It may be the first day of fall, but here in San Diego, we’re lucky enough to be able to enjoy swimming year-round. If you’re traveling to our fair city and want to keep up on your swim workouts or just looking for a pool to lounge around while you’re staying at our bungalows, be sure to check out our list below.  There are many options for pools in San Diego, but the following list includes options that are within a 10-minute drive of Alcazar Court.

As with any of our recommendations, please be sure to check the website addresses we provide for latest details as seasonal attractions often have varying hours of operation and availability and we’d hate for you to be disappointed.  So bring your suits and goggles – we’ll provide the towels! and get ready for your next workout or pool lounging experience.

Another great option for pool access while traveling is Resort Pass – where you can get pool, spa, and amenity access at luxurious hotels around the country.
