    Does anyone know if there is a local outdoor pool (community or academy) that families can use while in town.

    Thanks

    I'm not aware of one. You might try looking it up on the internet. A number of hotels have pools (albeit small for swimming) -- mostly outdoor although maybe some have an indoor pool. Check TripAdvisor or some other site for info on hotels.

    I was looking at one of the house rental sites and it mentioned something about the Arundel Swim Center.
    I did a search for it and it appears to be only about 4.5 miles from USNA, just west of many of the hotels that are a little out of the downtown area, in the Riva Rd area.

    The Arundel Olympic Swim Center: 2690 Riva Road, Annapolis MD 21401

    http://www.aacounty.org/RecParks/swimcenters/arundelcenter/index.cfm

    From their site:
    "Welcome to Anne Arundel County’s outstanding public swimming facility. The swim center features a temperature controlled, indoor 50 meter by 25 yard swimming pool with adjacent wading pool, a poolside 17-person spa, two 1-meter diving boards and fully equipped locker rooms with coin operated lockers. All facilities are handicapped accessible. The Arundel Olympic Swim Center is open seven days a week. Lanes are continuously available for lap and recreational swimming. Youth, 12 and under, must be accompanied by a paying adult."

    I hope this helps, although I think it is just an indoor facility.

    I did a search for outdoor pools in Annapolis and it seems that the Annapolis Parks and Rec. have a municipal outdoor pool:
    Truxtun Park Pool, Annapolis, Maryland 21403 and it is just over 3 miles from USNA.
