There was a time when I couldn’t wait for the summer heat- I’d spend my play time at Lake Mead jumping off the cliffs and baking my body for hours on a blow up raft. I was fearless! Fearless of sun exposure and the perils that could befall me on any of the high jumps into the depths of Lake Mead.
Fast forward 40 years, and sunblock has become my middle name. I lather up, cover up and try not to throw up from the intense desert heat!
Finding indoor activities that don’t include anything dangerous has been easy since Las Vegas offers entertainment in every spectrum.
That brings me to Megan’s “5 M’s of Summer”. The Mall, the Movies, Museums, a Mani/Pedi, and a Massage. When you are not working, not vacationing, and not partying, the “5 M’s of Summer” will fill your days with pleasurable activity and make you feel oh-so-good.
I have spent over forty years in the blistering summer seasons here in Las Vegas, and one way or another, we all make it work. I couldn’t ask for a better place to live!
