We might have missed pool season in 2020, but Dallas is ready for the szn early this year with many hotels already opening early out of anticipation and excitement! Explore the 13 hotels and 1 White Rock club that offer pool parties and pools to dive into!
Right in the heart of Downtown Dallas, the Adolphus is the best place to take a dip on a hot day! Even though they allow the public to visit the pool using Resort Pass, due to Covid, they're currently not allowing anyone other than guests. They will update this closer to the summer months.

FRATERNAL ORDER OF THE EAGLES (FOE)
One of the most fun places to stay cool in Dallas is FOE! Located in East Dallas near the Arboretum, the pool is open daily from noon until 11 pm for the small price of $5 - 10, depending on what day you go!
Also, on the most popular days (weekends), we recommend taking a Lyft as the parking lot can fill up and there’s no parking in the surrounding neighborhood.
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions the FOE will be limiting capacity and following all distancing and mask guidelines set by the CDC.
