Minnesota Free Activities

Several fun Activities you can do for Free in Minnesota

Free Activities in Minnesota These days things can be expensive, but don’t worry, you can still have plenty of fun on a low budget and even better for free.

On a hot day the best place to be is at the beach cooling off. Free Whipple Lake in Baxter is a beach that costs nothing. The beach has a lifeguard on duty, changing rooms, showers, picnic tables, and fishing areas. It is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.

Another such beach is at Serpent Lake in Deerwood. This one also has a lifeguard, changing rooms, picnic tables and fishing spots – all at no charge. It opens daily from 8 a.m. till sunset.

On some Saturday mornings, Minneapolis Central Library shows short films for children, offers a free art project, and provides free snacks and drinks for children to enjoy. Most libraries in Minneapolis and St. Paul organize story times for children of different ages. Some bookshops like Wild Rumpus and The Red Balloon also have very good story times.

Mall of America in Bloomington has some theaters that offer free films on big screen for family entertainment. This happens on Saturdays starting at10 a.m., and different films are shown every week. During summer months these free films are also shown on Wednesdays.

A good way to change the routine of every day life is to go camping. Blue Earth City Fairground in Blue Earth offers free campgrounds for two days. If you wish to stay longer the charge is only $5 per day. The facility has several camp sites with bathrooms, some of which have free water and electricity. Here you can choose to stay in a tent or come in a camping caravan.

The Minneapolis central business district is a great place to browse and do window-shopping. You can get together with a friend or two and check out the boutiques and bookshops at Nicollet Mall, or visit the clothing and cutlery shops at Uptown Mall. You may want to view gift items and souvenirs at Chambers' gift shop, or plan for your baby's clothing at Pacifier.

An active schedule is guaranteed to make you hungry. Many restaurants offer free children's meals with the purchase of an adult meal. One of these is Bennigan's found in Coon Rapids. Kids can have free meals every day. Another of these restaurants is Baja Sol in Minneapolis. On Saturday and Sunday one child eats for free with an adult purchase. Yet another such restaurant is Broadway Pizza in Woodbury. On Mondays after 5 p.m. one child less than 10 years old can have a free buffet with an adult buffet purchase.
