Free Events In Florida: Miami - April Frugal Family Fun

South Pointe Beach, Miami Beach, Fl
There are lots of free events in South Florida, and if you take the time to look around in your community you will find lots of frugal family fun activities. I have listed a few of the free events in Miami below, but the best place to start is at your city website's calendar of events.

A day out with the family does not have to break your family's entertainment budget, and by participating in free or low-cost local activities you not only show support for your local community, but you also help your feel apart of their community.
