    Atlanta zoo offers free admission for 2 adults and 2 children when you rent or watch the video about ZooAtlanta at any GA library . This is available for any GA resident. If you bring your own food and drinks this is a freat staycation! Also consider becoming a mystery guest. Some theme parks offer free admission for doing a little snooping. I went to Stone Mtn. with 5 other people for free.
