A cheap holiday outing?
We asked our Facebook fans what cheap outing their holiday wouldn't be complete without. Take a look and add yours!
Many families have that perfect spot that they have to visit whenever the school holiday boredom invades their home. It's even better when it's cheap or completely free.

We asked our Facebook fans 'What's your favourite free or cheap holiday outing?'.

Here's what they had to say:

No holiday is complete for me without a walk at Rondevlei, trying to spot hippos. - Adele

Esplanade in Hermanus has Winter specials. Half price! It is really fantastic as it gives parents a chance to take the kids on holiday. It's usually so expensive, especially for a single parent. I wish other holiday places would climb onboard! - Desire

My parents beach house. Especially when they are also there as they just love spending time with the little one. Then we get a bit of a break too. - Bridget

We almost never go on holiday because we live 20km from the kid's favourite beach! - Georgina

My 8-year-old loves school and learning new things so we visit museums. We have so many in Cape Town, from our history to toy museum. Plus the entrance is either free or very cheap! Pack in a picnic and it's a fun day for all. - Margo
