Plan the classic Sun Valley stay with the Sun Valley Guide’s "summer standards".

1 Ride with a view: Take River Run chairlift to the top of Baldy for a spectacular view of the Wood River Valley. For the more adventurous, bring the bike along and careen down on two wheels.

2 Cruise the Big Wood: Soak up the sounds of the river as you cycle along the Wood River Trail bike path. Keep an eye out for the local bears and moose.

3 Savor sandwiches and symphony: Picnic in style at the Sun Valley Summer Symphony while being serenaded by world-class musicians.

4 Forage from field to fork: Pick through produce fresh from the farm at Tuesday’s Farmers’ Market.

5 Walk the galleries: Stroll down First Avenue and gawk at great art and fabulous people during
Ketchum’s monthly Gallery Walk.

6 Hit the "mall": Following a leisurely lunch in one of Ketchum’s gourmet eateries, take a stroll along Sun Valley Road and veer onto Walnut Avenue for four blocks of fabulous shopping.

7 Hang with Hemingway: Trace Ernest’s history. Visit his memorial at Trail Creek, pay your respects at his grave in the Ketchum Cemetery and stop in at the Community Library on Spruce Street to immerse yourself in his words.

8 See stars on ice: Wonder at the skills of international ice-skating stars spinning on the ice at the Sun Valley Resort’s Saturday night Ice Shows.

9 Find treasures at the festivals: Browse beautiful arts and crafts in July at the Ketchum Arts Festival (Sun Valley Meadow) and in August at the Sun Valley Arts & Crafts Festival (Atkinson Park).

10 Lose yourself in the music: Tear up a Tuesday evening with a free Ketch’em Alive outdoor concert in the historic Forest Service Park.

11 Wow your water babies: in Ketchum’s state-of-the-art YMCA swimming pool. A fun-filled afternoon for children of all ages.
