Summer Fun Savings

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The new 'Get Going Guide' for summer of 2012 is out!  The 70 plus pages include just about everything you could want to do in Mecklenburg County during the summer months.

From the Nature Preserves to skate parks, the guide will give you hundreds of ideas of how to keep you kids busy this summer without spending a dime, or spending very little.

I met Theresa Carr at the Naomi Drenan Rec center with her three nephews.

She comes often and is looking forward to taking advantage of what the center offers during the summer months.

There is a 13,000 square foot skate park that kids use with skateboards, BMX bikes, even inline skates.

If you are interested in some of the summer camps the Parks and Recreation department offers, act quickly.  The camps are super popular and fill up relatively fast.

If you've found great things to do during the summer, that don't cost a lot, share them in the comment space below. 

Here's to a great summer break of relaxing, exploring and learning!
