Temperatures throughout the Bay Area have been exceptionally high this week. Authorities are urging people to take precautions as heat indexes reach triple digits in some parts. Here are 7 of my tips on how to stay cool in the Bay Area during these hot summer days.
We also have some more low-key playgrounds with water features such as Maria B. Freitas Park in San Rafael to help kids stay cool.
Coast redwoods keep the land below nice and cool too. The creek next to the Mill Valley Library is my favorite to splash about.
Libraries & Bookstore are Cool
Not only are libraries and bookstores cool, they are also quiet. Peruse through this list of Local Authors For Your Summer Reading List by Book Passage and Kids Summertime Reading List and get your reading organized for a great summer.
Hit the Ice
Don’t have a Salchow, man. It may be hot outside but it's the perfect temperature to ice skate in the Bay Area. Glide on over to Yerba Buena, San Francisco's premier Ice Skating and Bowling Center open daily.
