Let’s face it, traveling is expensive! If you are a family like ours, we are looking to give ourselves and our children fun experiences without breaking the budget.

So, as a native Floridian myself, I started gathering a list of activities that cost $10 or less. Whether you are from Florida and looking for a short day trip, or you are here for the sunshine, or to visit your grandparents, I hope you will find this site helpful. Experience much of what Florida has to offer without emptying your bank account.

Enjoy! Check out the menu at the top - organized by location - for our favorite activities with maps of locations. View and follow our blog for more detailed posts and photos on select spots! Categories for the blog are listed at the bottom of the page. Please bear with us as we add new locations each week!
