Summers in the Cumberland Valley can get hot and humid. Some days, temperatures reach the high 90s with 90%+ humidity. Luckily, the Valley has a number of water spots to cool down in. Whether it’s the lakeside beaches at state parks, or vast local pools, residents and visitors can beat the heat in the water of the Valley. While there may be many options, only one could be voted “Best Place to Swim in the Valley.” And the winner is…
The Boiling Springs Pool.
Located in scenic Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, the Boiling Springs Pool has four different pools varying in size. There are also three waterslides at Boiling Springs Pool that wind and turn into the waters. The pool is great for visitors, because it is open to all guests, regardless of where they reside.
