Relax under a shade tree. Make your way over to the Saline River to dip your toes.
There's a place for ice cream in just about every section of town. Cool off a cone from one of Saline's ice cream servers. For the west siders, Mickey's Dairy Twist is at 751 W. Michigan Ave. Mickey's Downtown is located in the heart of town, at 107 W. Michigan Ave. And Dairy Queen is at 400 E. Michigan Ave.
Read a book. Research local history. Surf the net. There's plenty to do at the library. And it's air conditioned.
Hook the sprinkler up to the hose, twist the nozzle, and run through the sprinkler.
