Crazy Summer Pool Destinations – Thornton’s Pool

It’s summertime and the kids (me too!) are ready to hit the swimming pools again! We found Thornton’s Pool last summer for a soccer team getaway and all the kids loved it.

Thornton’s Pool has been featured on tv and in many articles by now, so you might’ve seen it already on all those extreme pool shows on the television. But here’s a handy link to one such article if you don’t want to search yourself (don’t worry – that’s not an affiliate link. I just included it here for your convenience). And if you don’t want to read through all the scoop, here are the highlights:

  1. This pool is physically in someone’s backyard.
  2. It is 500,000 gallons of water.
  3. You can visit this pool for a donation fee.
  4. It is located in Covington TN. If you’re travelling to visit this, then the closest large city will be Memphis TN.

Here are some of the photos I took while I was there last summer:

So, this was a great time and a great destination pool last summer. And I would highly recommend it.
