    all summer/all the summer

    1) The swimming pools are open all summer.
    1) The swimming pools are open all the summer.

    Are they both correct?

    Thanks.

    Re: all summer/all the summer

    (Not a Teacher)

    Well, I don't think I'd ever catch myself saying that second sentence. However, I hesitate to pass final judgment on it because it seems like I've seen that form before. "The swimming pools are open all summer long." is also a good sentence.
