Stay Cool in Downtown Wellen

In sunny Southwest Florida, the summer months remind us how grateful we are for all the ways you can cool off in Downtown Wellen. Whether it’s a scoop or a splash, we’re delighted to receive the cool reprieve from our Florida sunshine.

If you’re also looking for a way to chill out, look no further than the four spots we’ve rounded up below.

1. On The Grand Lake (with Rentals from Kind Vibes Outfitters!)

Soak up the sunshine on the Grand Lake with rentals from Kind Vibes Outfitters (renting a kayak could not be easier)! Founded by Florida outdoor enthusiasts, they share their local knowledge with you where you can rent a kayak by calling, reserving online, or walking up in person and accessing it the same day. Rent by the hour or by the day.

2. In the Splash Pad

Splish splash! The kids can have a blast while parents relax comfortably within their eyesight but out of the splash zone. Located in Downtown Wellen, our splash pad is a popular place for neighborhood kids to congregate and beat the heat the Wellen Way. It’s the perfect activity for a splashing good time!

3. With a Scoop from Bright Ice

With fantastic flavors and top-tier ingredients, we think a scoop or two, or three, from Bright Ice is the perfect way to cool off when the temperatures start to rise. Scooping up the local flavor, this Florida-owned business is packed with bright colors and bold flavors. We’re partial to a scoop of orange-kissed coconut cake–it’s refreshing and punched with flavor.

4. With a Cold Beverage from Villani & Co or The Banyan House

The happiest hour is one spent with friends and neighbors, but it doesn’t hurt if it includes an ice-cold beverage. We’re partial to drinks at Villani & Co or The Banyan House, where cocktails are not only incredible but thirst-quenching.
