1. Go shopping.

How fun would this be?!

When it comes to things to do for your 20th birthday it does not need to cost money to enjoy the day! 

You can go shopping and spend money on yourself as opposed to spending on dinner or an extra party.

2. Take a trip to the beach.

Go to the beach!

How many times have you been unsure what to do for your birthday?

If you are lucky enough to have a birthday around the warmer weather than take a drive to the beach with friends. This is a cheap 20th birthday idea, but one of my favorite activities.

3. Go on a trip with friends.

Going on a trip with friends sets you up with days of memories and celebrations.

I went to Washington for my 20th birthday and it was amazing.

4. Go to a concert.

Go to a concert!

Concerts are such a fun idea and you do not need to be front row to have a great time.

Some of the most popular concert artist right now are Luke Bryan, Jonas brothers(I know!!) and Ariana Grande.

5. Go to a nice dinner.

This is an obvious thing to do on your 20th birthday but so much fun.

Check out all the top places to eat around you, and have a great intimate time with your friends.

6. Have a girls pamper night.

If you are not a crazy birthday person, then this is the perfect 20th birthday idea for you.

Go to the store and grab some face masks, nail polish, and maybe some pizza and have a girls night!

Some of my favorite memories are just relaxing with my friends and talking.

7. Take a road trip.

Invite your friends on a road trip!

You can enjoy spending time with them and celebrating your big day!

Plus, you can make some great memories, listen to some great music, and escape from school or work for the day.

8. Hotel Party.

Rent a hotel room and have a hotel party!

This can make for some crazy times because a bunch of friends in a hotel makes for some serious girl talks and pampering.

Splitting the cost of a hotel room among friends can make it really reasonably priced.

9. Party with friends.

This is the most basic idea BUT...

This is such an easy idea but can be so much fun!

Invite some of your friends over and have some fun. This is a great 20th birthday party idea that is cheap!

Have a great time listening to music and skating around with friends.

Bringing the people you love with be so much fun, and you can grab some dinner before or after!

This is another great cheap idea to celebrate your 20th birthday where you can make for a fun time on a budget.

Going camping with your friends is so much and can lead to memories you will remember forever.

12. Take a cooking class.

See if there are any local cooking classes you can go to.

You are now 20 so girl you need to get your cooking skills up!

These are usually reasonably priced, and can benefit you in the long run.

13. Go the spa.

Need I say more?!

Spa days are the best and exactly how I would want to spend my 20th birthday.

 I know it's not a wild 21st birthday BUT... A spa day is amazing!

A spa day is also a great relaxer from work or school.

14. Have a themed party.

A themed party is so much and can lead to some really creative costumes.

The best themed parties I have seen: 1920s, Vine themed, and Hawaiian themed. 

Whats great is Amazon has sop many theme party idea supplies for cheap!

15. Go on a mini dinner cruise.

Rent a boat and go on a dinner cruise  with all your closest friends.

You can feel boujee for the night and I guarantee this is something ALL your friends will always remember.

16. Have a photo shoot.

Invite your friends over and take cute Instagram pictures together.

I know your 20th birthday isn't as exciting as your 21st but you can still have a fun time taking great instagram pictures if you are into social media.

17. Go to an over 18 night club.

Over 18 clubs are real!!

You can go have a great time at a club without being 21!

these are super fun, you can dance have dinner, etc..
