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.

If you are traveling along Route 69 headed towards New Haven, or From New Haven towards Waterbury, the Prospect Dairy Bar and Restaurant is a must stop. It is a family owned and operated Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner place that has been in business over 50 years! The Dairy Bar has just completed some renovations including “going back to their roots” and having a Full Service Ice Cream Shop. They now feature 16 flavors of Hershey’s Ice Cream including such great flavors as; Strawberry Cheesecake, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Cotton Candy, and many many more. All of these flavors can even be had in an old fashioned Milk Shake, scooped and made right in a frosted metal canister.

From the back Menu at the Dairy Bar

“Back in 1953 if you were passing through the small farm town known as Prospect you could have stopped at the Dairy Bar for Ice Cream and other farm fresh dairy products that were straight from the Visockis’ farm down the road. Vincent did the cooking and his wife Olive prepared all the soups, sandwiches and desserts.

In 1984 John & Carol Jones assumed Ownership of the Dairy Bar and also the tradition that accompanied it. For the first time ever the Dairy Bar was kept open year round.

Even though some cosmetic changes and expansions have taken place, there are some things that will always remain the same about the Dairy Bar, Prospect’s oldest continually run business; The hand painted mural depicting Prospect’s local land marks, the checker board floor, the fresh baked pies, the daily specials, the char-broiled burgers and homemade soups are sure to remain.”
