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! We planned the ideal summer getaway to relax with salt water in the air and sunrises over the ocean. This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local music scene at various venues like Cains or The Joint. We can’t wait to catch Michael Buble in Concert on July 15 at the BOK Center! And don’t miss the Summer Heat International Dance Festival presented by Choregus Productions. With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what  Tulsa has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start. Happy exploring, Tulsa. We hope to see you around!
