Pools, Pools and More Pools!
+ Oregon Ridge Beach (13401 Beaver Dam Rd): The former quarry is one of the city’s best pools by far. Located in Cockeysville the secret swimming spot is filled with a bath house, concessions, a play ground, picnic tables, grills and life guards. If you’re looking for a relaxing day with friends and family, this is the perfect place for you. Did we mention it will only run you $4-$8?
+ Tiki Barge: If you’re not feeling the pool with the kiddies then head downtown to the Harbor for some fun in the sun! Tiki Barge (500 Harbor View Dr.) is located in the Baltimore Harbor and features two bars on deck. Swimming and a drink only cost $10. We’ll see you there!
+ “Rooftops Back! Rooftops Back! That’s all the city’s yelling that the Rooftops back.” By far one of Baltimore’s favorite summer series, the “Rooftop” is actually located at Bourbon Street (316 Guilford Avenue) and is the go to spot to let loose after a stressful work week. Led by our 2010 promoter of the year Events 4 Good People, you won’t ever have a dull moment here with a live crowd, great drinks and D.J. Infame or D.J. P. Drama on the wheels.
+ Get your networking on at Eden’s Lounge (15 W. Eager) on Thursday evening with leading ladies of Women of Empowerment. Hosted by E-Media, this weekly event honors women in Baltimore and surrounding areas who are entrepreneurs, community leaders, television/radio personalities and much more.

Taverns staple drinks are a crowd pleaser as well! Try the Electronic Blue.
