ATLANTA -

Are you sticking to a tight budget and looking for something to do? A tour at the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta might be just the thing for you.

The Fed provides free tours of their facility Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m.

The Federal Reserve might not sound like the most exciting vacation plan, but their Atlanta facility offers a very hands-on tour.

During the tour you will be shown various types of antiquated currency, get to hold real gold bricks and be shown how to spot counterfeit money. You will also be shown the bank's vault and the cash processing area where you will see money being counted, sorted and destroyed.

Individuals or groups of fewer than ten people may participate in self-guided tours of the Visitors Center and Monetary Museum from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Self-guided tours are limited to visiting the Visitors Center and Monetary Museum and do not need to be scheduled.

    The notion of 'Keeping up with the Jones' is not new, but there is a new pressure coming at you. Peer pressure - whether you're 13 or 33 - is a powerful thing. Now throw in social media and you have what an Atlanta counselor calls 'Keeping up with the Jones' on steroids. And if you're not careful that can get costly.
