It’s that time of year celebrated by sports fans around the country. NFL football camps have opened – and that means the NFL season is on its way, and games will soon return to your television screens. However, there are still a few weeks before preseason hits, so in the meantime, check out the summer series offerings and the concert tours before we head to the busy fall season.

If you’re on the East Coast, we hope you stay cool, as temps are expected to normalize for a moment. If you, like President Obama, weren’t invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this weekend, well, you’ll be okay. Check our list to see what’s going on around your way instead.
