Features
Free, Popular with locals

This three-acre watering hole has lifeguards and diving boards just like a swimming pool, but its 68-degree waters are fed by underground springs. Don't forget your goggles: Kids can spot tangles of plants and the occasional fish under the water. A free nighttime swim, from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., is particularly fun.
