ROBERT MAYER/SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL
One of the best family outings in Southeast Florida in our Best of Florida Travel series. The Venetian Pool ( Coral Gables; coralgablesvenetianpool.com; 305-460-5306).
This cool pool, completed in 1924, is made from coral rock and features loggias, soaring towers and terra-cotta tiles. Kids splash beneath a waterfall pouring over a rocky promontory and disappear into mysterious caves.
Before South Beach grabbed all the headlines, Venetian Pool was a celebrity magnet. Johnny Weissmuller of Tarzan fame swam here. Ditto, swimming sensation Esther Williams.
