Yesterday I shared all sorts of great things to do this summer in Phoenix and Omaha–on a budget. However, many of you don’t live in those areas (and aren’t planning a visit anytime soon). So, I teamed up with over 75 bloggers from across the nation to bring you a fabulous list, with inexpensive and fun things to do in cities all over the USA! We’ve got something from the majority of the states, so whether you’re planning a staycation in your own backyard, taking a trip someplace fun, or just want a little virtual vacation, you should find some good budget-friendly ideas here!
Enjoy!
