stay cool in summer

A couple of years ago, I wrote a piece about things you could do to beat the heat on a budget. Now that summer’s here again, I’d like to take that list a step further and give you a list of places you can go to get out of the heat that won’t cost a fortune. If you don’t have air conditioning or if you’re tired of staying at home but want to go somewhere that won’t break your budget, here are some ideas.

    I love the library on hot days, and really any day. The only problem I have is that ours gets really crowded so I have to get there early on those hot days. Otherwise, it’s a day of bliss reading to my heart’s content :)

    We generally go to the mountains when it gets too hot. A nice picnic by an alpine lake refreshes you easily. Or we just close all windows to insulate the house the best we can.

    If you stay at home, keeping curtains closed on windows where the sun is beating in can keep your house a lot cooler. it’s simple and makes a huge difference.

    Anything activity or place with some water is pretty much a go-to zone in the hot weather :) Cool down literally! Additionally, a hammock on the backyard and a great book is an awesome way to while the hot afternoons away.

    I love the local fountains in front of our library. It’s a double win to keep cool. Spend half the day in the library reading books and working on the computer, then we can come out and let the kids play in the fountain outside in the afternoon.
