The Friday Five

USS Constitution, one of the stops on the
Freedom Trail.
Summer is officially here! If you're looking for something to do in Massachusetts, but your budget is more Ripple than Dom Perignon, no worries. Five free things to do all Summer long.

1. Starting today, The Highland Street Foundation is sponsoring Free Fun Fridays. Sixty museums and cultural venues all over Massachusetts will have free admission to events every Friday during the Summer! Each Friday, six venues will offer free admission. Check the calendar to plan your trips.

2. The Worcester Art Museum will offer free admission during July and August. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.

3. If you're in Boston, follow the red, brick lined route for 2.5 miles and visit 16 historical sites along the Freedom Trail.

4. Monday through Saturday, The Boston Public Library offers a free Art and Architecture tour. The tour meets in the lobby of the McKim Building, Dartmouth St. entrance. Check the BPL site for the schedule. And if you go on the tour, don't forget to rub the tail of the lion for luck as you go up the stairs, and say "Hi" to my great-uncle Manny who worked on the lions.

5. If outdoor and hiking or picknicking is more to your liking, brave the wilds of South Central Massachusetts and visit Purgatory Chasm in Sutton, Massachusetts.
