Whether you’re planning an out-of-state road trip or want to find a nearby outdoor oasis, we have ideas for you. Perhaps you’re hoping to catch on your reading list – we asked several notable Springfield readers to share their suggestions for good books to tackle this summer. And when the kids start saying they’re bored a day after the school year ends, we have ideas for family fun that will keep them entertained all summer. Plus, Summerguide includes a round-up of area theater and live music offerings, along with a three-month calendar to help you keep track of all the fairs, festivals and other events happening this summer.
