Millions of people visit our little town every year. As you can imagine, the lake gets pretty busy...especially during the summer. A fun alternative to navigating the traffic you find at our launch ramps is the Havasu Aquatic Center. While some people pay per visit, you might want to take advantage of their open swim passes...especially if you plan on visiting on a regular basis this summer.
Havasu Aquatic Center Open Swim Passes
Open swim for adults runs $6 per session. For kids ages 4 to 17 (and seniors), you pay $5 per session. (Kids ages 3 and under get in for free with a paid adult.) But, the open swim pass allows you unlimited sessions for kids for just $40. However, this open swim pass only lasts between May 30th and July 30th, 2023. So, if you plan on making the aquatic center your destination of choice throughout this summer, it may be well worth your while to invest in an open swim pass for your kids.

When asked about their least favorite subject in high school on a Thomas B Fordham Institute survey, students overwhelmingly chose math. But we actually do use math for all kinds of things as an adult. Balancing our checkbook. Making sure that we get the correct change back on a purchase. And when buying a home, to calculate its total square footage.
How Square Footage is Determined
What is Square Footage?
First of all, we've all heard this term before. But do you actually know what it means? In real estate terms, this is the total actual dedicated living space inside of a home. According to Bankrate, "livable space" must include walls, a ceiling, a floor, and heat. That means garages, unfinished basements, and patios/porches do not count as livable space. However, hallways and stairwells (for multiple-story homes) do count.
