Default running hot????

hi i have a 1996 bonniville SE im not sure but i think its running a little hot.. i just bought it last night and drove it home it ran like 180-190 on the highway no problem but i let it idle for like 30 min. and it was runing like 220-225 ish and it took a while for the fans to cut on.. but they did and it started cooling down a little bit. is that normal? and what could i do to make it run a little cooler? thank you

That sounds about normal. Fans don't kick in until a bit over 200*
