We went from having a heat wave to a week of rainy weather. With that, it became the feeling of having cabin fever and wanting to get out but stay dry from the rain. I visited a few places during the summer trying to beat the heat and also thought, “hey, these are great places for a rainy day as well.” There are so many great places to explore alone or if you want to bring the family with you. 


We took trips to our local library to read some books and they also offered free arts and crafts for children, we went to the movies (some movie theaters have a free movie day, check with your local theater) and visited our local supermarket for a free cooking class.  Below are more adventures we took to beat the heat and stay dry.  Have fun and stay dry!

Take a blast into the past as you walk into Thomas Edison laboratory and see where his inventions were created. They have Park rangers who offer an educational tour to the life and times of Thomas Edison. There are several buildings to visit on the property.
