Looking for something fun to do at nighttime that doesn’t cost you a lot of money?
We all like things to do that are free! And thankfully, there are a lot of things you can do for free that are also fun, adventurous and some even downright crazy (but in a good way!)
Well, we’ve got you covered. In today’s post, I’m going to cover 70 fun things to do for free at night!
If you’re on a strict budget, maybe you’re saving money to get out of debt or to make a big purchase, you don’t want to have to spend a ton of money on entertainment.
No matter where you live though, you can always find something that’s fun and free to do.
Note: During this Coronavirus lockdown when we’re all bored out of our minds and many of us have less money coming in, finding fun things to do for free with kids, family, friends and even neighbors (while practicing social distancing) can be a huge morale boost. I hope this post will help you with entertaining you and your loved ones without having to worry about spending money. Obviously, some of the ideas mentioned here are not practical during these crazy times where we are all locked down because of the COVID-19.

Fun Things to Do at Night at Home
Here are a few totally free things you can at home with family.
1. Enjoy a movie night
Staying in and watching a movie is one of my favorite things to do.
Since movie theaters can get expensive, it’s a great alternative. You could watch new releases or revisit old favorites and classic movies, like Back to the Future, or the Lord of the Rings.
You could even have a themed movie night, where you watch only horror movies or comedies for example. Pick up some snacks and you have yourself a fun night with your immediate family or even invite some friends and family over to join you.
2. Learn a Language
Whether it’s Spanish or Japanese, Mandarin or German, learning a language can be a super fun way to spend an evening at home. It’s rewarding and knowing a second language always comes in handy. And with so many awesome free language learning apps like Duolingo and Hello Talk, it’s easier than ever to learn a new language.
3. Create a list of goals
Making goals can be so exciting. Whether you want to write a book, get fitter, travel more, or pay down your debts, make a list of your goals. You can make a plan for how you’re going to achieve them. This is something you can do with your spouse as well.
4. Get a “Degree”
Many universities like MIT and Yale offer free college courses by posting their course materials online for free.
This means that you can basically do a degree course at no cost. You don’t get the actual course credit or degree at the end though. But you still get the valuable knowledge from the course and you don’t have to part with any of your hard-earned cash to do so.
Here are a few places to find free courses from universities:
- MIT offers course content through OpenCourseWare, which you can check out here.
- You can also get free introductory courses from Yale here.
- org offers free courses from tons of well-known universities, which you can check out here.
5. Have a board game night
Whether it’s Monopoly or Clue, playing board games can be a fun and competitive way to spend an evening.
6. Listen to/watch TED Talks
Listening to TED Talks is a great way to learn about new things. And there are plenty of them to dig through on YouTube. It’s a fun and educational way to spend an evening.
7. Read eBooks
There are millions of free eBooks available online. This means reading is a great free activity to do during the nighttime. Plus it’s so relaxing!
Here are a few great sites for finding free eBooks:
8. Make some extra cash with rewards websites
Okay, so there are lots of fun ways to spend an evening, but this one also makes you money.
Rewards websites will give you points (or money from the outset) for you doing easy tasks, like:
- Taking quizzes.
- Searching the internet
- Shopping online
- Watching videos
- Playing games
- Completing offers
You can then exchange your points for money to your PayPal account or on a Visa or MasterCard.
Or you can get a gift card to retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Starbucks, Steam, and Target.
Here are some rewards sites to join:
9. Take Online Surveys
Taking online surveys is another free thing you can do at night. Not only is it free, but it also makes you money too.
Yes, survey sites value your opinion and are willing to pay you for your opinion.
Here are a few survey sites to join:
- Vindale Research
- Pinecone Research
- Darwin’s Data
- Google Opinion Rewards
- Ipsos i-Say
- Survey Junkie
It’s a good idea to sign up for multiple survey sites, because you won’t qualify for every survey. So you’ll have more surveys that you qualify for if you’re signed up to multiple survey sites and more opportunities to make money!
10. Listen to Music
Listening to music doesn’t have to cost you anything and it’s a fun and relaxing way to spend an evening.
You can discover new favorites and listen to old ones, make your own playlists, and chat about your favorite songs to your spouse, friends or family.
