(uggh- I typed this the first time and it didn't post! round 2)


Look at the Family Membership options for places like Museums, Zoos/Aquariums, Theme Parks.

I usually have a Zoo or Aquarium membership most years, and a museum membership.

For me, the Aquarium membership is cheaper than my zoo, but with it, I can still get into our state zoos AND Aquariums, plus get free or 50% tickets to zoos/aquariums around the country. It gives us things to do when we travel to other cities, at little or no extra cost. (like when visiting grandparents).

The same is true for museums. The main difference with that is that your membership to one museum won't work in other museums within 90-miles of your "home museum". I typically buy a membership from Chicago, and then can use here in NC. That has worked for us the last 4 years, except this past year when one service rep asked my DH for ID and saw he lived within 90-miles, so he had to pay. But I've gotten really cheap special exhibit tickets, free entrance, and more.


Most times- if you are going to a place more than 2 times in a year, the membership pays for itself! So you can go more at no additional cost. You can often get additional discounts also, AND with Zoos/Aquariums and museums, they often times are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!


So check them out- do the math. Evaluate how often you do or would visit. It might save you some money! (And for homeschoolers like me...it's a GREAT way to save money since we visit the museums and zoos alot).
