High times: Three budget-friendly options
* Fulton County residents have a perk this weekend: free admission to the High Museum every first Saturday of the month. It’s a good time to visit the museum as well. Both the Richard Misrach On the Beach and Monet Water Lilies exhibitions run through Aug. 23.
* Don’t live in Fulton? No worries. It’s half-off museum admission on Thursday nights between 4-8 p.m. at the High. Tickets are $9.
* I told you about the Bank of America partnership with local museums. This gives you yet another option for free admission to the High, as well as the Atlanta History Museum, Fernbank, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Atlanta Zoo and Millennium Gate. The first full weekend of every month — the Saturday and Sunday fall on the 1st and 2nd of the month as August does this weekend — Bank of America customers get in free to these locations after presenting their ATM card, credit card or check card, along with a valid ID
