The Washington, D.C. metro area is going to be hot — today, tomorrow, and the entire week. Temperatures are expected to hit the 90s, but it will feel even hotter than that with the humidity, and will get worst as the week rolls on.

The key question is how to stay cool. Several fountains and watering holes in the District are open including Tivoli Fountain in Columbia Heights, Georgetown Waterfront Park Fountain, and Yards Park on the Anacostia River.

Folks can also visit any of the public pools or cooling centers in the area (see list below). But for those with extra time, the beaches may be the best bet, as the ocean temperature today is a relatively chilly 74 degrees.
