Can you believe the last month of summer vacation is already approaching? Try to make the most of this month if you can, because the weather will warm up and there will be lots to do! August seems to be the month of free activities in the Bay Area. With free concerts, museum entry, and festivals, you’ll be able to have fun all month long without breaking the bank.

Free Museum Admission (First Tuesday)
Did you know that the Conservatory of Flowers, de Young Museum, Legion of Honor museum, Museum of Craft and Design, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts all have free admission on the first Tuesday of every month? That means that on Tuesday, August 6th, you are either going to have a really tough decision to make or you are going to have a really busy day! But don’t worry, if you can’t make it to all of them in one day, you’ll only have to wait until next month to go to the others!

On August 10th and 11th, the Pacific Islanders’ Cultural Association will be hosting its annual Aloha Festival at the San Mateo County Event Center.