I love to listen to Spotify because I can keep up to date with when my favorite bands release their new music and I can make playlists too.
The Spotify app is free, but if you want to be able to skip stuff, you need the paid version. There’s a 30-day free trial available. But after that it costs $9.99 a month.
Spotify isn’t your only choice either. There are plenty of other places where you can listen to music for free, such as:
- Amazon Music Unlimited
- TuneIn Radio
Amazon Music Unlimited offers a free trail for three months, which is pretty impressive. After that it costs $7.99 a month.
Also, if you don’t want to download music, check out this list of sites to listen to music without downloading.
So start enjoying some free music!
11. Binge watch your favorite TV show or movie series
I have to admit I’m one of those people who has to watch the next episode of something to find out what happens next; even if it’s midnight!
If you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy an evening of binge watching your favorite TV show (some of my favorites are Dark, Once Upon a Time, Justified, You, and Grimm). Thanks to sites like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, all of which have a free trial period, by the way, binge watching stuff has never been easier.
I also enjoy rewatching classic shows like Friends.
Don’t forget that it’s not just TV shows that you can marathon watch. No, you can also binge watch movies series’ too, like the Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Star Wars, Scream, Halloween, and Indiana Jones.
12. Play an instrument
Whether it’s the guitar, flute, piano, or drums, there are lots of instruments you can learn. And aside from the initial cost of the instrument, learning can be entirely free.
Thanks to the internet, you no longer have to pay for expensive music lessons. Instead you can learn from free online tutorials and YouTube videos. That’s pretty great.
Not only is learning to play an instrument a fun way to spend the evening, it’s also incredibly rewarding.
13. Learn to Sing
Learning to sing is something a lot of people want to do. But, again they think they have to pay for expensive lessons. Well, you can actually learn to sing at home for free.
Just learn from these articles from the BBC on how to sing.
14. Listen to Podcasts
There are tons of free podcasts out there. The best part is they cover so many different topics. So you’re sure to find one you like. You can keep up with current events, learn about true crime, listen to comedians or even learn a new language.
15. Have a game night
I mentioned earlier that playing board games is a great way to spend an evening. But there are other games you can play too.
Consider hosting a game night that includes a few friends or family members. You could play charades, Scattergories, a card game, or Pictionary.
Whatever it is, you’re sure to have a lot of fun and bringing out people’s competitive side is always sure to entertain.
16. Enjoy an at-home spa evening
Going to the spa is expensive. But you can recreate the experience at home. It’s not only cheaper, but it’s also even more relaxing because you’re in your own home.
Here are a few things you can do during an at-home spa evening:
- Gather your favorite nail polish colors and do mani-pedis
- Mix coconut oil and sugar to make an at-home exfoliator.
- Make your own face mask or buy one for a low price at Target, Walmart, or Amazon.
You can also search online for more at-home spa ideas. You can even add in tea, juice and a few light snacks to make your at-home spa evening complete!
17. Have an at-home sports watching night
Spend an evening watching sports with friends. If you already have the sports package with your cable or satellite package, then invite some friends over to watch TV with you. Add in some chips and burgers on the grill to make the night complete.
Also, read my post offering 11 Ways to Watch NFL Games for Free (without Cable) here if you don’t have the sports package.
18. Make a themed list and work on it
Make a themed list and then work through it!
You could create a list of the books Stephen King’s written and work through them (it takes a while, trust me!)
Or you could make a list of all the movies Martin Scorsese has directed and then watch those movies one by one.
It’s a fun exercise and it’s free!
19. Start on your Christmas gift giving list
I love Christmastime and one of my favorite parts of the holiday is gift-giving. Sure getting gifts is nice but giving them is even better I think. So a fun way to spend an evening is to start making a list of gift-giving ideas for Christmas.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s January 1st or December 1st, there’s never a bad time to start making your list of gift-giving ideas for Christmas.
Plus, if you make a start on your list early, you can start saving for the gifts early and get more items on sale or from the clearance section.
Also, you can listen for hints or ideas from your friends and family and then add that gift idea to the list.
You can also plan Christmas activities so for next Christmas, you are prepared. Here’s a list of awesome free things to do for Christmas.
