We all know that travel experiences are priceless. But did you know that some can actually be without cost as well? We at TravelingMom are all about free travel experiences – and we’re doing a #TMOM Twitter Party series of Free in The USA to share! We’re starting with the Northeast (ME, VT, NH, MA, RI, CT and NY) and moving across the country, one area a week. So invest just an hour – and chat with us about free travel at the next #TMOM Twitter Party on July 4, with a Ricardo Luggage giveaway.

July 4 #TMOM Twitter Party –  Free in the Northeast USA  with Ricardo Luggage Giveaway

Love to travel – but don’t have a first class budget? We at TravelingMom have you covered! We’re launching a series of #TMOM Twitter parties all focuses on our favorite section, Free Fun Things To Do in the 50 States. That’s where our team of Traveling Moms share their favorite free places, parks, events and activities. Yes, no matter where you go in our country, there’s something to do for free – and we want to make sure you know about it!

First up? The great Northeast. We’ll be talking about where to go and what to do for free in New York and New England. You want Free in Freeport? We got that covered. Want Boston on the cheap? Uh Huh. You can even take a bite of the Big Apple – and it won’t cost a dime.

But we won’t stop there. At upcoming #TMOM Twitter parties, we’ll be featuring freebies from coast to coast. Show your kids the country – and stay within your budget. (And if you have a favorite local freebie, come join in. We’d love to hear all about it!)

So mark your calendar for Monday, July 4. That’s when we’ll be setting off fireworks – and launching our “Free in the USA” celebration.

Free in the Northeast? Yes, please.
