SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Sacramento region has already gotten a taste of summer heat these last few weeks and it might be time to look for some good spots to stay cool.

There are numerous lakes, rivers, water parks, public pools and other areas to get some respite from that intense summer sun.

Whether looking to swim or spend some time near natural waterways, it is always important to practice good water safety, since certain waterways can be extremely cold or have fast-moving currents.