20. Make some freezer meals
Use an evening to organize your life a little and save time by making some freezer meals. Basically, you shop for ingredients to make a few meals in advance and then freeze them to eat at a later date.
I love freezing meals because it means that on those nights that my husband and I can’t be bothered cooking, I can just take something out of the freezer and warm it up! It saves me wasting money on takeout and it’s healthier too! Soups, stews, and curries all freeze well.
Spend an evening reminiscing by looking at pictures, watching videos or talking about memories. Or you could reminisce in your neighborhood or town by walking around and visiting the places that hold special memories for you.
22. Read a book from the library
Rather than visiting a bookstore, take a trip to your local library. You can check out books to read at home. And there are plenty to choose from.
There are also books on CDs and DVDs you can rent out for free. Libraries usually have one or two days a week when they’re open during evening hours. Some libraries have free classes and workshops on offer too.
And if you don’t want to go to the library, bring the library to you. Here’s how!
23. Have a puzzle night
Why not spend an evening putting together a large puzzle. It offers hours of entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. Putting together puzzles is a pretty relaxing activity too. Put together a large 500-piece or more puzzle for hours of fun with your family.
24. Organize a room
We all have that room in our home that’s a total disaster! So spend an evening organizing that room. Or maybe it’s just a drawer or a closet that’s gotten a little out of hand. Whatever it is, take some time to organize an area or a room in your home.
There are tons of organization videos on YouTube too! It’s a pretty cathartic activity.
25. Rearrange a room
Sometimes a room just isn’t laid out as well as it could be. A good way to spend an evening at home is just reorganizing that room that just needs a bit of improvement. So rearrange the furniture and decorative pieces, and it makes your home look better and almost makes it feel as though you’ve got a new room in your house!
26. Declutter your home (and make money from it!)
A while back I decluttered a closet in my bedroom and got rid of lots of things. What was taking up the most room though was a box of DVDs. It was just sat in the back of the closet. The thing was I didn’t really watch many of them anymore. So I took out the ones I did watch and instead of throwing out the rest, I decided to sell them. And not in a yard sale!
Websites like Decluttr make selling your unwanted stuff easy. Just get a quote for your stuff on the website, mail your stuff to the company, and you get paid. It’s that simple. I made a $100 just from two small boxes of games, books, and DVDs.

27. Have a night of playing video games (and get the family involved)
Whether it’s Minecraft, Skyrim, Gears of War, or new releases, there are plenty of awesome Xbox and PlayStation games you can spend the night playing.
My husband and I often spend evenings playing video games and find that it’s a great way to bond and even bring out each other’s competitive side!
28. Make a playlist of throwback songs
I love to make playlists on Spotify. I just find it relaxing. Another thing to consider though is making a playlist full of throw-back songs. Maybe you could make a list of songs you used to listen to when you were in college or songs you enjoyed a few summers back. Whatever it is, spend an evening creating a playlist of throwback songs and have fun listening to them!
29. Have an indoor picnic
When you can’t go outside, have a picnic in the house! Put a blanket on the floor, get some of your favorite picnic foods and drinks, and enjoy a picnic from the comfort of your home.
30. Create your own wine tasting
You don’t even need to leave the house to do a wine tasting. You can do one right from your home.
Just look online for well-reviewed wines or visit a local wine store and ask for recommendations. Once you have your wines, you can set up your own wine tasting, and enjoy an evening of drinking with your spouse, friend, or family member, or even on your own!
31. Make your own bread
Few things smell better than bread baking.
Freshly baked bread is also one of the tastiest things around too. You don’t even need a bread-maker to do it either. Just knead the bread with your hands, the old-fashioned way.
32. Start or join a fantasy sports league
Whether it’s soccer, basketball or baseball, consider joining or setting up a fantasy sports league. It’s doesn’t cost you anything and it’s a fun way to spend an evening. You can easily start a free fantasy sports league for you and your friends or family by going to ESPN, Yahoo! Sports, or CBS Sports. It’ll encourage plenty of discussion between your friends and family as the season unfolds.
33. Teach yourself how to juggle
Juggling is fun and it always impresses whoever’s watching. Not to mention what it can do for your hand-eye coordination! It’s cheap too. Once you have something to juggle with in fact it’s free. All you need is three balls and an instructional video, which you can find plenty of online, to show you how to it. From there you just need plenty of practice. Being able to juggle always wins a smile.
