With some days reaching into triple digits, you need to know how to cool off fast. We've compiled a list of our top 10 favorite ways to beat the heat. So, sit a spell and enjoy!!

10. iced tea

It's almost cliche', but who doesn't love a big glass of iced tea while you're sitting on the front porch?

9. fan

Cool off in style with a vintage fan. You'll be the envy of your neighbors.

8. ice cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!

7. watermelon

The perfect refreshing, healthy, summer snack. (Don't forget to save the seeds for a seed-spitting contest!)

6. pool

All you need is a good book and a float and you're good to go!!

5. snow cone

We'll take one of each flavor, please!!

4. beach

There is nothing a dip in the ocean (or gulf) can't cure.

3. lemonade stand

We can seriously NEVER pass up an opportunity for a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade.

2. sprinkler

You're never too old to play in a sprinkler!!

And our number 1 way for beating the summer heat..............

1. swimming hole

This is Hamilton Pool in Dripping Springs, Texas. It was formed when the dome of an underground river collapsed thousands of years ago. The water temperature hovers around 70 degrees making it the perfect place to be on a hot summer day.
