    In addition to going to museums only during their free or discounted times, or using library passes, we just take the T downtown and visit places like the Common and Garden (frog pond for ice skating; swan boats; Common playground) or the pool near the Christian Science Church; the North End and the waterfront; the Freedom Trail; the Rose Kennedy Greenway sprinklers. Or just get off at one station and wander around to another one.

    We go to our neighborhood park and city pools a lot, and go biking on the Minuteman Bike Path or along the Charles River.

    When going to the ocean, we go late in the day to avoid parking charges, or go to Horseneck, which is only $7 to park.

    The trick to frugality ANYWHERE is to avoid giving in to buying things. Bring along your own water bottle and some snacks so you don't have to pay for a drink and snack for each family member -- that all adds up.

    We walk to Davis Square after dinner and hang out there, people watching. (And avoid the expensive ice cream there -- if we want a treat, there are cheap ice creams at the convenience store.)

    Apple picking can be very expensive -- but if you go to an apple orchard and just look at the animals, and maybe buy one small bag of apples in the store plus have cider donuts, it's still fun.
