Swimming might be the best part of summer…especially during those dry, hot days. And for kids, summer is defined by hours spent doggie paddling in the deep end and playing poolside with friends. Here is a guide to a few of our favorite local swimming facilities—both outdoor and indoor. From rope swings and crazy slides to lap lanes and kiddie pools, these swimming spots will keep your children chilled all summer long. Also, check out the local YMCA for pools and more.
