2007 Summer Guide 

Digging for Atlanta's treasures

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, summers in Atlanta offer up a treasure trove of ideas for people who are either trying to beat, or at least cope with, the heat.

That's why we dedicate this year's Summer Guide to the treasures of Atlanta in the summertime. In these pages and online you'll find the best bets of summer movies, concerts, outdoors and recreation, sports, fairs and festivals, food and drink, and even the memories – from the words and voices of our editorial staff, our columnists and the people who make the summer happen.

And to get everyone in the mood, we also include our very own treasure hunt – complete with clues on where to find fun under the sun and in CL's very own pages – and Web links and your own prize package.

Start digging for summer gold. Here's how ...
