If heading out on the town is more your style than staying in, there are still plenty of ways to be thrifty and have a good time. Drinks, covers, and late-night cabs can get pricey fast, so shake up the going-out routine altogether and take advantage of free or low-cost summer events in your area. Pack a picnic for an outdoor concert, round up a group of friends to see an exhibit at a local gallery, and look up the dates of fun festivals nearby. Often museums and attractions will host a monthly or weekly discount (or free!) night, so you should try to plan around those. Your city is your living room if you know where to look. There are plenty of opportunities for budget-friendly fun!
