If you read my blogs regularly, you know I love living in South Florida! I love the proximity to the ocean. I love the unique blend of cultures. I love the diversity of wildlife in the Everglades. But, what I definitely don’t love, is the summer heat. This time of year, when temperatures rise into the high 90s and combine with high humidity, the omnipresent heat is intense enough to wilt the enthusiasm of even the most loyal residents. But, that doesn’t mean you pack your bags and head north. Even during these hot summer months, there’s still plenty to do
Fort Lauderdale has wonderful museums, including the NSU Museum of Art ,which has an array of rotating exhibits on display. This summer, the museum is showing Frank Stella: Experiment and Change, an exhibition that spans the artist’s 60-year career. As well as Midnight in Paris & New York: Scenes from the 1890s-1930s. A new exhibition that offers a fascinating glimpse into the rapidly changing society in America and Europe during the turn of the century.
If you’re looking for something more animated, take in a show at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The Broward Center offers matinees for almost all of its shows, including High School Musical Jr, and the Capitol Steps.
A day at the spa, where the only sweating you’ll do is inside the sauna, is an ideal way to beat the heat. Ft. Lauderdale is brimming with optionsfor you to cool off and enjoy a relaxing massage or a rejuvenating facial.
If you can’t beat it, enjoy it!
They don’t call it beach weather for nothing, right? Of course, the trick is to protect yourself.
- Always wear sunscreen, even if it’s cloudy, and remember to reapply.
- Add extra layers of protection. A hat can help keep you cool and protect your face from excess sun, and sunglasses will help protect your eyes.
- Stay hydrated! Dehydration is a major cause for concern during the summer months. So, drink lots of water.
Despite the summer heat, South Florida is still one of the best places for year-round quality of life, making it a great place to live. Email me today to find your next ideal home.
