WALKER, Mich.(WZZM) -- While many people are trying to beat to the heat, they're also trying to do it without breaking the bank.

WZZM 13 On Your Side went in search of options that cost less than $5 a day.

Millennium Park in Walker has become a summer favorite. This year, Keith Nibbelink and his family bought a yearly pass.

"We have three kids and my wife and I," says Nibbelink. "The pass is $50. I think we paid for it our third visit."

If you just want to come to Millennium Park for the day, it would cost $4 for an adult and $2 for a child. It's free for childrenthree and under. The spray park is also included in the admission. That's where Rochelle Brackette was cooling down.

"I just had a fainting spell from being dehydrated and not getting enough fluid," says Brackette. "We're trying to stay cool with water and by getting out in the water."

For people who do not want to be outside, a local ice arena is a possibility. At Walker Ice and Fitness, it's a constant 50 degrees. Don Graham and his son, Nathan enjoyed the cool surroundings there Thursday.

"It's really hot outside, so we thought why not come-in here where it's really cool," says Graham.

The open skate prices are $4 for adults and $3 for students.

If ice skating's not your thing, how about a movie? The movies at Celebration Cinema at Woodland Mall are second-run movies. Ticket prices are $3.99 for adults and children. It will cost extra if you want some snacks.

"We contemplated the pool, but it's just been way to hot for us to do," says moviegoer Darrell Kingsbury. "We come and spend a few hours watching a movie."

If you're looking for free activities, some of the area's city parks and splash pads are open to the public. Also, local libraries and malls are options to beat the heat.
