It is going to hit 100 Degrees here in the Prospect, CT area. Here is a quick list of thing you can do to keep cool!

Posted by Dave Jones Realty on July 6, 2010

Today here in Connecticut, (and most of New England) we are expected to have record high temperatures.

The air already feels like Pea Soup with the Humidity and with temperatures hitting 100 degrees, I thought I would post a list of things to do, or places to go, to cool off.

  1. Head to the local library. If you have kids the local library could be a quick and easy (and inexpensive) retreat. The Prospect library for one has a great children’s play area, Free Internet access, all the newest books and even DVD’s. Plus the A/C is REALLY cold in there.

  2. If you want to head out into your yard, find a nice shady spot, bring a big jug of a frosty beverage, and set up a sprinkler. It will do the grass and you a lot of good! Be sure to save your yard work for another day.
  3. If you are in the Prospect / Cheshire area and are in the mood for a beach but don’t want to head for the shore, then check out Mixville Park in Cheshire. There is a picnic area, a large playground for the kids and of course, a beach. Parking is less expensive for Cheshire residents so bring your ID’s.

  4. If you are in the Waterbury / Wolcott area you have a place close to you, Woodtick (Scoville) Reservoir in Wolcott.

  5. It’s always good to head to a movie in the extreme heat. Some of our local theaters still have discounts on Tuesdays. With the price of movie tickets what they are now, look for a discount!
  6. Head out to a local Ice Cream Shoppe like the Big Dipper Ice Cream in Prospect, The Prospect Dairy Bar in Prospect, Scooples Ice Cream in Cheshire or Wentworth’s Ice Cream in Cheshire. You still have to go out in the heat to get to them, but for a few moments you will have a creamy escape!



    Whatever you decide, please remember to keep hydrated and do not over due it!

If you are going to be in the sun load on the Sunblock.

The Beardsley Zoo in CT. Fun family trip idea.

Posted by Dave Jones Realty on May 28, 2008

My family and I made our way over to Beardsley zoo in Bridgeport.  It was a beautiful, cool day, and the zoo wasn’t too crowded.  The zoo has a new bird show that shows three times a day.  It was very interesting in that it is an “in the air” bird show with none of the birds having clipped wings. 

There was a little excitement when the owl in the show took off, and they zoo rangers had to attempt to track him down. 

One tip… Check your local library for passes to local attractions.  Our local zoo has several Museums and kids attractions.  The Beardsley zoo passes out library has admit 4 for FREE.  You can’t beat that.

 Also be sure to pack a cooler with sandwiches and drinks.  There is a great place to sit in the shade and enjoy your lunch!

Here are some photos I took.
