Long Island families look to the beach and public pools to cool off in summertime. But when parents are tired of sand being dragged into the house and the kids are bored of the municipal pool down the street, why not check out a pool in another community?
We’ve done the research and put together a list of the best pools that anyone can visit, even if you’re not a resident of that municipality. Fees to enter the pools are often higher for nonresidents, but might be worth it as a once-in-a-while boredom buster.
While you’re in a different area of Long Island, use our guides to Nassau, Suffolk, and the East End and make an adventure of it all. For more aquatic fun, check out our list of Long Island's best water parks and water slides, And remember, sprinkler parks are another great way to cool off.
