Sure you want to have fun, but do you always want to pay for it? Nope. Me neither. Some of the best places around Chester County offer free recreation, hiking trails, and educational opportunities. Some are even great ways to meet people and get to know your community even better! I have to say Chester County always has something going on, and here’s a list of activities that won’t break the bank. So, grab your favorite companion (maybe that’s just you), and stop by!
