Ahhhh, summer is here. Time for backyard pool parties and family vacations. Time for kids to run after the ice cream truck when the telltale sound of its music turns onto your street to secure the perfect sweet treat to beat the heat. For the loud explosion of fireworks on the Fourth of July, the shriveled fingertips that signify too much time in the pool, and the soothing feeling of aloe vera on that patch of skin that always seems to turn red, no matter how much sunscreen you slather on.

This summer is a time to celebrate our independence, special anniversaries, veterans, heroes, volunteers and those who inspire us each day at Chesterfield Lifestyle! We are inspired by you, the community, and honored to celebrate one year as publishers in the beautiful community of Chesterfield.

Enjoy some great outdoor entertainment, destinations to travel, some easy treats and delicious beverages. If you are looking to stay closer to home, invite family and friends and throw a backyard soiree!

The mercury is rising, and the days are stretching longer and longer. No matter how you spend them, celebrate the days of summer, Chesterfield.
