7 Hot Tributes to Cooling off In The Bay Area

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.

You'll be hard pressed to find something more satisfying as a creative project from I Made It Glass! Creations, now with new summer hours.

Visit a Pool or Waterpark

There are no lack of pools and waterparks to take the edge off the Bay Area heat.

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.
