Summer Guide 2012: Girls of Summer and other seasonal pleasures

Cycling, canoeing, summer reading and hundreds of other things to do



Summertime, and the living is ... well, never easy here (see News Hits this week on Detroit economy). But all of us need some seasonal pleasures, and MT’s Summer Guide is here to help with yours. Editors Michael Jackman and Brian Smith reflect on memories (recent and not-so-recent) of canoeing and cycling. We’ve got summer reading tips, including some for Mad Men addicts entering post-season withdrawal. And beyond that ... just a couple hundred other suggestions for fun before fall.
