There is almost nothing more iconicly American than a good old fashioned county or State Fair. Fairs originally held to celebrate the harvest, have grown into enormously popular annual events. For couples on a budget and last-minute vacationers, state fairs offer great, affordable dining and entertainment close to home.
There are usually lots of activities for kids, including rides, games, a petting zoo, pony rides, magic shows and live music. Fairs also tradionally feature rides for all ages, and often there is a discount for all day bracelets.
There is also tons of food and drinks to buy, like funnel cakes, fried Oreos, burgers, sausage and homemade lemonade.
Check out when and where there is a local state or county Fair in your area.
