If you are temporarily living in Yuma, AZ over the summer, it’s time to address the obvious elephant in the room (or city)! Frankly, Yuma is sweltering (see a 7-day forecast below). However, there are a few tricks to keep your cool! Below, we are sharing a some ideas to stay cool while temporarily living in Yuma over the summer.
Cool (and fun) Activities
Visit Martinez Lake
If you want to stay cool while temporarily living in Yuma, use water to your advantage, specifically Martinez Lake! This 640-acre freshwater oasis is located just 35 miles outside of Yuma. Its origins date back to 1935, with the erection of the Impereal Dam, a part of the All-American Canal System. Then in 1955, a fishing camp opened, and the fun began!
Admire Some Art at the Yuma Arts Center
Whether you want to enjoy an art exhibition, or watch a theatre production, enjoy a film, or even take an art class, the Yuma Arts Center is the place to go! One of the perks is that it is indoors and therefore air conditioned!
Cultivate Your Love for History at the Casa De Coronado Museum
If you want to learn more about Yuma’s interesting past, head over to the Casa De Coronado Museum! According to Trip Advisor, “It houses exhibits of tourism pamphlets and brochures about Arizona and Yuma, travel guides, furniture and appliances from the early 1900s, and historic photos.”
Visit Lutes Casino
Whether you want to gamble, play pool in one of Arizona’s oldest pool halls, enjoy a cold beer, get lost in the interesting decor, people watch, or all of the above… it’s time to go to Lutes Casino! This fun establishment is also indoors, which means, it also has air conditioning!
Satisfy your Sweet Tooth at Parade-Ice Ice Cream Rolls
Does this sound delicious? Chocolate ice cream mixed with grahams and topped with Hershey chocolate, more grahams, toasted marshmallows and drizzled with chocolate syrup! Or perhaps you prefer more of a pina colada flavor profile comprised of coconut ice cream mixed with pineapple and topped with more pineapple, coconut flakes, cherry, and drizzled with condensed milk.
Really, whatever floats your sweettooth boat, you can find it at Yuma’s local Parade-Ice Ice Cream Rolls! Not only will it cool you down, but you can enjoy a scrumptious treat while basking in the beauty of air conditioning!
