With the Houston heat rising to triple-digit temperatures, Houstonians are catching a glimpse of our brutal summer season. And even though you'll try to find any way to stay indoors with the AC, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors while still staying cool. 

Prep your closet for Houston’s heatwave by adding linen fabrics to your wardrobe. Linen’s woven design allows for airflow, and the breathable textile can loosely sway away from the body instead of sticking to you. Keep your car stocked with gadgets like a Zone Tech Cooling Car Seat Cushion for those long family road trips, and your backyard needs the Bobor Trampoline Sprinkler to keep the family cool for those insufferably hot days. No matter what your plans are for the summer season, these essentials will help you survive the Houston heat.
