Cooling off in the Bull City

by Rebecca Barbee

Summer is here which can only mean one thing – it is hot! Thankfully, Durham has lots of options for swimming. There are several pools in the area such as the JCC and the YMCA pools which are both open to memberships and as well as one-time day passes. Both are great options! If swimming holes are more your speed, some of our favorites are Bobbitt’s Hole, West Point on the Eno or the Fews Ford Access. With all three, you can combine swimming with a short (or long!) hike. At the West Point on the Eno, you can also combine swimming with some kayaking or canoeing. Frog Hollow Outdoors offers rentals as well as guided tours. Happy swimming!
