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, get outside and hike.

In this issue of Parker Lifestyle, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. When’s the last time you hiked the close-in trails? We invite you to use “Trail Season” as your guide to some spectacular sites not far from home. Summer is the perfect time to create an oasis you can enjoy every day with a bathroom makeover. Soak up some inspiration from entrepreneur and philanthropist Stacey James. She tirelessly gives back to the community and also pours passion and love into her students at the premier beauty institute in the Denver area.

This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local music scene at various venues like Parker’s own Discovery Park, Red Rocks and others. We can’t wait to catch Blues Travel on July 4! 

With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what Parker has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start.

Happy exploring, Parker. We hope to see you around!
