Summer is officially here, and with summer comes HEAT! We’ve compiled a list of ways to stay cool this summer to keep you from feeling like the Wicked Witch of the West (aka: like you’re melting). These are great ways to beat the heat and stay nice and cool.
7. Take an electric bike tour
Feel the wind in your hair as you breeze around town on a bike! But on a hot summer day, you don’t want to be sweating pedaling yourself through Chelan. Electric bikes solve this problem! Even though you will have to pedal at times, it’s much easier and will keep you from feeling like you’re working too hard in the hot summer sun.
Take a tour with Chelan Electric Bikes and see what Chelan has to offer. If you’re over 21, you can take winery tours and stay extra cool with the winery stops and tastings.
Get out on the lake and enjoy the weather! You can paddle at as leisurely a pace as you want to keep from overheating. And while you’re on the water, you’ll feel yourself cooling down. Kayaking is a great way to cool down in Chelan!
5. Cool off in the pool
Relaxing in the pool is always a good way to cool off this summer–or any summer! Take a dip in the cool pool water and feel the rejuvenation start.
Do you prefer indoor or outdoor pools? At Lakeside Lodge and Suites, you don’t have to choose between the two! Lakeside has one outdoor pool with views of the lake, and one indoor pool if you would rather escape the sunshine altogether.
4. White water rafting
White water rafting is one of the most adventurous ways to stay cool this summer! Take a rollicking journey through the rapids and get cooled off as the water splashes you. We have some tips for going whitewater rafting here, so you can have the best experience in Chelan!
Here’s another one for the adventurous-at-heart! When you go parasailing, you’ll feel like you’re flying! The breeze as you coast through the air will really help you stay cool this summer! You can even request to dip your toes in the lake water during your parasailing flight.
2. Visit a waterpark
This is one of the most classic summer activities, and one of our favorite ways to stay cool this summer! Chelan’s biggest waterpark, Slidewaters Waterpark, is full of fun activities! From the water slides, to the lazy river, to the splash areas, there’s something for everyone here.
And this summer, Slidewaters is opening the world’s largest surf wave, so soon there will be even more ways to cool down at this waterpark!
1. Go jump in the lake!
Our favorite way to stay cool this summer? Go jump in the lake! Not only is swimming in the lake a great way to cool off, but it’s also the premium attraction in Lake Chelan! Swim and relax in the beautiful lake and let the cool water carry you to the ultimate fun summer experience.
