  1. This is a great round robin post, thanks so much. I love reading these.

  2. Great list! I shared a link to it in my post on frugal backyard fun. Is anyone doing the Philly area?

  3. Barb – I was surprised that Philly and Pittsburgh weren’t included, but Happy Housewife and Springs Bargains put a call out on twitter several weeks ago for bloggers from all over to participate. The idea would make a fantastic post for you, since there is so much to do in philly. Thanks for your comments.

    Melynda – Thanks for the comments.

  4. Virginia in Southern CA says:

    This summer starting today I am going to take the kids to all the hiking places all over our city. There’s so many and we have never taken advantage of these before. I don’t want the kids to be on the couch all summmer and I am in complete control of that. Thanks for the ideas and motivation!

  5. No New York City? My family and I just did a staycation there (we are from NJ) and had a blast. We took one of those NYC bus tours around the city and saw all the major historic landmarks and attractions. If you are in the NYC area I definitely recommend it to all you staycationers out there :) .
