UPDATE: Summer weekends are winding down, so hit up these awesome (and free!) funtivities while the weather's still on your side. This story was originally published on July 3.
While we can think of plenty of ways to splurge when the mood hits, our commitment to fiscal responsibility (read: making rent) means those extravagances need to be balanced with thrifty moments, too. Lucky for us, we live in D.C., which might just be the epicenter of free fun.
And we're not just talking about big museums and touristy sites — way too obvious! Nope, we're doing you one better and digging up some relatively under-the-radar ways to get your kicks, sans cash. Awesome theater, music, art — even yoga in the park — are all just being given away, if you know where to look. So, get out there and enjoy the summer— without blowing that fund you've been stashing for a new fall wardrobe.
