Summer is a great time for cookouts, pool parties, hikes, and trips to the beach. But let’s face it, summer can be HOT. And even though we’ll be missing the heat 6 months from now, being too hot is just plain annoying.

More tips on getting out of the heat
If you don’t have air conditioning in your house or are looking to cut costs, take a walk down to your nearest air conditioned store and go window shopping. This is great for days where you have nothing to do but don’t want to stay inside a broiling hot house. (P.S. All Rogan’s Shoes stores have air conditioning).Go swimming
Of course the most popular way to chill out is to dive into the water and go swimming! We’re lucky enough to be based out of Wisconsin where we have plenty of lakes and rivers to splash around in all summer long. If you don’t live near a lake, grab a garden hose and make your own backyard water park!
