    What better way to stay cool and to get some exercise at the same time. FYI, Young's Skating Center in Mays Landing offers summer skating sessions.

    Go Bowling

    Bowling is yet another fun activity for the kids, and a great way to help you stay cool.

    I always feel like I get a good workout after bowling a few games too. So that's an added bonus.
