Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood: sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes.

We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family and, if we’re lucky, take a scenic road trip! In this issue of ​Smyrna Vinings Lifestyle​, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. When’s the last time you played tourist in your hometown? We invite you to use Pages XX-XX [Feature 2]​ as your guide to some spectacular sites right here in​ Smyrna Vinings.

This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local music scene at various venues like Mable House Barnes Amphitheater, The Battery Atlanta and

SunTrust Park. We can’t wait to catch ​The John Butler Trio with Trevor Hall​ on ​July 26​!

With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what ​Smyrna Vinings has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start.

Happy exploring! We hope to see you around!
