Summer’s Calling! Time for Day Passes to Outdoor Pools in Chicago’s West Suburbs

By:
Outdoor Activities

On warmer days, our kids beg for time in an outdoor pool where we spend hours in the day swimming, splashing, and enjoying some tie in the sun. We personally avoid memberships so we get to experience different pools and different areas, as well as check out different neighborhoods while we are at it. If getting a membership is not for you, don’t fret, because we’ve got the scoop on which pools offer this day passes to their outdoor pools.
