Kids and families will go just about anywhere on a hot day if it means cooling off. And if you're near Cottage Grove, there are plenty of places where you can do just that.

In the July heat, people will find just about any excuse to find some morning fresh air, even if that means stopping to sample a few blueberries.

“An excellent break. I needed some exercise, I needed out of the car,” Dove Kimball said with a laugh. Kimball and her mother are traveling back to Caldwell, Idaho after spending time on the Oregon coast.
