Youth is defined by the promises of summer. No school. Endless days. Suntanned skin. Dirty feet.
Gradually, though, adulthood seeps in to steal a piece of fun here, a chance to get away there. For this year’s Summer Guide, we sought to rediscover the season’s simple pleasures, from hidden swimming holes to melty ice cream to roadside barbecues. Dip out this summer for an afternoon ballgame or to go junkin’ in Chamblee. We won’t tell. In fact, we’ll probably be digging through the bin right next to you.
