Summer is here and if your air conditioner breaks down it can feel like your day is ruined, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of cool activities to try in Berks County if your air conditioner breaks down.

You can contact B&L Ott for an emergency repair service to get your air conditioner back up and running as soon as possible. However, if you have to wait or have kids to keep entertained while B&L Ott fixes your system, there are plenty of ways to beat the heat. (Note: Someone should stay at your home while a B&L Ott technician is fixing your air conditioner.)

Grab A Bite To Eat

There are countless places to eat in the Berks County. You can try something new or simply go to your favorite restaurant. Almost every restaurant in the area has air conditioning so it’s a great way to just relax and get your mind off of your broken air conditioner.

Get Some Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt

Afterward, you can grab some ice cream or frozen yogurt to cool off. This is the perfect treat for a hot summer day in Berks County. If you aren’t an ice cream or frozen yogurt person, you can opt for some water ice or a snow cone instead.

Catch a Movie

Summer is a great time to catch a movie. New movies are released all the time during the summer. If you want something a little different and are willing to do a little bit of traveling, you can head to a drive-in for a more nostalgic experience.

Go Bowling or Play Indoor Sports

If you or your family is more on the sporty side, you can go bowling or another indoor sport. You can try laser tag, a trampoline park, rollerblading, rope climbing or just head to a sports complex to see if any other sports catch your attention.

Shop at The Mall

On the other hand, if you are more of a shopper than an athlete, the shopping mall may be your perfect activity. If your friend or family member’s birthday is coming up soon, you can spend the extra time to find them the perfect gift.

Visit the Pagoda

If you live in Reading, you probably see the Pagoda every day, but you may not have visited it very often. You can take in the view over Reading enjoy a little time getting away from it all.

Go See Crystal Cave

Crystal cave is a little bit of a drive away, but it can be a nice switch up from your everyday sights and activities. A cave can be a great place to cool off on a hot summer day as well. You can learn a little bit about geology, then shop for sparkly souvenirs at their gift shop.

See What’s At the Museum

If you want something more easy-going and educational, you can check if anything is new in a nearby museum. It may not seem as exciting as some of the other outing ideas on the list, but it is always good to look for ways to better yourself and learn something new.

Go  to the Pool

One of the most refreshing Summer activities is swimming. Whether you have your own pool, have a friend who owns one, or you go to a public pool, swimming is a great way to pass the time. It’s good exercise and the water can help relax your muscles.

Visit Your Friends or Family

Finally, you can catch up with your friends and family you haven’t seen in a while. Life can get very busy at times. We don’t always have the time we wish we had to spend with our family and friends. Therefore, when you have the chance to do so, it is a good idea to take it. You can simply have a nice chat or they can join you for one of the other fun activities on this list.
