While the lakefront and beaches are nice, there are other places to swim in warm weather. The Park District opens 49 outdoor pools in the summer, and runs 28 indoor pools all year long.
If you’d rather avoid the sand, and bustling beach scene, then try out your local pool. Make sure to check the schedule, there are some hours reserved for family swim or classes.
Indoor pools are housed in some of the city’s historic field houses and have lap lanes, changing rooms, and diving boards. However, we’d suggest finding an outdoor pool so you get to soak up every bit of a Chicago summer. Many of them are in some of Chicago’s best parks and some have lounge chairs, water playgrounds, giant slides.
And after the pool, there are plenty of things to do like exploring the Chicago Riverwalk, heading to a farmers market, or discovering a new secret park. For the best of the Chicago, check out our seasonal city guide.
