5 Creative Ways to Stay Cool in Phoenix
The key to making the most of a Phoenix summer trip is coming up with enjoyable ways to stay cool. Think this means sitting in a hotel room, AC cranked, all day long? Think again -- we've compiled our favorite ways to beat the heat this summer.
1. Water parks, unique pools and lazy rivers
Who says water parks are just for kids?! It's no surprise that Phoenix is home to some of the best water parks, lazy rivers, and pools -- including many at resorts, like The Wigwam or Arizona Grand Resort (pictured). Grab an inner tube and get to get wet and wild.
2. Chase Field swimming pool
4. Sweet Treats
Talk about multitasking. For satiating that sweet tooth and cooling off at the same time, look no further than Phoenix's best summertime snacks. Grab a snow cone at Tropical Sno, ice cream at Churn, or -- if you're over 21 -- a boozy "jacked" shaved ice with Jacked Ice's bartending service.
5. Misted Patios
Thankfully for us, many restaurants in Phoenix have caught on to the best way to keep cool while dining alfresco: misters. Find them keeping patrons cool on outdoor patios and rooftops across the city, like local favorite Postino Wine Bar.
