Final weeks of summer fun, without breaking the bank

Posted at 9:37 PM, Jul 25, 2018

If your beach weekends are winding down and your spectacular summer trips spent, don't put away your flip flops just yet.  There's still plenty of fun to be had here at home.


"One of my favorite things to do is to go to the movies, but the drive in theatre, Bengies.


Mia Redrick, the Mom Strategist says it's a short trip to Middle River for an affordable evening of family fun.


"They have double and triple headers, typically movie times start at 8:45 in the evening and the shows are great.  They're inexpensive, $5 for kids 10 and under, any anyone above 10 is $10."



Bengies has been around since 1956.  The landmark Drive In theatre features first run movies where you can bring your own snacks, snuggle with a blanket and sit in a folding chair.

Interested in hearing some local entertainment?  There's plenty of music to go around this summer.


"Another thing that we love to do is to go to the summer concert series at Belvedere Square. The summer concert series are great because they are easy, inexpensive and if you're trying to figure out what to do or get the kids out of the house and away from their electronics a summer concert is a really great way to enjoy some time out as a family."


If finding some fantastic food is on your list, Baltimore Restaurant Week, a fan favorite is just days away.


"It begins on July 27th.  It's a great opportunity for families to try awesome dining experiences from $15 to $35 per person.  I love taking my kids out to a fancy dining restaurant for $35 for a 3 course meal."
