The Capital Region has been getting hit hard recently by hot temps. To fight this off here are a few places that will help you beat the heat.

I know personally for me I don't exactly go to public swimming pools all that much, or beaches for that matter. However I have great memories as a child of going to a few of these. The Times Union reported that in an attempt to help people cool off the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation will be extending the hours of certain beaches and pools surrounding Albany until Thursday.

A few of these will even be open until 8 PM which to me is awesome because that gives people enough time to get home from work and get out to their favorite watering hole. The ones open until 8 include,

  • Grafton Lake
  • Moreau Lake
  • Thompson Lake

Get out there defeat this heat and have fun!
