1. Natural Places to Soak
Some people will describe the best way to beat the 110+ degree heat in Texas is a chemical-laden pool. I had more than my fair share of pool parties growing up, and the cool water is certainly a welcome refuge from the sun. But our state has so many more ways to cool off that are almost as accessible as your friend’s backyard. Float the river with a case of Shiner. Jump into Barton Springs. Go tubing on Lake Texoma.
