July is by far the most jam-packed month for those seeking to enjoy a wealth of cultural and recreational experiences. The opportunities are endless-or at least, beyond what the average person can fit into any one day. See our calendar of events below-there’s truly something for everybody.
We hope this solstice finds you well and ready for another gorgeous summer in Sun Valley. And for those of you who are winter people, don’t worry-only 155 more days until Opening Day!

Top 5 Ways to Get the Most out of a Sun Valley Independence Day

1) Get Started Early. With so many activities, you’re going to need all the daylight that you can get. FYI: Sunrise on July 4, 2018 is at 6:01 am and sunset will be at 9:22.

2) Take A Hike. Really. Whether you go up north or stay right here in town, there are great options to get your heart pumping and take in beautiful views before a social afternoon.

3) Check out Hailey’s Day of the Old West Rodeo. Everyone should experience it once. Details here.

4) Barbecue. It’s a timeless tradition for a reason. What better way to enjoy friends and family than over a grill with burgers, dogs, and beer.

5) Watch the Fireworks. No independence day is complete without them! Head to Penny Hill on your cruisers (don’t forget blankets and your layers) and enjoy the show.
