Free & Cheap Things to Do During February Vacation

It's February Vacation!  Yahoo!  Need some free/cheap things to do?  I know there are a ton of other things to do with the wee little ones around the South Shore - but I tried to focus mostly on the free/really cheap ones.  


Visit a Library

Visit a State Park

Check out the USS Constitution

Go Ice Skating at a DCR Rink

Go Ice Skating at Hidden Pond at Derby Street Shoppes (Free)

Try out the Commuter Ferry! ($6 each trip, kids 11 & under ride free)

Sign the kids up for Weymouth Recreation's Day Camp ($14 per 4 hour time slot or $28 for 8+ hours - go 1 day, go all 5 - the choice is yours!)

Visit Bass Pro Shops in Foxboro - this place is amazing!  They're having a free Boat Show the weekend of the 18th & 19th.  Free kids activities from 1pm-3pm. 

Visit Ikea!  Usually there are some events during vacation.  They aren't posted yet. 

Go to a Playground!  Snowing?  Just put the snowsuit on the kids - they'll have a blast.

Stay at home and RELAX!
