Here’s my complete list of ways to keep cool with the kids around here today!
This weather! I’m used to putting this post up in August, but yeah-this seems a little early! Anyone else thinking of getting AC?
Anyway, whether you’re too hot in Tacoma, sizzling in Sumner, or Overheating in Olympia-well, you get the idea…..I’m here to help!
Here is my list of readers’ favorite ice cream and cool treat spots. We’re fans of Menchies, and Puyallup fav, Elements. My oldest says he likes the atmosphere at Black Bear best. Yes, he really said that…..I know! Ice Cream Social on 6th Avenue in Tacoma is also amazing.
Check out a beach with sand! Bring your toys! Do note we suggest you stick to wading. Though the air is hot, the water will still be very cold and can be dangerous this time of year. Use your best judgement!
You can also check out one of these great kid friendly beaches!
Cool off by a nearby lake! Please note lifeguards will not be on duty, and cold water can be very dangerous. Maybe wade?
You may even want to escape to the movie theater and catch a cheap kids movie, because they have AC!
Or, how about an indoor play area? Our sponsors at WiggleWorks in Puyallup and Trampoline Nation in Federal Way want to welcome you to play in their fully air conditioned facilities! Check out our many other indoor play options!
Most museums have AC. Libraries have AC….and, finally….here is my list of South Sound malls with play areas. Because, let’s face it, you might be that desperate!
