  • Cool off in a public pool
In Vermont, there are a limited number of days when it's hot enough to swim in an outdoor pool. For many families, joining a swim club is too expensive. The lake is an option, but you might not always feel like communing with nature.

That's why we've put together a list of public pools — including information about cost and hours. We hope it'll be useful during those dog days of summer! Have a favorite pool we should add to this list? Let us know in the comment section below.
