3 Ways to Stay Cool and Have Fun in Metro Detroit

Spending days outside during the summer is wonderful, but those sun-soaked days are no longer so enjoyable when the temperatures are hot. The easiest way to stay cool is to stay at home in your air conditioning, but if you have young children on summer vacation, you know that’s not going to cut it. Here are three ways to stay cool and have fun on those too-hot days in metro Detroit.

Visit a Splash Pad: Splash pads are popping up everywhere! These fun water playgrounds are great for kids that may not be strong swimmers yet, and even older kids enjoy darting in and out of jet streams. The Detroit Moms Blog has a list of great splash pads throughout metro Detroit. They list splash pads by country and include Mt. Elliot Park in Detroit, Heritage Park Splash Pad in Farmington Hills, and City Square Park in Warren. Click on the link below to see all of their recommendations and information about cost and hours.

Head to the Lake: If you have access to a boat to get out on Lake St. Clair- great! There’s nothing like cannonballing into a cold lake when it is 95 degrees out. If you don’t have a way to motor or paddle to the middle of the lake, we recommend the Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township. This park is right along the shoreline of Lake St. Clair, and it includes a beach and pool. Lake St. Clair Metropark.

Catch a movie-Sitting in a cool movie theater while the temperatures blaze outside screams summer. This is a great way to get out of the house but still enjoy to comforts of air conditioning. Metro Parent Daily has a list of some of the best movie theaters in Southeast Michigan:  Top Movie Theaters in Southeast Michigan.

When the days are really hot, staying cool isn’t just about comfort-it is also important for your family’s safety. Young children are especially susceptible to heat. If you are having trouble with your home’s cooling system, do not hesitate to contact FLAME!
