I think we’ve seen the last of the snow for the metro area! Your kids are probably clamoring to be done with school and you yourself are looking forward to some sunshine and to lose the winter luster, and even though we still have a few weeks before they officially open up, now is as good a time as any to start planning and buying those new summer swim suits!

We’ve compiled a list of the top 15 pools in the Denver area to swim, splash, lounge, or drink at, some of them are kid friendly and some are adults only. So pull out your swimsuit and make a list to visit a few this summer!
