Instead of going to the beach, why not settle for a dip in the family swimming pool or the pool in a residential complex? An on-premises private pool takes time and money to maintain. But think of the time and money spent on a vacation spot that has a beach and/or an indoor/outdoor pool. Buying pool supplies and accessories for a private pool can be a money saver and a boost to property value. Compare that to the cost of booking a reservation at a summer or an all-season swim resort.
