July 11 #TMOM Twitter Party –  Free in the MidAtlantic States  with Ricardo Luggage Giveaway

We at TravelingMom are all about fun things to do to get to know our country. And it’s even better when the fun is free! This week, we’ll be discussing the free things to do in the MidAtlantic States. From my home state of New Jersey down the coast to Virginia, we’ll be sharing our favorite free parks, activities, events and beaches. (Yes, beaches without beach tags still exist. We’ll tell you where!)

It’s all part of our #TMOM Twitter party series that focuses on one of our favorite TravelingMom sections, Free Fun Things To Do in the 50 States. 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!

Some beaches are free in the MidAtlantic States.

Of course, Washington DC is the nation’s showcase – and probably the country’s mecca of free attractions. Yep, everything from the zoo to the monuments to the ever popular space museum – all free!

And if you want to discover the real Jersey shore (nothing like you’ve seen on TV)….well, come on in! The water’s fine….and the beach and other attractions are free! We’ll take you on a ride down Route 95, discovering free things in Delaware and Virginia as well – all at the next #TMOM Twitter party.

Our travels don’t stop there. After all, it’s in our name!  At upcoming #TMOM Twitter parties, we’ll be featuring freebies from east to west and everywhere in between. 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 11. That’s when we’ll be jumping over the waves of inflation – and continuing our “Free in the USA” series. And if you’re lucky, you may even win a beautiful travel bag from Ricardo luggage. So even the packing won’t cost you a cent!
