Here is a cheap date idea that you can do any day, visit the mall. The best mall we have close by is the one in Niles Ohio. It’s always busy and has a lot of different things to often. One of which is a small aquarium, which is absolutely free to walk thru. We have spent a few afternoons watching the fish and trying to take good photos. Malls often have free events going on. So make sure to check out the visitor center and pick up some information.
You never know what you’ll find. I’ve seen pet days, where you can bring your pet to the mall and win free stuff for him/her and I’ve seen costume contests etc. All free local fun that makes for a great cheap date.
Does your local mall offer anything free to do?
