Tell Us Your Favorite Free Things to Do on Vacation!

We’re gearing up for our November Special Report all about free travel, and we want your help! So please, tell us about the favorite free things you’ve done on vacation. We’ll be featuring the best tips in an article.

When it comes to vacations, free comes in all shapes and sizes. Like that time in Florence when you made a lunch of scrumptious samples handed out by the food sellers at the famed Mercato Centrale, or the day you discovered you could see the New York skyline for nothing by cruising on the Staten Island Ferry. Free activities, transportation, food, even great walks or self-guided tours are all game.

Send us your favorite free things to do on vacations in 250 words or fewer through this online submission form (you’ll be briefly redirected to another site) by November 5. We’ll be collecting stories and publishing the best as part of our Free Travel Special Report, coming your way on November 10.

Thanks! We can’t wait to start reading, and sharing, your tips.

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review. We offer our unbiased opinions and do not accept compensation to review products. All items are in stock and prices are accurate at the time of publication.
