Cheaper Local Fun in a Tough Economy

Before you get trapped at home in a bubble of gas price depression--we thought it would be a good idea to remember a few of the cheaper and closer attractions. The Tallahassee Museum has welcomed Patas Monkeys just in time for Mother's Day when you can get in free with a paying guest. And of course there's always IMAX and Mary Brogan Museum downtown.

"It's easier to get here and park here than most people think with the Klemen Parking Garage, especially in the evenings." said Jessie Easen with the Challenger Learning Center

IMAX will be flashing a documentary of one of the flashiest rock bands in history on their massive screen and you can see the film for the price of a regular movie ticket. And there's another spot for a little more that will make you hurt laughing because that's what they do for a living at the Comedy Zone.

Joe West, with the Comedy Zone said, "With gas being like $3.65, $3.75 a gallon, you know, you got to cut back other things. One of the real nice advantage of this is you can't afford that 200 dollar an hour therapist, but for like ten dollars, we're going to make you laugh for two hours."

And the best part about these events--and many others in town--is they are for less than a two hours drive. The cheap fun bandwagon continues in Georgia as Six Flags dropped ticket prices by ten dollars for the remainder of the 2008 season. And at Wild Adventures in Valdosta--it has opened Splash Island Water Park, which is free with general admission to Wild Adventures.
