Water is essential no matter where you are in Arizona. When you are out and about, keep a bottle of water handy. You can easily become dehydrated without realizing it. So play it smart, try to avoid outdoor exercise during in the afternoon and drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
Taming the sun
You may have heard the saying ‘it’s a dry heat.’ That is the rule of thumb most of the year in Tempe.
