The YMCA in downtown Minneapolis is amazing though, great pool! It kept me sane while I was living out of a hotel for 3 months. I really miss it back in Florida, no indoor pools and the outdoor pools close during the winter.
I don't blame you about the winter. We actually lived in Austin, TX for a few years before having our son and moving back to MN....and we moved back in February. It was horrible. Thankfully, though, we actually had a spring that year and it was in the 80s by March. This winter really has been mild, though. We've only had 2 nights below zero. Usually we have 20 or so by now!
Strangely enough, I have a pool in my backyard. It was the only thing I didn't like about the house we bought (pools are expensive and aren't open very long in MN), but I'll be living in it this summer!
I'm in St. Paul, so I don't go over to Minneapolis too much, but there are a lot of great indoor pools in the area!
