Whether you live in the perpetually warm southern states or you live in the four seasons of the northern state, you can appreciate a great pool all year long. There is no reason to take a dip in a plain old rectangular pool because there are so many pools that are just as wonderful to look at as they are for swimming. Here a few of the best pools in the United States:
The Joule in Dallas, Texas: The Joule Hotel in Dallas, Texas does not have the biggest pool in the state, but it certainly has the most memorable pool. This hotel that is designed with a mix of historic and modern design features a cantilevered pool that sticks out of the side of the building. You may not burn many calories swimming laps in this small pool; the pool is designed for style rather than function.
Sheraton in Waikiki, Hawaii: The Pacific Ocean is a great place to swim, but the salt water is not always a popular choice. When you need a great pool on Waikiki Beach, look no further than the Sheraton. It has an infinity pool that looks like it stops just before the water falls into the ocean.
Hilton Waikaloa Village in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii: This is another Mecca of pools in the Hawaiian Islands. This resort is so focused on water that guests are driven to their home for their vacation via boat. There are three pools, some with water slides and lazy rivers. Some of the pools have swim-up bars and some are stocked with tropical fish for those who want to snorkel in a controlled environment.
The Viceroy in Miami, Florida: The Atlantic Ocean beckons, but the pools at the Viceroy call more loudly. This resort with both a hotel and residences has Florida’s longest infinity pool that overlooks Biscayne Bay. It also has a pool on the 15th floor so visitors can check out the views of downtown Miami.
Las Vegas, Nevada: Even though this city is set in the middle of the desert, there are plenty of pools to help people cool off from the temperatures that typically climb over 100 degrees. Some of these memorable pools are designed for parties and some are designed for relaxation. The Hard Rock Café’s pool is known for parties that take up the full three acres of outdoor space. For more partying, the pools at the Palms are also legendary. If you want a more relaxing experience in Vegas, the memorable pools include the Mandarin Oriental Pools, which only require a quick reservation, and the Bellagio Cypress Lounge Pools. The Golden Nugget has a completely redesigned water complex with a shark-filled aquarium at the pool called The Tank that includes a water slide that goes through the shark tank; guests also enjoy the peace and quiet at the The Hideout.
Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona: The desert is a popular place for amazing pools. In the middle of Arizona, the Enchantment Resort has a simple, geometric pool with the inspirational views of the surround Red Rocks. You will not be disappointed with the sites from this resort pool.
