Get this, 3333 Wisconsin Apartments: Washington, DC earned the No. 9 spot on USA Swimming's list of Top 50 Swim Cities in the United States. It was the first time the District cracked the list's top 10, joining the likes of Austin, Texas; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Durham, North Carolina. (Ann Arbor, Michigan, nabbed the No. 1 spot.)
So what's this all mean? Pretty much what you, as a DC resident, already know: that swimming is a serious sport here in the District, particularly due to the city's large "percentage of active swimmers and swim clubs, number of accessible pools and volume of top-level swimmers from the area." In fact, according to the press release, DC is home to "40 aquatic features and is home to 15,000 USA Swimming members."
Even if you're not a competitive swimmer, you'll find plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet (just for fun!) near 3333 Wisconsin Apartments. Need proof? Just hop on over to the Aquatics page of DC's Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). There, you'll find all the info you need about the city's public pools (both indoor and outdoor), children's pools, and kid-friendly spraygrounds. (DC's indoor pools are open year-round, while its outdoor pools and spraygrounds are open seasonally.)
If you prefer your aquatic fun to come with a side of adrenaline, make note: 3333 Wisconsin Apartments is just 30 miles from Hurricane Harbor, the water park portion of Six Flags in Upper Marlboro, MD!
