5 Ways to Beat the Heat

Things are heating up around here!  This past weekend’s temps were well above average for this time of year, and with Summer quickly approaching, things are only going to get hotter!  So to keep you cool here is our list on ways to beat the heat this Summer.


  • Splash Pads:  Kids love splashing around in water that randomly pops up from the ground, and parents love that they can watch from the shade and not fear that their child might drown.  Here is a great list of Splash Pads near Charlotte.  Smack dab in the middle of Birkdale Village is one of the most popular Splash Pads.  Concord and Kannapolis both have Splash Pads as well!  Fun 4 Kids Charlotte also has a great list of local splash pads and water parks near us!
