Celebrate 4th of July In Summit County

Come to Summit County and celebrate Independence Day while taking in some of the nation’s most beautiful sites.

Surely when “purple mountain majesties” was written in 1913 it was referencing our very own majestic Rockies. Between the views and the weather, Summit County is the place to be in July.
