At Pico Blvd and 16th is Santa Monica College and hidden behind that wall facing 16th is the Santa Monica Swim Center where for 2 bucks (if you’re a resident) you can enjoy two different pools that are usually teeming with kids during the summer months.  (It’s 5 bucks if you live anywhere other than Santa Monica).

Water’s a funky medium.  Whenever my kids were young and cranky, I would throw them in the bath.  The medium of water is so akin to the water makeup in our own bodies, that it has a natural reaction that can be very calming to most.  And it always seemed to do the trick on my kids – it still does.

Now, we throw them into the Santa Monica pool and they have a blast.  There’s usually other kids to play with, the temperature is just about right, and there’s always something to do.

If you would like to take advantage of the swim classes they have, they’re cheap and I would suggest getting on it early – since the classes fill up super fast.  You can do it online at 6am and be one of the first to register, thereby regulating your SuperMom or SuperDad status.

See you in the neighborhood!  And in the pool!
