It's only the middle of June and we're staring down one of the hottest summers in recent memory.

IT'S ALREADY HOT. HOW DO WE KEEP COOL?

If you have a pool in your backyard, you're in luck. If you know someone who might have one, you may just be as well off.

For those of us who don't own a pool or can't be bothered with hassling friends and family to use theirs, you're probably on the hunt to find pools that are available to the public.
