Summer is here and what better way to celebrate the new season than with a trip to the neighborhood pool? I love nothing more than reading a good book, sipping on an iced cold drink and lounging on a pool float till the sun sets. If you're the same way, but still haven't invested in a pool float or have been using the same old one for years, this is the article for you. Keep reading for the best pool floats to shop right now.

Pool float buying guide:

Type of float: Pool floats come in all shapes and sizes. There are lounger floaties you can rest in or smaller floaties that can hold your cocktail or mocktail when you're in the water. below. Find options for a few different kinds below. Floats also have different weight limits - if a product has a weight limit I've made sure to include it in the description.

Material: Foam floats are much more durable than inflatable floats as those are usually made out of plastic or vinyl - which are both more susceptible to chlorine and sunlight. You'll find both foam and inflatable floats listed below.
