Now that the heat is on in DC it’s to the pool we go. I’ve already told you all about Sunday’s with Spike at the Captiol Skyline, but if you don’t want to head to the semi-ghetto neighborhood next to the DC Inspection Station, there are plenty of other options.

Marc sent me this blog post from the Washingtonian that lists a few other places such as the Marriot Wardman Park and the Hilton Embassy Row. Everyone seems to charge $10 to $15 for a daypass, but there’s usually plenty of room, plenty of sun, and obvs a pool. What more could you ask for besides an apartment at the Promenade or a friend who lives there (they have a pool)…

If you don’t want to pay $$ and you don’t have a friend at the Promenade or a pool in Arlington you can sneak in to the DC public pools are actually a great bet. The ones where you won’t catch a communicable disease and/or STD are the following:

Georgetown: Feels more like a private pool club than a city one, get there early as chairs are limited and usually taken up by “scensters” discussing who made out with who at SP last night!

Foggy Bottom: HUGE is the best way to describe this pool, like huge. Plenty of seating and a wide array of bathers, from kids to gaybors and everything in between.

East Potomac Park: Run around Haines Point and then go to this pool that’s quiet and usually pretty empty because nobody knows about it. Kinda hard to find, so just refer to DC’s list of pool’s and their addresses right here (the link in the Washingtonian blog is wrong, mine is right, I win).

Don’t forget your floaties!
