3 Ways To Save: Family entertainment

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- Many families may be staying home for Spring Break. So we have a few ways to save on your entertainment options.

Take advantage of your library. A growing number of libraries in southern Illinois are now offering e-books. Even if the one in your community doesn't have a book you want, it's likely it can be borrowed via a library loan system. In most cases these services are little or no cost.

Shop for discounts on movie theater tickets. AMC Theaters, for example, has a program called Discount Tuesdays. You can save when you purchase tickets for a movie. Check AMC's website for the details.

Visit the natural beauty of southern Illinois. You can see Garden of the Gods, Giant City State Park and other parts of our region at little or no cost.
This is a great way to get out and exercise and explore some of what nature has to offer. By the way, Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tours in Makanda has a discount of $20 this month if you book online with the promo code springbreak 19.
