Celebrate the summer solstice


One way to celebrate summer: Jazz in the Garden at the National Gallery. (Lavanya Ramanathan/The Washington Post)

We’re guessing you might not make it to Stonehenge to celebrate with the Druids, in which case you should take a look at our Summer Guide for ideas on how to ring in the soupy season (or the ice cream season, depending on your perspective).

We have the scoop on outdoor concerts, movies under the stars, new beach destinations, rooftop bars and a bucket list of all your summer must-dos. And if the muggy summer weather has you craving one thing — air conditioning — then take a look at our Summer Movie Guide for all the blockbusters and indie flicks that serve as perfect excuses for escaping the heat.
