With soaring temperatures and the multiple heat waves of summer, Southern California needs options for cooling off. Of course, there are beaches and some people have pools, but there's another option: swimming holes.
SoCal is home to many of these beautiful spots, which are perfect for getting relief from the heat and going on an adventure while doing so. Keep in mind that water levels will vary with the season and drought conditions. Many of these swimming holes also require a hike to reach.
