PHOENIX - The heat isn't going away, but that doesn't mean you have to stay inside. I have plenty of ways to cool off for free!
Head over to Big Surf Waterpark on Tuesday, June 18, for free swim lessons.
Check in starts at 7 a.m. and the lessons begin at 8 a.m. You'll need to sign up online at bigsurf.com.
The goal is to spread the message that swim lessons can save lives, and they are also attempting to break a world record for the largest, simultaneous swim lesson.
Even better, after the swim lessons you can hang out at the water park for the rest of the day for free!
