To kick off the new name and ease into my three day weekend here is my Top Three Thrifty date ideas (in no particular order). I like a good evening date every once and a while but more often than not the fiance and I end up planning our dates during the day on Saturday's.
1. Hole-in-the Rock
This short little hike (maybe five minutes) ends at a hole in the rock! Located in Papago Park it looks out over the valley giving you a great view of downtown Phoenix. This is one of my top pick because ... guess what folks its a money free activity! I like Hole-in-the-Rock because its an easy hike but still allows you to get some fun pictures of a very cool natural rock formation. For those with a little money to burn the Phoenix Zoo is right next door. Plan an early hike and then wander on over to meet some elephants.
I don't know about anyone else but I am a fan of mini golf. We leave near Golfland allowing for little travel which is always a plus on the weekends. Tickets are about $8.00 for adults and you have a couple of courses to choose from. If you want to play a second round it only $2.50 per player! Remember to bring your own water though! Water from a vending machine is just outrageous. Oh and your not and the driving range so keep it low.
3. Tempe History Museum
If you are like me a like a good museum then the Tempe History Museum is a fun place to stop and learn a little more about Tempe. The museum has an interactive display that even lets you take your picture and make your own postcard! This makes the list because its FREE!
There you have it three fun activities under $10.00!! I couldn't ask for a better way to spend some time out and about on a Saturday.
What fun thrifty date idea do you have?
