A summer town?

I've lived in Jyväskylä for almost eight years. It's one of the numerous Finnish towns that are regarded as a "summer city", meaning that one should only visit them during summer. It's certainly true that a tourist will find it easiest to spend time in Jyväskylä during summer. The pedestrian street (Kävelykatu) has pub and shopping possibilities that are most pleasant at warm weather. It's pleasant to walk, or better, to bicycle, around and pay attention to small details.
