Escape the summer heat with these swimming spots listed on pool-sharing company Swimply.

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

  • The pandemic came with a silver lining for Swimply — now, the company is betting that people will want to rent private homes for leisure activities even after shutdown orders have lifted.
