 Top June Freebies and Cheapies in Atlanta
Free is the magic word that parents and kids love to hear. You may have heard the term, "There is no such thing as a free lunch", but if do some heavy searching, you will find that that old adage no longer applies to life. Companies, stores, and restaurants often use freebies as a way to attract new customers and retain the interest of the loyal ones. With a little time and patience, you will score some amazing deals or freebies on the web, while other deals are just around the corner. Here is a list of deals and freebies that you can take advantage of next month and some of them are extended throughout the summer or year-round!

These events have fun activities like arts & crafts, contests, prizes, shows, street performers, and much more. Each week has also has a different theme(June 25's theme is The Great Outdoors).

Parks & Nature Reserves
Summertime is the season to get out and explore the great outdoors. Fortunately, most city parks and reserves are 100% free. Take the kids to the beautiful Dunwoody Nature Center where you can take a closer look at nature's beauty, wild animals, and specialty gardens. If your kids need to release pent up energy, take them to East Roswell Park where they play on the playground or make up their own fun games in the large stretch of grass covered ground. Another great city park is East Cobb Park,a large area with grass, trees, playground, and hiking trail. Moreover, this park has several family friendly events like the Ultimate Playdate(every Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm) where families get together for a small music concert.
