Summer is officially upon us, and as all you Angelenos know that can mean sweltering heat.   The good news is that here is Southern California pools are an art form.  From sipping cocktails poolside at your favorite hotel to a casual backyard pool party, there are plenty of option to choose from, and no shortage on style…

Nothing is more iconic than the Beverly Hills Hotel pool.  Book a lunch at the Cabana Café, and then enjoy the rest of your day splashing about.

Looking for something smaller and quainter?  Try Casa Laguna Hotel and Spa for a cozy dip in the pool while overlooking the Pacific.
