Dublin, New Hampshire (June 16, 2009)–Yankee Magazine’s July/August issue, on newsstands June 30, 2009, celebrates summer in New England with the ultimate lighthouse guide, a story about Old Home Days, and a feature on one piece of furniture that embodies the season — the Adirondack chair. Tasty summer recipes featuring fresh local ingredients and a new look at Shingle-style homes on Cape Cod round out Yankee’s summer issue, enticing readers to explore and relax in New England this season.

“Around New England in countless small towns, summer means a return home for so many natives who have left,” says Mel Allen, Yankee’s editor. “Summer…with a good chair, something cold on the armrest, and good reading. Stay awhile.”
