LEARN KEY TIPS TO SURVIVING NEW ORLEANS’ GRUELING SUMMER HEAT DURING A STAYCATION

Summers in New Orleans can be brutal, with high temperatures, humidity, and sweltering heat. When planning a New Orleans staycation during the summer, staying hydrated is essential to avoid the risks of heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Drink Plenty of Water and Electrolytes

Hydration is critical to surviving the summer heat in New Orleans. High humidity levels can make people feel hotter than the actual temperature, leading to an increased risk of dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Also, electrolyte drinks can help replenish essential minerals lost through sweating.

Dress Appropriately

Wear lightweight, breathable clothing made from natural materials. Dark colors absorb more heat, whereas lighter shades reflect the sun’s rays. A wide-brimmed hat also provides shade and protection from the sun.

Visit Indoor Attractions During the Day

New Orleans has plenty of indoor attractions that provide relief from the summer heat. Check out museums, art galleries, aquariums, movie theaters, and other indoor attractions during the hottest part of the day.

Stay Out of the Sun During Peak Hours

The sun is at its hottest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Try to schedule outdoor activities early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the sun is less intense. If attending an outdoor event during peak hours, seek shade whenever possible.

Take a Dip in a Pool

Swimming is a great way to cool off from New Orleans’ summer heat. Maison Dupuy has a beautiful courtyard featuring one of the largest swimming pools in the French Quarter. As a bonus, it has poolside cabanas.

Take a Stroll Through a Park

New Orleans has several beautiful tree-filled parks that provide shade from the summer heat. Check out City Park, Audubon Park, or Woldenberg Park when planning a staycation. These parks have walking paths, green spaces, and other features that make them great places to spend a summer day.
