My Top 7 Cool Summer Activities

We are already hitting triple digits in my neck of the woods so, naturally, I have been dreaming up ways to stay cool.

The easy thing to do would just be to stay home but that’s not very realistic. So here are 7 ideas for activities to help us beat the heat this summer.

1. Museum – so many options depending on your interest from science and natural history to art

2. Planetarium – escape the heat by taking a trip to the stars

3. Family Entertainment Centers – bowling, arcade games, lazer tag, etc.

4. IMAX – exciting and educational films can be seen on the giant screen

5. Craft Center – classes can be found on everything from everything from pottery painting to cake decorating

6. Water – the most obvious way to stay cool is to find a pool or lake or river or water park or…you get the idea

7. Mall – when all else fails, go to the mall where you’ll find enough shops and restaurants and entertainment to keep you indoors for hours

These are a few ideas off the top of my head. Let me know if you have any to add by leaving your cool comment below. 🙂

Have a great weekend!

Happy Summer!

We’re in the middle of a hot, steamy summer in the south so it’s no wonder I’m drawn to water. I took this picture of a fountain near my home and it positively makes me want to jump in everytime I see it…or any body of water for that matter.

I know some people love the heat. God bless ’em! I can’t say I’ll be joining their party anytime soon. My idea of fun is sitting by the pool under a shady umbrella, sporting a floppy hat and sunglasses and slathered to the gills in sunscreen with my tiny portable fan close by (just in case).

Care to join me?

Happy summer everyone!
