4 Ways to Beat the Heat at Easton this Summer
The cold Columbus winters have nothing on its sweltering summers! When visiting Easton, there are a variety of great ways you and your kids can beat the heat. The next time you're here, try one of these cool escapes.
Cool Off at the Pop-up Fountains
A day of shopping with the kids at Easton on a hot summer day can be a tiresome experience. If you've worked up a sweat, take a break while your kids splish and splash around the Town Square Pop-up Fountains! The fountains provide a cool and refreshing escape from the summer sun, and offer hours of fun - so much so, in fact, that's it's not uncommon to see parents throwing off their shoes and joining their kids! Afterwards, feel free to borrow a complimentary towel to dry the kids off. Please note, the fountain area will be closed each Wednesday at 4:30 PM for the set up of our concerts. Fountain levels are lowered daily from 5:30-8:30 PM for dining ambience.
Enjoy Fun at the Frog Fountain
Another great fountain-based, family-friendly activity, Fun at the Frog Fountain - held every Saturday and Sunday until the end of August - is a hoppin' good time! Your kids will enjoy splashing around and taking part in activities with caricature artists, face painters and balloon artists. The frogs that adorn the fountain also make for a great photo op!
Catch a Movie at AMC Easton 30
When it's unbearably hot outside, sometimes the best course of action is to take the family inside! If you're trying to keep the kids entertained for a long period of time, take them to see a blockbuster hit at the air-conditioned oasis that is AMC Easton 30. With luxury amenities like ice cold drinks and reclining seats, your family will quickly forget about the desert outside.
Grab Some Ice Cream from Jeni's or Graeter's
Of course, you can't write about beating the heat in Columbus without mentioning the delicious ice cream from Graeter's and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams! Each shop serves up mouth-watering craft ice cream using the finest premium ingredients. And with each shop featuring dozens of unique flavors, you may just have to stop by both while you're walking around Easton!
