My sister-in-law used to have a jacuzzi or hot tub at her backyard when I first arrived here in the States. I thought that was pretty coll. She got rid of it though after deciding to have a swimming pool instead. I think having a backyard hot tub is something that is cozy that a family would enjoy. It's not that big so maintenance is a little cheaper than having a pool. Having a back yard hot tub is like having your personal space whenever you want to relax and enjoy the therapy of warm water. This is really good especially if you come home from work and would want to sooth your tired body. There are different designs of hot tubs that you can check out at Dimension One Spa.
