An extended family vacay may not be in the cards this summer, but you can still dive into the high life at a local resort for a day to remember (at a fraction of the cost). From waterslides and lazy rivers to cabanas and poolside service, these 7 resorts offer day passes for the whole family to come soak up the sun and the fun at their pools. Scroll through our slideshow to plan your day-cation getaway.

Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina

Splash into fun at this downtown San Diego resort with views of the bay. You’ll love that the main pool has a kid and a grown-up section and for little tykes, there’s a separate 3-feet deep kiddie pool. Take time to workout in the gym and relax with a drink from the Tiki bar or order up food poolside from the Tequila Bar and Grill. Walk to nearby Seaport Village for shopping and dinner.

Pool hours: 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
Cost: $15+/adult; $10/child; $15 parking
