It’s official: Summer and its humidity have fully descended on Chapel Hill.
Thankfully, there are a lot of ways to keep cool and/or still have fun in the heat. Here are some of my local summer favorites:
• Visiting farmers' markets. While this won’t keep you cool, farmers' markets are the best in summer. The Carrboro Farmers' Market is in full swing, and there’s a farmers' market in Southern Village in the summers, too. I love supporting local farmers – and the produce tastes so much fresher. Also check out the Chapel Hill Farmers' Market.
• Biking. Even if it’s hot, the breeze feels amazing. I love biking in Hillsborough.
