SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY here and we proudly present an issue dedicated to helping you get the most out of it. We kick things off with our annual Marin Summer Guide. You’ll find 52 pages of activities including everything from hiking to biking and, with a nod to the Rio Olympics, archery to volleyball. Pull the guide out and keep it with you all summer long; it’s good from June through August.

We’ve also got two features designed to keep you healthy and moving this summer. Writer PJ Bremier dips her toes into backyard pools and finds that whether you are looking for fun, escape or activity, there is definitely a solution for you. Next, executive editor Mimi Towle and photographer Joseph Schell take to the steps to produce the ultimate guide to the Dipsea Trail — Marin’s most famous hike and race destination.

We wrap up features with a look at Marin’s traffic nightmare. It’s not your imagination: it’s gotten worse. Writer Laura Hilgers looks into the causes and the solutions to a problem that is affecting everybody.

Up front we’ve got edible gardening tips and a peek at the hottest swimsuits and cover-ups. We also talk to a local entrepreneur, a Mill Valley florist, an Iron Chef champion and a soon-to-be Mill Valley mayor working to reduce America’s incarceration rate.

In Destinations we invite you to circumnavigate the clear blue of Lake Tahoe by paddleboard and read about travel writer Don George’s renewing trip to Kyoto, Japan.

We hope you enjoy our June issue, our annual summer guide and the many outdoor recreation options that make Northern California so special. And after all that, a refreshing dunk in the pool may be just the ticket.
