The Fourth of July has passed, and we can all begin to recover from the company, travel, excess of sunshine and maybe a little too much fun this past week. While the holiday is over, there is still plenty to do in Summit County. Relax and refresh with a hike, some yoga and a film. Keep the party going with a beer festival, live music and comedy.
