My family is always on the look out for fun things to do (and, when you’re a homeschooling family, it’s great that fun things can also double as field trips!) But, unfortunately, we don’t always have extra money for doing fun things. So, when I can find FREE things to do, that’s even better!
Since I’m sure we’re not the only family who likes free entertainment, I thought I’d share a list of FREE THINGS to do in Central PA. Most of these are things that my family has done in the past and really enjoyed; a few are things that we have on our bucket list for this summer.
