Things to do to Stay Cool in Phoenix during the Summer

Phoenix is a fantastic city, but it can be a bit unbearable in the summer. With temperatures that reach as high as 115°F, Phoenix has some very hot summer months that remind you that it is truly in the desert. Fortunately, it is a relatively dry heat, and the city has a number of attractions to distract from the heat during these scorching summer months.

Watch A Baseball Game

Phoenix is home to the Arizona Diamondbacks, a professional baseball based in Phoenix. The Diamondbacks are in the Western division of the National League, and are having a pretty good season. The Diamondbacks are currently third place in their division, but just four games back from the division’s leading team, the San Francisco Giants. As playoffs come closer, the Diamondbacks are an exciting team to watch. Plus, Chase Field offers air conditioning and an excellent cooling system for games during the hot summer months!

Check Out The Heard Museum

The Heard Museum is another excellent way to have fun in the Phoenix summer. The Heard Museum is a great way to learn about the Native Peoples of Phoenix. It has a number of interesting exhibits, including some that feature American Indian art, with a number of changing speakers, films, lectures, and events.

Go To A Water Park

When the sun is out, what better way is there to keep cool than to go to a water-park? Phoenix is home to Arizona’s largest water-park, Wet’n’Wild Phoenix. This park offers a number of rides for both water-park adventurers, as well as the whole family. Mammoth Falls includes a riveting 57 foot drop, while Wet’n’Wild Jr offers a mini-water-park with smaller rides perfect for kids.

Enjoy the Arizona Science Museum

The Arizona Science Museum is a great way to let your inner child explore all kinds of gadgets and gizmos. The museum includes an IMAX theater, a planetarium, and a number of exciting exhibits. From July 8 to September 3 there is a featured exhibit designed to make math come alive, so take your young children to keep them interested in math and science!

These are just a few cool ways to spend time during the summer heat in Phoenix, Arizona. But this is only the beginning. Phoenix is the sixth most populous city in the United States with a virtually unlimited number of things to do. So get started exploring the city today!
