This might be a strange question - in California many apartment complexes have swimming pools but they don't have any changing rooms or anything like that (at least anything that I'd recognize as such). While entering pool seems obvious (just put normal cloths on the swim suite) - what is expected method of exiting?

    I am not sure how is this related to travel? – Nean Der Thal Oct 20 '14 at 7:34

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about travel. – Nean Der Thal Oct 20 '14 at 7:48

    those pools are for residents, as a guest of a resident your hosts will know. If you're not there as a guest or a resident, you shouldn't be there. – jwenting Oct 20 '14 at 7:57

    @User then ask your neighbours :) I'd guess they just walk to and from the pool in their swimwear, with maybe a towel wrapped around them – jwenting Oct 20 '14 at 8:59

    You typically change in your apartment. You live there, after all, right? – Flimzy Oct 20 '14 at 17:10

Places like that you change in your room and wear a bathrobe or shirt or sarong or just simply wrap your towel around you. Do the same when you head back to your room, though drying off a bit before leaving the pool area is a polite thing to do ;-)

  • Sarong? seriously.. in the US? – Nean Der Thal Oct 20 '14 at 7:33

    Lots of ladies in the USA use sarong type wraps. Do you think it is limited to Asia and Africa? – user13044 Oct 20 '14 at 7:56
  • @Tom No, just (South-East) Asia ;-) – Relaxed Oct 20 '14 at 8:24
