4 Ways to Cool Down in Miami this Summer
Miami is known for its tropical climate all year-round, but in the summer especially, this sizzling city truly heats up. Whether you're looking to explore Miami's indoor attractions or refresh while lounging poolside, we've rounded up the best ways to cool down in the summer.
The ideal South Beach escape should be spent lounging in the sun, but not without refreshing poolside sips and bites. At Loews Miami Beach Hotel, pool concierges pamper guests with complimentary pool amenities passed throughout the day. Chilled treats such as cold brew cafecito, craft beer samples, and mango mousse cones are the perfect way to refresh and keep your pool day going strong.
Locally Churned Ice Cream

The classic way to cool down, of course, is with a scoop of ice cream. Fortunately, Loews Miami’s grab-and-go coffee and ice cream shop serves the coolest treats around. Flavor Miami partner Azucar Ice Cream offers Miami-inspired varieties – all locally churned in Little Havana – such as Café con Leche (Cuban coffee-flavored ice cream with Oreo crumbles) and Abuela Maria featuring guava and traditional Maria cookies. If you venture outside the hotel and have a hankering for a scoop, try neighborhood creameries like Miami ‘N’ Ice, a trendy Thai rolled ice cream spot; Mr. Bing, which serves ice cream meant to be eaten with a fork; or The Frieze Ice Cream Factory off Lincoln Road, a South Beach staple for more than 30 years.
What could be more reinvigorating than a spa treatment? While Exhale Spa South Beach is a great place to unwind year-round, summer is especially tempting. Throughout the months of July and August, locals and visitors alike can take advantage of Miami's citywide Spa Month promotion, in which spa treatments start at only $109. So whether you’re looking for a relaxing massage or revitalizing body scrub, you’re sure to enjoy a refreshing retreat.
