Summer is traditionally the time to bask in the sun. But in case you hadn’t noticed, it can get awfully hot out there! For a change of pace and with five great cities to explore, here are a few indoor options to help you beat the heat. These attractions are staffed by ethical employers who treat their workers with dignity. Have a great summer and let’s all chill our way to a stronger America!
El Capitan Theatre: There is no more festive place to catch a Disney premiere than this iconic theater in the heart of Hollywood.
Langer’s Deli: Try the world-famous #19 pastrami sandwich. We can already hear you drooling
Staples Center-L.A. Live: whether it’s for a concert or a sporting event, all the truly cool people hang out at Staples including – starting in the fall – new NBA superstars Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
SF Museum of Modern Art: Warhol, Kahlo, Richter…you’ll meet ‘em all at this downtown icon.
San Jose Center for the Performing Arts: Enjoy the best of Broadway.
Top of the Mark: The 19th Floor of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins offers a view that is, well, top flight.
Library of Congress: The nation’s largest.
Union Station: Even without a train to catch, between the food, shops and bustle, you’ll want to stay all day.

Philadelphia Mint: One of only six places where our currency is produced.
Philadelphia Museum of Art: Don’t forget to say “Yo” to the famed Rocky statue.
Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts: Offering a little bit of everything including, later this summer “Hamilton.”

Metropolitan Museum of Art: No visit is complete without a visit to the Met. Bring comfy shoes. The museum covers 11.5 acres.
Citi Field: OK we cheated since this one’s outdoors, but you won’t want to miss Union Night with the Mets at City Field on September 29!
