Need a destination swimming hole? While we may enjoy basking in the sun and exploring, sometimes we just need a break. After all, we are from the Pacific Northwest. On these days, when the heat is just too much, you don’t need to remain cooped up indoors. Instead, head to these great local destinations to stay cool.
