All things to do in Summit County this week

While I live in a snow-skiers Mecca, summer is really my most favorite time of year in the mountains.  There are so many things to do:  hike, road bike, mountain bike, sail, row, festivals, the list goes on and on.  And the July 4th Independence Day holiday is quite frequently considered our summer kick-off.  Wisely, our town and county officials have decided to forgo the firework displays this year – but not to worry – there is so much more for you to do!

 Don’t miss out on all of the fun things to do in the next week.  I’ve broken it down for you by town (resort):
