Update-The health department is currently advising folks to stay indoors because of the air quality. I’ll let you decide on that for yourself.
This list is primarily outdoors-y. We’ll round up some indoor cool spots in a bit!
Here’s my complete list of ways to keep cool with the kids around here today! We’ve got round ups of places to swim, places to splash, parks with shade, and much more!
As always, we urge caution around water……I know….another thing I didn’t really need to say! 🙂 Have a great one!
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.
You can also check out one of these great kid friendly beaches!
Cool off by a nearby lake!-Please be cautious if you let kids swim, as water will be VERY cold.
Or, how about an indoor play area? Our sponsors at WiggleWorks in Puyallup welcome you to play in their fully air conditioned facilities-You have just a few more days to grab the Unlimited Summer Play Pass at a very special price just for you! Check out our many other indoor play options!
Most museums have AC. Libraries (when open) have AC….and, finally….here is my list of South Sound malls with play areas. Because, let’s face it, you some little ones don’t do heat!
