Fun Local Things to Do with Groupon

This is a sponsored post, however all opinions expressed are my own. You don’t always have to travel to have a great time. Sometimes you can do some new things in your own backyard. Even if you do travel you can still do some stuff in the city you are in! Enter Groupon!

I have seen some pretty fun things to do on Groupon-Things To Do. Laser tag, cruises, fishing, paintballing, and more. I am a huge fan of paintballing actually and have been to a fair few paintballing parties. I always have so much fun! I have even worked out the best paintball guns to use and I think this gives me an advantage. Do you like paintballing? Let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear some of your paintballing strategies.

Many times with a group or even solo, activities can end up costing a good amount, but with Groupon it is much more affordable! A friend of mine has used Groupon to take a yoga class, canvas people, and even do laser hair removal. Not sure that last one is very fun, but hey if that is something you may way to do then check out Groupon.

Even while traveling if you decided you want to take part in the local deals where you are visiting then why not? You can do some cool local activities like a dinner cruise, whale watching, or a fun game of mini golf. You may even be able to find some sightseeing tours, check out the local nightlife, or attend an event. Whatever you may decide to do check out Groupon for ideas and to keep some money in your pocket.

So next time you are looking for something fun to do locally and save some money, check out Groupon!

    Groupon deals are awesome and save quite a bit of money. Wish we had it here.

  • Eva

    I haven’t used groupon for travel yet, but I did just get a sweet pair of headphones to “share” with my son. Groupon is the place to be!

    • Holly

      That is awesome. What kind of headphones did you get? You don’t have to just use it for travel, but to do things locally with your son.

  • Latoya Scott

    I haven’t used Groupon in a while. I hear a lot of people saving money on kid friendly activities and for self-care. I’ll have to check out what they are offering for my area and do something nice for the kids this fall.

    • Holly

      Yes there are so many local activities you can do and save some money for something else. Look into it. I saw some fun things I would do myself.

  • Cleverly Changing (@Cleverlychangin)

    I need to check out their deals for a cruise. I really want to go somewhere special and warm when it’s cold where I live. Sometimes we can really get lucky and find some amazing deals when we book in advance. Timing is the key.

    • Holly

      Yes timing is key. I am sure you will find something, especially if you book before it actually gets really cold and everyone is trying to run from it.

  • KenyaRae

    I don’t use it nearly as much as I should, because I get in trouble and do not know how to exercise self control, and I get put on adult punishment. But i love groupon, absolutely love it!

    • Holly

      Aww lol I understand. That is funny though.

  • MUAKimPorter

    I am always perusing Groupon for things to do or for a service. I haven’t used them for travel.

    • Holly

      It is great for things to do. I have seen some things I didn’t even know about.

  • Mimi Green

    I’m all about that Groupon life and even more so when I’m seeking out activities.

    • Holly

      Seeking out activities on there is such a great idea. Especially when you are trying to find something to do.

  • Jo

    I love Groupon for pretty much everything. lol I haven’t used it for travel outside of NYC, but it came in handy for paint nights and haircare services.

    • Holly

      You don’t have to just use it for travel outside of NYC. That is why I pointed out doing things locally and having fun doing things like you mentioned…paint nights and such.

  • Katherine G

    I love Groupon. We have found some great things on there. I often check there before doing anything.

    • Holly

      They have some pretty cool things on Groupon!

  • Natalie

    What a great idea. I have never tried groupon but need to! You have inspired me!!

    • Holly

      So glad to hear that. I hope it works well for you and you find some fun things to do.

  • Evan Kristine

    I’ve used Groupon to get deals from spa’s and hotels but never really for anything else 😀

  • Evan Kristine

    I really never used groupon as it looked really fake to me but perhaps some other time!

    • Holly

      What makes it seem fake? It really helps with saving money.

  • Evan Kristine

    This looks cool. I’ll try it one day!

    • Holly Dayz

      Could save you some money for something else.

  • Naomi

    I once signed up for the Roman Groupon but non of the deals seemed to match my plans. Then.. I couldn’t unsubscribe anymore so I kept getting 3 emails a-day until I finally found the unsubscribe button in Italian. Oepssiiee

    • Holly Dayz

      Aww I am glad you finally found it. Maybe when you visit somewhere else it may prove to be more useful to you.

  • PriVin

    Thanks for these tips… Love using Groupon for local eats.

    • Holly Dayz

      That I haven’t tried..local eats…will look into that thank you.

  • Jonna

    I’ve done boat cruises, paint nite, and concerts using Groupon. I always check there before doing activities, and sometimes I find out about fun things to do that I didn’t know about just checking Groupon.

    • Holly Dayz

      Oh awesome I need to try some of those activities.

  • Vyjay Rao

    We have used Groupon a couple of times for some activities and have found them to be cost effective, However as the accountability with the specific vendor, it would be advisable to check out reviews of the activities beforehand.

    • Holly Dayz

      It is always a good thing to check reviews for things.

  • Tami

    Groupon has seriously changed my world with discounts on restaurants, getaways, hotel stays, recreational activities, even every day items I need. We use Groupon for gifting and for exploring, too. My husband just gave me three birthday presents, all purchased through Groupon. We are total fans!
