The Good News Is, there are fun things to do in the heat

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -- The Charlotte area is in the middle of a heat wave this week. Monday temperatures were in the high 90s, and we're not expecting a break until Wednesday.

We spend a lot of time talking about getting out of the heat on days like this, but there are lots of fun things to do in the heat.

One great way to cool off is by going to Carowinds for the afternoon. The Boomerang Bay Water Park is packed on days like today. Boomerang Bay is 25 acres packed with dozens of rides.

It's still important to make sure you drink plenty of water and protect against sun burn while you're at the park.
