Tallahassee has some great swimming pools available when you’ve just got to get a break from the Florida heat. It’s great to have public pools available to residents that allow for a fun day with the family without any of the work of owning a pool at home involved in the process.
Some places like the Jack McLean Aquatics Center even offer Jacuzzis and snack bars, while the Levy Pool will offer swim lessons and aerobics for those that want to get some exercise and to teach the kids how to swim. The YMCA is always a great family pool option with lap swimming, swim school, a lifeguard on deck, and a lifeguard on duty to keep everyone safe. Take a look at these options and more when it comes to the best places to take a swim around Tallahassee.
