Enjoying Summer Without Breaking the Bank

The summer is one of the best times of the year. The weather is warm, outside dining returns and a number of activities and events are taking place in NYC. However, many of us are on a budget but that doesn’t mean we have to deprive ourselves a good time. If it’s free or affordable, do it.


So, what’s there to do in the Big Apple that won’t clean your pockets out? Plenty. Getting cultured is always a great route to go. There’s a number of art museums, aquariums and gardens in the city that offer free entry. Even the Children’s Museum of Manhattan has free entry every first Friday from 5-8pm.

SummerStage is a music lovers summer highlight. Did we mention that it’s FREE? This year, the festival kicked off June 3rd and continues until August 27th, so don’t waste any time grabbing your tickets here: Rumsey Playfield Summerstage Central Park


Sit under the stars with your closest friends or your lover at “Movies with a View”. Enjoy a live DJ, food and a free movie screening at sundown at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. For a complete movie list, visit this link provided by Timeout.com: Full Lineup for Outdoor Movies in Brooklyn Bridge Park


Contrary to popular belief, helicopter charter tours aren’t as pricey as many believe. Charters can be used to get to an important meeting in ample time and provide as a commute in case you miss your flight. But helicopter charters also serve as great touring transpo. Taking a ride up in the sky is fun, unforgettable and an affordable activity to take part in this summer.
