4 Free, Air Conditioned Places to Hide When It’s Blazing Hot in South Jersey

When the heat is this oppressive, you need a place to escape.

We surveyed 100 people…actually, no we didn’t. We’ll leave that to Steve Harvey. But I did think of a handful of places where you can hang out for free in South Jersey when the summer gets too hot to bear.

The Mall


I like using scorching hot days to do some window shopping at the mall. I grab a soda and just kind of slowly stroll to take in as much cool air as possible.

Grocery Store


In the movie the Seven Year Itch, Marilyn Monroe puts her knickers in the ice box to stay cool. I hate to grocery shop, but when the heat rises I use it as an excuse to get it done. I would never go so far as to put my underwear in the refrigerator, but you will see me lingering in the frozen foods section.


The Movie Theater


Regal Cinemas in Mays Landing and Frank’s Towne Stadium 16 in Egg Harbor Twp. both offer arcades in the lobby of the theaters before you have to get your movie ticket torn. Bonus? Frank’s also has a small bar.


The Car!


Ok, hopefully you drive a car that has air conditioning, or at least know a friend that does. I love putting on a podcast, cranking up the AC, and just cruising around for awhile.
