Beating the heat is never easy, but working at an ice cream shop can help.
"When we get a little hot we run into our freezer and cool off for a quick second," said Jarod Charron, who manages a Ben & Jerry's scoop shop.
Or you could grab a quick scoop of something delicious
"I'm gonna try the mango sorbet, that sounds cool," Marissa Gilliard said.
When the heat is just too hard to beat, the American Red Cross says staying out of the sun is the best option.
"I spend most of the time inside, just try not to spend too much time outside, but it's been pretty rough," said Chris Devlin of Sunderland.
But for some a good way to keep cool is with a swim.
"This is the place; the breeze is cool, the water is crisp and cool, it's a great way to beat the heat," said Jen Santoro of Long Island, N.Y.
Biking is fun, but the Red Cross says strenuous exercise can be dangerous when it's this hot. Too much exercise and excessive heat can lead to sunburn, heat cramps or even a heat stroke.
"Here in Vermont, you're not used to this humidity and this heat. So, that's definitely new," said Anna Mcdevitt of Minnesota. "It's a struggle sometimes, especially going up those hills. We look for shade a lot."
With the high temperatures, the American Red Cross wants to make sure you're staying cool by checking on anyone who may not have AC, wearing light colors, staying hydrated and not leaving pets or kids in the car unattended.
And for the few runners out on the bike path...
"I only saw like one other guy really," Ian Shea said. "A lot of bikers though, but they got it easy."
And there are always other ways to cool off, like water.
"It's the best part about Vermont, right?" Devlin said.
If you're spending the day outside and you begin to experience heat cramps in your legs or abdomen, get to a cool place, stretch those muscles and drink half a glass of water every 15 minutes.