34. Teach yourself how to knit
Since wool isn’t too expensive, and neither are knitting needles, and there are lots of free knitting patterns and tutorials available online, knitting can be a fun and inexpensive way to spend an evening. Plus you can add what you make to your closet, whether that’s a sweater or a scarf. You could also knit throws, pillow covers and other decorative items for your home. When the holidays or birthdays come around, you could give your stuff away as gifts too.
35. Learn and practice Origami
Looking for a relaxing way to spend an evening? Give origami a try. The art of Japanese paper folding is a super relaxing way to spend an evening. And you only need paper to do it making it a cheap hobby! You can learn the art of Origami online too. There are plenty of free videos available on YouTube.
36. Chat with your family in front of a roaring fire
On a cold evening, there’s nothing better than chatting to your spouse and family in front of a fire. It’s cozy, relaxing, and it’s free.
37. Make a time capsule
Creating a time capsule that you open up years later is a fun way to spend an evening.
Gather up items that represent your present – it could be a newspaper, recent photographs, greeting cards, receipts, or even last week’s grocery shopping list. You could even make a video of you and your family and put it on a flash drive for your future selves to watch. Put these items in a box and then write a date on the side of when you plan to open the box. This could be 5 years from now or 15 years from now.
38. Digitize your old photos
If you have some old photo albums and prints in your home, consider spending the night digitizing them. You can do this by scanning them into your computer if you have a scanner.
Or you can take a photo of them using your phone. You’ll have a backup copy of your precious photos!
39. Practice yoga
Yoga is one of those activities that suits all fitness levels and it’s pretty relaxing too. Not to mention it’s incredibly beneficial to your flexibility and mobility, both of which are important for your health, especially as you get older.
All you need to get started is a little floor space and something that offers a soft surface, like a blanket, carpet, or yoga mat which you can pick up for around $10. There are plenty of articles online that teach you how to do yoga poses and instructional yoga videos too.
40. Review books
Reviewing books is a great way to spend an evening if you’re an avid reader. Authors need people like you to review their books. It helps authors to sell more copies and gives them feedback on their work.
You get a free book out of it and the author gets your feedback, so it’s a win-win.
Usually you get a digital book for free.
So you can spend your evenings reading books and writing reviews.
Here are a few places that offer free books in exchange for reviews:
41. Discover your family tree
Discovering your family tree can be a lot of fun. I started on mine a while back and only stopped because I just don’t have the time to do it anymore. If you do though, I’d highly recommend it. Researching takes time if you’re not using a paid service, as I wasn’t, but when you find something about a relative that you didn’t even know about it’s exciting. Finding out where you family comes from can be a fun, exciting, and insightful experience.
Ancestry.com is a good starting point, although Ancestry.com only offers a free trial and you’ll have to pay for it once that ends. Your local library, census records, and birth certificates, if you can get your hands on copies of them, are all good starting points. You can check out this list for the best genealogy websites for beginners.
Also, just consider asking your parents, grandparents and any of your relatives about their family. You’d be surprised what you can find out. My husband mentioned to his Mom that he was putting together a family tree. She mentioned it to another relative who then handed her a ton of helpful information including marriage certificates.
It’s a nice way to spend an evening, like an amateur detective uncovering your family’s roots!
42. Build a blanket fort
Build a giant blanket fort in the living room. It’s something that you can enjoy, something your kids can enjoy if you have any and well it’s just a way to spice up an otherwise dull evening. Use chairs, blankets, and tables to make a hidden structure. You can ensconce yourself in there, read play, games and just enjoy yourself.
Consider building two forts on opposite sides of the room and have “fort wears” where you toss small pillows back and forth – it doesn’t cost you anything but it’s a fun way to spend the night.
43. Make homemade gifts
Some people like homemade gifts because they find them to be more personal and thoughtful. If you have any friends or relatives who enjoy getting handmade gifts, then spend an evening making them. Pour yourself a drink, put on some music and get to making gifts, whether it’s for the holidays or a birthday.
