So... Sheldon has me swimming on Monday. I will be in Texas, visiting friends in Ft. Worth.<br><br>
Are there any good websites for locating (indoor) pools?<br><br>
I asked my friends, and neither of them knew of anything nearby, but neither one of them swims.

Look for the website of the local Parks & Rec. Department.<br><br>
There's also a website somewhere that lists public swimming pools all over the world, a user-built database...can't remember the name right now...maybe Google could find it though.

You can also look into local Y's.

Most offer day passes but I'd call ahead.

also check to see if there's a master's program in that town.<br>
They'll know where the pools are!

I use this site all the time; <a href="http://www.swimmersguide.com/" target="_blank">http://www.swimmersguide.com/</a>. I do check to make sure the info is correct. I even used this site to find a pool in Japan and worked! I love swimming in a pool near where I am visiting.

Thanks all!<br><br>
Can you drop in at the Y? I tried to do that for a Spin class over the holidays and they told me I had to be a Y member and there was no drop in rate.

Some Y's yes....<br>
some no.<br>
Some Y's you can drop in for certain things, but not others.<br><br>
Best to call and check first.
