Indoor pools provide wiggle-busting fun

Swimming in the Northwest is a year-round family activity. Local Seattle-area indoor pools offer “splash-tastic” fun for babies, tots, bigger kids and grown-ups alike. We are lucky to have pools around the region that feature amenities and events that are sure to delight swimmers and keep them active all year. So, the next time you need to change up your activity routine, check out one of the area’s top indoor pools — they’ll make you feel as though it’s summertime, no matter what the season.

And of course, safety is always top of mind when it comes to any sort of water play. Check out this round up of swimming lessons and help your little ones gain the confidence and skills they need to fully enjoy these incredible pools. While this round up is generally focused on tot swim lessons, many places offer classes for a variety of ages.
