Summit is a great community offering a unique residential character combined with great transportation resources, an outstanding educational system, and a retail downtown.
Summit Merchants pride themselves on the fact that "Summit Means Service". A wide variety of stores and shops, selling high-quality merchandise and offering first-rate service grace the nine blocks of Summit's downtown retail area. Many excellent restaurants with varied cusines call Summit home. In warmer weather, outdoor cafe-style dining is popular. Two small parks offer seating and shade, and ample parking (free to shoppers) is provided by five Park & Shop lots and two multi-level garages. Downtown events bring many people to the area.
The Suburban Chamber of Commerce, a presence in Summit since 1917, manages a Gift Certificate program for all downtown businesses. There are no fees of any kind. What a great option for those teacher, coach, or employee recognition gifts!
Through The Suburban Chambers of Commerce Foundation, a $1,500 scholarship -- The William Stampes / Perry Root Memorial -- is awarded to a graduating senior at Summit High School.
