  • Many movie theaters offer discounted or free films for kids on weekday mornings.
  • Public libraries offer free passes to state museums, parks and attractions.
  • Free parking passes to state park beaches through the state No Child Left Inside program can also be found at the library.
  • Use a website like www.gasbuddy.com to find the cheapest gas to save money on transportation costs.
