Escaping the Heat

Summer is upon us, and the sun is out. The heat can fluctuate, but it’s generally going to be hot — and specifically here in Chandler, it’s often as hot as 105 at this time of year! This week on the Liv Avenida Blog, we’ll share with you some tips and ways to beat the Arizona heat.

Hit the Pool

What better way to cool off than by taking a dip in the pool? Spending a day near the water is a good way to stave off the heat. If it starts to get too unbearable outside, you can just jump into the refreshing water! Don’t forget to prepare for a day at the pool by packing sunscreen, towels, and an emergency first-aid kid (just in case).

Go to the Movies 

Have you ever been to a movie theater in the summer? Not only is it a great way to spend an afternoon during the heat of the day, but it’s also typically well air conditioned! Rather than trying to brave the heat and do an activity outdoors, take some time to go to a film you haven’t yet seen.

Grab Some Ice Cream

If you need something to take your mind off the heat, head to a local Baskin Robbins or Cold Stone Creamery to snag yourself a delicious frozen treat! From shakes to cones, you can find something to enjoy that will hit the spot. Pick from dozens of flavors and combinations to create your perfect dessert! Getting ice cream is a great idea because it will cool you down from the inside. Just watch out for a brain freeze!

Stay Inside

Even though summer is usually a time to get out of your apartment and do things, there are still times when it’s just too hot to go outside. Turn up the air conditioning, throw on a movie, or invite some friends over and gather around the table for a board game. There are plenty of things that can be done while staying in; you could enjoy yourself, or you could take advantage of some extra time to be productive by doing some cleaning. Either way, if you’re sick of the heat, staying in can be beneficial.
