Having fun on a budget


Raquel Ahrens, Writer

Teenagers often want to do fun things, but it can be hard to find affordable activities to do. Here are a few ideas for fun ways to pass the time on a budget.

One activity is to go downtown in Jordan. It’s close by, and there are cute antique shops and an arcade where you can pay $7 to play old-style arcade games all day. 

Another idea is to go bowling in downtown New Prague. It costs about $8 for one game, including the fee for shoe rental. It’s a very fun place to hang out with friends, and they also serve food and drinks.

 One fall themed idea is going to Barten Pumpkins or The Montgomery Orchard. Both of these places have fun fall activities to keep you busy. 

There is also a park about 25-minutes away from New Prague called Cleary Lake Park that could be a fun place to play outside or walk around the lake. 

There are also several new places to check out on Main Street in New Prague, including boutiques that are fun to browse in, and there is a delicious new ice cream place as well.

With all these ideas, there is no way you can’t enjoy yourself on a budget.
