IWhile this weekend might be your last chance to enjoy the cool weather, it's also time to start scoping out your go-to spots for when things really heat up.
Pool hopping is as much of a summer sport in Phoenix as people watching in the air-conditioned shopping centers.
So get out a notebook and grab your bikini (and your wallet). Here are our ten favorite pools in the Valley
10. Arizona Grand Resort
The Pointe at South Mountain wasn't too shabby, but $52 mil can buy some killer upgrades and an awful lot of water. That's why the remodeled luxury hotel, now called the Arizona Grand Resort, was a shoe-in for one of our favorite pools in town. There's an eight-story tower with three water slides, a huge wave pool with waterfalls, and a faux river perfect for inner tubing. Order a frozen margarita at the swim-up bar or relax in the 25-person hot tub while the little ones play beach volleyball in the kid-friendly Wild Cat Springs. The only downside is that Oasis Park is for resort guests only, so you'll have to sneak in, splurge for a romantic local getaway, or schmooze your way into a company freebie.
