    I have an above ground pool. It is not very big but it is free and I swim in it. Also, fishing is very fun and free or inexpensive.

    I like browsing through HP questions (:  I seriously spend too much time on this site, but at least it's free!

    I also love the library and people watching at the mall.

    Read, mostly.  Swim, beadwork, long walks, photography, baking, more reading.  Hanging out with my kids or my husband or both.

    There are loads of things you can do for free !  Go on picnics - play games - swim - read - find free museums or other places to visit - looking on the net is only free if you have free wifi !

    I go to the library weekly (because I'm a book worm) and my husband and I go hiking at our local park when we can. Both options are free and entertaining.

    I  enjoy spending time in my garden, reading, and playing cards or games w/ my husband or best friend. I have always loved walking and hiking but can't get around as well as I used to because of worn joints.

    Gathering and preparing foods from Nature is a favorite pass time of mine. Reading is fields of study that are unrelated to what I do also interest me. Very good movies and documentaries are also a lot of fun for me.
    Regards,

    I can hike nearby trails and make it a different kind of adventure each time- looking for wildflowers one day, gathering herbs and wild foods on another, and photographing the sights on yet another.

    I think learning new things is fun. I also like being creative. If I am bored and looking for something free to pass the time I will :

    *Play some music and dance with my daughter

    *Read a book

    *Try to learn something new

    *Draw, draw, draw

    *Write

    *Clean

    *Try to find clever ways to use junk to make home improvements.

    *Sew something

    *Embroider my jeans

    *Look at photos online for inspiration

    *Read some jokes

    *Take pictures

    I have all the supplies for these activities at home, so they don't even cost me any gas money. If I go out for fun I will usually go to the library, or just over to a friend's house for awhile.

    Taking photos, walking, reading, exercising at home, chatting to neighbours over the fence, swimming on the beach, and playing scrabble online in facebook.

    Writing Hub pages, but lately not enough time to finish them.  Now if you have the time and want a free group thing, there is always going to the park or a picnic at a playground or hike through a natural trail.

    I jump onto Hub Pages and check out the latest. I will comment and maybe get inspired to write a Hub.

    What I do for fun that cost me nothing is spending my time with my grandparents and with my boyfriend. I spend my time with because you may never know when your time will end. Every moment spent with them are very precious to me, their smile, their voice, and the way call me. Happiness is meaningful word and no money can buy it from us. smile

    My children and I attend a lot of the activities and events offered at our local library. They've been able to see animal shows, meet a shriner clown and watch him put on his clown makeup, meet pirates and  even challenge them to a duel. All of this was free and just in one summer. The quality of many local libraries and the efforts of their employees are often unnoticed and underappreciated. We live in a small town of only about 3,000 people so I can only imagine what is available in larger towns and cities.
