Updated: April 28, 2006
If the sandy beach and pontoon boats don't cool you off, the splash pool and seven water slides will.
When you can't jump into an actual sea, try a seaweed body wrap with seawater concentrate to nourish the skin.
Not just for tourists: Get on the river and see your city from a 300-foot paddle wheeler.
If you can't escape to your favorite campsite, enjoy this indoor pond and camp replica. (Their catfish is tasty, too.)
Nashville's wettest metro park, this favorite has a wave pool for those who can't make it to the coasts.
Cool off with beer--take your pick of more than 70 drafts from some of the world's best breweries.
When it's too hot for a hike, head to Opryland: Relax beside the indoor waterfalls or take a canal ride.
The highest waterfall east of the Rockies is three hours from Nashville; the area also offers fishing and horseback riding.
Try the Cooling Waters facial for men or the Healing Noni facial, which treats sunburn with tropical nectar.
The NunBun may have been stolen, but the expansive porch and tasty coffee drinks are still around.
Gather your friends at this swinging tree house, where you can slurp oysters and sip beer together.
