Escape the summer heat with these swimming spots, all listed on pool-sharing company Swimply's website.

How it works: It's like Airbnb for pools. Swimming pool owners rent out their spaces for chunks of time.

  • The pandemic came with a silver lining for Swimply, which saw demand surge and is making a big push in Texas this summer.
