So if our day is anything like the meme above, here's how we will not only dress accordingly, but enjoy accordingly at Broadway at the Beach:

Summer Sizzle: The heat of summer making a midday comeback? A milkshake from Johnny Rockets or ice cream from any of our lite bite eateries may make you sweetly enjoy the rising temperatures even more. Not one for sweating while wearing your sweater and leggings? Ripley's Aquarium, WonderWorks and Dave & Buster's will be a great place to beat the heat and enjoy games and indoor experiences.

Fall Is In The Air: Similar to spring, it's that in between season where we find ourselves bundling up in the mornings and taking off the layers by mid-afternoon.
