Best Pool: Druid Hill Park Pool

800 Wyman Park Drive, (410) 396-3838,

Swim season is over now, folks, but hold onto this issue and consult it at the start of next summer to remind yourself to get over to Druid Hill Park’s pool. There are a few rules, naturally, so apprise yourself of that info first—like, it’s easier if you bring exact change for the pool entry, plus quarters for locker fare, also they won’t let you in if you’re trying to swim in regular-ass shorts, so make sure you have a proper swimsuit. On really busy and hot days, it’s packed like a Bruegel painting (if urban swimming pools were his thing instead of, um, crowded Flemish scenes) and we kinda like that.