44. Host a Quiz Night
Host a quiz night regularly with your friends and family! This is such a fun way to spend an evening and you can really bring out each other’s competitive side.
45. Hunt for coupons
Couponing can actually be pretty fun – especially when you think of it as a game where you try to save the most money.
To learn about couponing and where to get your hands on coupons read How to Start Couponing for Beginners: The Ultimate Guide.
And for places to get high value coupons, check out my post 57 Places Where Extreme Couponers Get Their High Value Coupons (Start Saving Big Today!)
Couponing can be a fun way to spend an evening and it saves you money too!
46. Take a long bath
What’s more relaxing than a long bath? Not much. It can relax sore muscles and ease a stressed-out mind. Plus, it doesn’t have to cost you money! Just a little time drawing yourself a bath. You could even read a book and enjoy a glass of wine in the tub.
I can’t draw to save my life. But my husband is a fantastic artist and often spends evenings drawing portraits in charcoal. He uses a pad of newsprint paper that costs less than $10 and you get a 100 or more pages!
The charcoal costs just a couple of dollars too. So this is a really cheap hobby and even if you aren’t great at drawing it’s a relaxing way to spend an evening.
And with practice and the tutorials you can find for free online these days, you’re sure to create some great artwork.
48. Creative Writing
Creative writing, whether it’s a novel or a poem is such a fun activity to spend an evening on. I love to enjoy a glass of wine while writing a story. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and even if you’re not the best writer in the world (and I’m sure you’re better than you think you are!) you can still have fun with it.
49. Learn a card trick
Knowing a card trick is one of those things that always impresses people. So why not learn one? You can learn card tricks for free online nowadays and a deck of cards won’t cost you much either.
50. Plan next year’s vacation
I enjoy reading lists about the best cities in Europe. Maybe you prefer a sandy beach? Whatever it is, planning and researching next year’s vacation can be very fun.
You can research places you want to go online and then compare prices for airfare and accommodation.
51. Do an “entertainment swap” with friends and family
This is such a fun idea. Basically you and a friend or family member take a collection of your DVDs, CDs, books and video games and trade them temporarily. Choose shows and books, etc. that you think your family member or friend will like.
Not only do you each get new stuff to watch, read, and listen to, but you also have some common interests to talk about!
52. Revisit an old favorite
Maybe it’s a TV show you just loved or a movie that you really enjoyed or a book that you just couldn’t put down – whatever it is, we all have that favorite of ours that just resonates with us. So why not return to it?
Re-watch your favorite TV show or film or re-read your favorite book. You’ll likely find new details and elements that you didn’t notice before. I’ve re-watched TV shows I love and it’s always interesting to see how the story is weaved together now that I already know how it ends.
53. Play Free Games Online
You can play games online for free! It makes for a pretty fun evening!
Here are a few websites that offer free online games:
Fun Things to Do at Night Near Me
Wanna get out of house and do something fun with friends, neighbors and your local community?

54. Tour a winery or brewery
Some breweries and wineries offer free tours. See if there are any in your area that do. It’s a great thing to do for free! And some of them give you free booze to try as well – so it’s a win-win.
55. Look for local events on your community calendar
Most communities publish a calendar of events. You can check this calendar for events that are free. Of course, not all of them will be, but you’re sure to find at least a few evening events near you that are free. This could be comedy shows, farmers’ markets, grand openings, music events, or street fairs.
See what kinds of free events you can find in your town or city.
56. Go to an art gallery opening
Did you know that many art galleries offer free openings and there’s usually free wine or food?
Yes, enjoy free art and food!
Visiting an art gallery can boost your creativity, relax you and well just offer you something a little different to do that doesn’t cost a lot.
57. Hang out at your local bookstore
One of the more relaxing things you can do in an evening is to spend some time at your local bookstore. Many bookstores, especially chain bookstores, like Barnes & Noble are open until pretty late in the evening.
Visit a bookstore, browse the titles and see if you can find a great book to read. It could be an awesome thriller or a book about U.S. history.
Or you could even take your laptop, order a coffee and just chill there. Find a comfy chair, read a book or a magazine, and just enjoy a relaxing evening of reading.
