weekends, consider these free options and have a blast without breaking the bank.
