I mean the nice thing about indoor pools is that you can swim regardless of the time of year because you're in a controlled environment . . . outdoor pools are always closed in fall and winter when the weather's chilly, for obvious reasons.

My wife and I used to take a number of road trips. The only thing I requested was a hotel with a pool. We had a travel deal where we got big discounts staying at a Holiday Inn. More often than not they had an indoor pool, which was nice, you can swim at night or if it was raining outside.
Once in a while the pool might also have a jacuzzi.

One thing I liked to do was sit in the jacuzzi for about ten minutes, then afterwards immediately jump into the pool to feel the dramatic difference in water temperatures . . . boy, you talk about a rush, lol.

Once we stayed at Harrah’s in Atlantic City. Not only did they have several pools, but a gym, jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, the whole deal.
That’s the idea of hot places. Sweat your pores out, then jump in cold water. Very good for your skin.

Every summer down here treats us to the sauna/steam bath experience with our high humidity; walk outside, your glasses fog up instantly.

I remember as a kid being fascinated by how the temperature of the pool is drastically cold after spending a good amount of time in the hot tub.

I remember as a kid curious to see what being under water in a hot tub is like. Not bad but I don’t really recommend it either.

It’s hard to see underwater in a hot tub. First, it’s so shallow. Second, when the jets are turned on, you got a sea of bubbles.

I loved Eddie Murphy’s line from Trading Places. He was a homeless bum who suddenly finds himself in Dan Aykroyd’s house. The butler turns on the jacuzzi for him.

Murphy: “ Wow! Bubbles! When we were kids and we wanted bubbles we had to fart in the tub! Hee hee hee!”🥶
