If you are fearful around the water or have a child who has not let learned how to swim, now's the time to register for a summer session of swim lessons. Sign-ups began in early spring and will continue throughout the season as space is available. From local recreation programs to private swim schools, there are plenty of opportunities to learn.
Depending upon what you're willing to spend and whether or not you can brave a non-heated pool, both group and private lessons are available. For many indoor facilities in the region, swim lessons happen year round after that initial motivational push from summer.
Sign up today at a location close to you and stay safe in the water this summer.

Sacramento is full of fun things to do during Memorial Day weekend. Check out the Sacramento Music Festival, going into its 40th season in Old Sacramento. Old-timers will remember it as the Jazz Jubilee, and the great jazz music is still there along with some more modern genres.
Memorial Day also means the Sacramento County Fair will be up and running, a perfect opportunity to get some fried food and ride some rides before the State Fair arrives along with the typical heat wave of summer.
