Summer Activities on a Budget

Summer is well underway, which if you’re lucky, means that you have a little more free time. If you’ve found yourself in this position and catch yourself thinking “Well, what the heck am I going to do all summer?” or “I can’t afford anything off the dollar menu, let alone any fun activities,” worry not, we’ve got a couple of (discounted) ideas for you.

What you’ll want to do is head over to this link and log in with your EUID and password. It’s the Dallas-Fort Worth activity resource page we’ve compiled especially for UNT students. If you want to manually find it, go to the UNT Union home page under the Student Affairs website and click on “Perks” under the “Things to Do” tab (pro tip: you can also find fun on-campus activities under the “Things to Do” tab, ranging from UPC and Fine Arts Events to various jazz shows in the Syndicate).

But without further ado, here are some highlights from the DFW Perks page:

Six Flags

That’s right, we’ve got Six Flags tickets at a discounted rate. Type in the provided username and password to access different ticket options. Hurricane Harbor is also included in this deal if you want to splash around and cool off in this Texas heat.

Rangers Baseball

It’s still early in the game, but you don’t want to be struggling for ideas of what to do this summer in the Bottom of the 9th. Get ahead with less expensive Rangers tickets, available on the Perks page. Follow the link and use the code given in the description to plan a knock out evening.


If baseball really isn’t your thing though, we also have discounted FC Dallas tickets available on the Perks page as well. And trust us, they’re good seats.


Let’s face it. It’s hot outside and it’s only going to get warmer. If you want to avoid the Texas heat, then why not go see a movie? We have the DL on the best priced movies around Denton. This includes:

  • Cinemark
  • Movie Tavern
  • Silver Cinemas (the Dollar Theater located in the Golden Triangle Mall)

Catch up on the movies you might’ve missed during the busy semester. Grab us some popcorn, we’ll see you there!



If you’re looking for an art and culture filled summer, you’re in luck because we also have A LOT of museum perks available to UNT students!  Here are the museums we have discounts for:

  • Dallas Museum of Art- Special Exhibits
  • Nasher Sculpture Center
  • Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
  • Dallas Holocaust Museum
  • African American Museum of Dallas at Fair Park
  • The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

Take some time this summer and immerse yourself in something that can expand your mind. Keep in mind, museums have air conditioning too 🙂


So now that you’ve got all this extra free time, you can’t really say “Oh, I would love to workout, I just don’t have the time!” …Right? Well, if you’re feeling up to pumping some iron or running a few miles, we’ll help give you a little extra motivation. We’ve got discounted deals on all of the following:

  • Twisted Bodies Pilates and Yoga
  • Crossfit Denton
  • Karma Yoga
  • CrossFit 940

  • University Lanes Bowling
  • Rusty Taco
  • Fort Worth Zoo
  • Cafe Brazil
  • Bullseye Bike Shop
