Boston isn’t exactly known as a pool town, but in-the-know types have several notable pools to choose from, including slick hotel pools and casual public facilities. Whether you're looking for a NYC-style rooftop pool or a see-and-be-seen vibe that wouldn't be out of place in L.A., these destinations have what you're looking for. If chlorine isn't your thing, consider the best beaches in the Boston area. For those who prefer to relax on the water — rather than in it — choose one of the best Boston cruises. As the city progresses through its reopening phases, be sure to check with each venue directly to confirm availability and details.