58. Watch a play at a local theater
Many local theaters hold free shows or at the least offer really cheap admission. And you know not all local theater is bad. You’ll be surprised by how entertaining this can be on a Saturday night!
59. Take a long drive
Go on a long driving trip with a friend or even alone and just enjoy the scenery. Plus, since the roads tend to be quieter of a night too, you won’t get stuck in traffic and can instead enjoy a relaxing drive.
Although gas does cost money, it can still be pretty cheap.
60. Organize a neighborhood potluck
Organizing a neighborhood potluck for an evening can be a lot of fun.
You could even turn this into a regular thing and host a potluck evening once a month. It brings the neighborhood together and offers an interactive and fun way to spend the night. Consider having a theme for the potluck too, like Mexican cuisine, or a Meat Lovers Fest.
61. Enjoy a walk downtown
If you live near or in a major metropolitan area, consider taking a walk downtown. Even if you live in a cozy little down, walking downtown can still be a lot of fun – just make sure you only walk at night in safe areas though.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the downtown streets of an evening. The people, the lights, the outdoor music and more – downtown has plenty of sights and sounds to enjoy. And don’t forget to do a little window shopping while you’re there.
62. Visit a friend or family member
Visiting friends and family is something that most of us don’t do often enough. It’s free and it’s a great way to spend an evening. Either stop by as a surprise or call ahead to plan a visit with a family member or friend.
63. Start a Book Club
Another great way to spend an evening if you love to read is by discussing books with friends, family or neighbors! Start your own book club where you invite friends, family or neighbors around to discuss a book that you’ve all read.
You can enjoy snacks and food as well if you want to!
And if you don’t want to start your own book club, consider joining an existing one. You can likely find one near you by searching online.
64. Attend a free community class
Many places offer free classes on the weekends and during weeknights. It could be a cooking class at a local food store or a home repair class at a local hardware store. Home Depot for example offers free DIY classes to kids and adults. Just check for free workshops and classes at your local stores and community centers.
Fun Things to Do at Night Outside
Tired of staying “in” and want to get out but don’t necessarily want to go “out”?
You don’t have to go “out” to have fun. Here are creative and amazing free activities you can do right from your backyard.
65. Gaze at the stars
I’ve always liked looking at the stars. It always makes you think about the universe and it’s relaxing too. If you’re looking for something relaxing to do of a night, I’d highly recommend it.
And if you’d like to learn about the cosmos, download SkyView.
It’s an app that you can use to stargaze. Just install it and point your phone or tablet at the night sky to identify stars, constellations, satellites and more!
Here’s where you can get the SkyView app:
Who says you need a fancy telescope to discover the sky?
66. Enjoy a drink in the backyard
Sometimes just sitting in your own backyard and enjoying some conversation and a few drinks is the best way to spend an evening. If you know what you’re doing and have a safe area away from trees, then you could even make your own bonfire and sit around it.
67. Host an outdoor movie night
I love movies. If you do too, then a super fun way to spend an evening is enjoying a film outside with friends and family.
So pull your TV outback or use a projector and watch movies outside, or if it’s just going to be two of you, then use your laptop.
You could even invite your neighbors – send out invitations and choose movies that suit any audience. Watching movies under the moon and stars is one of the best things to do in an evening! Don’t forget the popcorn!
68. Play an outdoor game/sports with friends
You can play a game like basketball or football outside of an evening. This is a fun way to spend a night with friends or family and it doesn’t have to cost you a cent.
69. Go to a free outdoor concert
Many cities have venues for free outdoor concerts. Just do a search for “free outdoor concerts near me,” to find results for outdoor concerts in your city and town and in surrounding cities and towns as well.
Another thing you can do is search your state’s tourism website for information on free outdoor concerts.
You can find concerts offering everything from blues and jazz to classical music.
70. Camp in your backyard
Going camping can be fun if you enjoy the outdoors. However, it’s not cheap to rent a spot at a state or county campground.
That said, there are also many free camp sites. We have a list of free camping spots near you.
If you’re on a budget, a great alternative is to camp in your own backyard. Set up a tent, get some s’mores fixings and whatever other snacks you like and then just enjoy some time under the stars.
This is something that the whole family can enjoy as well. It’s a fun way to spend an evening and it doesn’t cost you a penny.
