If you're looking for summer fun for the entire family, look no further than these five popular pools in Northern Illinois.

Summer Fun Is Here

It certainly feels like summer in the Stateline area, even if the calendar doesn't agree. We have spent MONTHS freezing in the cold and dreaming about laying on a warm beach or patio chair soaking up the sunshine. Now that we can finally fulfill those winter dreams, where should we go? What should we do?

I am not a huge lover of the heat, so I know the only way I will survive the next months is by being very close to water whenever I am outdoors. When I say water, I'm not talking about the kind we can drink, I'm talking about the kind we can cool down and swim in.

If you don't have a pool and don't want to mooch off your friends that do, here are 5 great Stateline area pools to visit this summer...
