Fresno's "Cool" Summer Spots & Giveaway Winner

I know everyone has been checking anxiously and waiting with bated breath for the results of my very first giveaway (is the sarcasm coming through in the text?), so here it is.

The winner of their choice of cupcakes is...
 I'm a little amateur...I didn't have time this weekend to figure out the random number generator.  Maybe next time. ;o)

I will be sending you a follow-up email with further details.  Thank you everyone who submitted a comment.  I am very excited about this new endeavor and value you thoughts, opinions, and insight.

Now on to new business. 
As summer has come with a vengeance here in the valley, the best way to beat the heat is at the pool.  Now we are EXTREMELY fortunate that my parents have a ginormous pool to entertain my children and I throughout the summer.  It is a great way to spend many hours a day getting plenty of exercise, and enjoying the outdoors (away from the television).  All you need is a suit, a towel, and a LOT of sunscreen...a nice hat is good too!


Now if you don't have a pool yourself or a close friend/relative there are always other places to get a nice cool down in the Fresno area.
  • Community pools are available all around town.  They are open from 1-5pm.  Children up to 17 are $1 and ages 18 and over are $2.  For more information about these parks check the link here.
  • Wild Water Adventure Park is another great way to keep cool this summer.  They have season passes starting at $49.99, and offer a day of water and shade!
  • Island Water Park was voted Fresno's best water park last year.  It has a wide variety of activities for the whole family.  Their season passes start at $59.99.

  • There are also plenty of splash parks throughout town.  Open from 9am-9pm May 1-Oct. 31
Do you have any personal insight on any of the above listed places?  What are your plans this summer to keep from melting in the valley heat?  Please share your thoughts below.

Have a wonderful day, keep cool, and God bless!
