Looking for a pool alternative

Hey all, I live in Central NJ and my yard is south facing, full sun. It's hotter than heck out there! I have very little tree cover and we don't want a pool, but I'm trying to find ways to make it a little more livable in the summer months.

What other type of water/fountain/recreation-type solutions should I look into?

Thanks, Dave

You can Google patio mister, or here's a link I found:
