Hunt down a local walking tour.

Every city has a story to tell. The best way to discover those hidden stories? Take a walking tour. 

  • Exploring Roosevelt Island, From Abandoned Laboratories to Landmarked Ruins: Join New York Adventure Club to explore everything from global scientific breakthroughs to an exposé that sparked mental health reform in America.

  • Queer History Walks: Take advantage of a free walking tour that explores the queer histories of the neighborhood surrounding the Whitney Museum and reflect on the changing nature of queer community as it formed along the New York waterfront. 

Take advantage of your local farmer’s market.

Remember your local farmer’s market often has more than fresh produce – many have evolved to include live entertainment, free crafts for kids (or adults!), and more. 

  • Free yoga at the Vizcaya Village Farmers Market: Miami’s Vizcaya Village Farmers Market offers free yoga classes taking place on Sundays.
  • Malibu Farmers Market Art Fest: On Sunday mornings, The Malibu Farmers Market sets up to provide the community a shopping experience like no other. In addition to the food vendors, the market features a vintage boutique and art festival.
