Hard to believe it is already July, seriously, where has the summer gone?

This weekend is July 4th and there is so much going on in and around the city, from daytime parties to backyard BBQs and nighttime fireworks, there are activities abound for the whole family. But you may be wondering, what is there to do after this holiday weekend?
