You're perched at the end of the diving board, toes dangling off the edge, peering at your reflection in the glassy water below. You bullet into the pool until you touch the bottom, all the while holding your breath. You can't hear a sound. Your cheeks puff out, and a tiny bubble escapes the side of your mouth. It's time to come up for air. How you hate leaving your crystal clear underwater hideaway.
Aah, the sheer bliss of summer.
Swimming pools--the ultimate summer chill-out spots--provide fun, relaxation, and refreshment from the heat. You'll find many of the best pools around at hotels throughout the South. Check in to one of these spots, and you're in for a treat. From classic luxury to family fun, each offers a unique oasis. Dive in.]
