I'm a mom. I know how quickly things add up, especially with more than 1 kid, and then the adults to watch them! But there is actually quite a few ways you can have fun in Rochester without breaking the bank!

Here are my top 13!

1. Feed the ducks, hit the skate park or just enjoy the playground down at Silver Lake Park.

2. Hang out with nature! Relax for Storytime at Quarry Hill on July 14th.

3. Outdoor Movie (blog) or stay cool with this Saturday's Free Kid Movie at Cinemagic or Movies In the Park on July 21st.

4. Fruit picking. Pick your strawberries or a variety of other seasonal fruits.

5. Rochester Art Center Family Free Day is July 14th

6. Slip N Slide. A little tarp, water and soap will do!

7. Petting Zoo. Head over to Zollman zoo where its got animals and a cool discovery zone.

8. Water balloon fight. This will be ESPECIALLY good on a hot weekend like this one!

9. Bike Ride or rollerblade. These are some of my Favorite Trails!
