The Complete Guide to Dallas Pools: Photos

Dallas is hot and the Gulf of Mexico is three and a half hours away. But we make do in true Dallas style: with shiny, man-made solutions in the form of an impressive array of pools. Some are obvious and open to the general public, others are not. But nightlife columnist Deb Doing Dallas and photographer Valerie Thomspon tracked down an oasis for every person, group and time. Over the last week, we've presented these in three categories: Public(ish), hotels and residential. In case you're looking for an easier way to browse, what you'll find here is the list and a gallery of Thompson's photos. Click on any photo to go to the description of that particular pool. Remember: White towels and sunscreen.
