I didn’t actually meet Jamie from Creating Really Awesome Free Things (aka C.R.A.F.T.) at BlissDom, but I saw her there. Blame my annoying shyness for me not going up and gushing all over her. But I’ve followed and enjoyed her blog for a while, and when I saw she was looking for participants for her Creating Really Awesome Free Trips series, I volunteered to tell her and her readers a little bit about all the great free and low-cost things you can do in Fayetteville (and surrounding environs, of course; you can’t leave Crystal Bridges off a list like this!).
My post over there is live, and I’ve decided I didn’t write it so much for the people who read it and hopefully will come visit our fair city.
I wrote it for me.
Sometimes I spend too much time (way too much time) within the walls of my house. I work here, eat most of my meals here, sleep here. We do at lot of at-home entertaining, so I even do most of what little socialization I get at home.
Writing this post I got to see some things I don’t see every day (OK, the library and the parks were easy; we’re there on a weekly basis). I can’t tell you the last time I’d been up on campus, or to the lake. Mount Sequoyah had been more recent, but still a while. So it was really fun for me to drive around town taking pictures for this post, and reminding myself of all the reasons I’m glad we live here.
Non-locals, you really should come visit; it’s beautiful here. Locals, what did I miss? Any other free or cheap destinations you love? Please share in the comments!
Wherever your travels take you this weekend, or this summer, I hope you enjoy, and come back home and remember what’s so great about home.
