Though Wilford and Olive Arms haven't lived in their house for decades, the sprawling Arts and Crafts-style stone building still holds their story. Today, the original period rooms house the Arms Family Museum of Local History, where permanent and temporary exhibits interpret different facets of the estate's—and the surrounding area's— history. One explores the home's conception and construction with original photographs, sketches, and Lego models, while another unveils the history of radio-broadcasting in Mahoning Valley. The Valley Experience exhibit, meanwhile, showcases the Mahoning River region's cultural past, focusing on the daily lives of those who lived there, from the first Native Americans to European immigrants to African-American freemen.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
Skate Zone Fun Center houses six different zones that give visitors a variety of entertainment options. The skating rink entices them to strap on a set of wheels and glide through crowds while a live DJ spins popular radio hits. Laser Storm thrusts competitors into a friendly game of laser tag that requires quick reflexes and cunning to outscore their opponents. Suspended over the skating rink, Web City contains 10,000 square feet of rope mazes and obstacles. The 18-hole mini-golf course tests players' putting skills, and the bumper cars arena provides student drivers with a safe way to practice true-to-life parallel parking. Meanwhile, video game players in the arcade zone can redeem their tickets for prizes.
Getting kids started at a young age builds a strong foundation for the future—whether it's heading to competition or simply learning the value of self-discipline. At Olympic Dreams, students as young as 18 months can enroll in gymnastic classes that work to develop coordination, physical prowess, and how to execute a perfect-10 somersault. In addition to general gymnastics courses for boys and girls, the center also offers more specialized and focused classes, such as tumbling and trampoline.
With more than 80 seasons of emotive experience, The Youngstown Playhouse has been treating Mahoning Valley audiences to Broadway plays, youth theater, and other quality community productions for generations. One of the season’s six main-stage plays, the Tony Award–winning musical, Oliver!, carouses audiences into the chilly alleys, dark corners, and haggis-laden streets of Victorian-era London in a show-stopping adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic coming-of-age story. Centered around the trials and tribulations of a penniless orphan, Oliver! will delight theater-goers of all ages as they follow along with his rags-to-riches story, and sing along to famous songs such as Consider Yourself, You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two and Oklahoma!

After five years away from American stages, the immutable hard-rock juggernaut Guns N’ Roses reuses its illusions to whip crowds into a frenzy during a notoriously raucous live show. Enigmatic siren Axl Rose, beloved for his punk-rock stance against prolificacy, leads his wrecking crew of Roses through a two-hour tour of greatest hits culled from the band's groundbreaking debut album, Appetite for Destruction, the long-awaited Chinese Democracy, and everything in between. The group soars and shines throughout a marathon performance, ranging from turbo-charged rockers such as “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” through ballads such as “November Rain.” With hatless new axeman Dj Ashba stepping into the shoes of Slash, and The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson replacing Duff McKagan, Guns N’ Roses is recharged and ready to quench destructive appetites with pure organic rock wrung from handpicked bandanas.

The experienced instructors at Ruth's Robics and Dance Co. guide groups of fitness-seekers through body-strengthening, Pilates, and step aerobic, and strength-training
classes while stressing improved balance and muscle control. Body-strengthening sessions pit complacent fibers against an emotionless trio of weights, resistance bands, and balls, which sculpt toned torsos and prompting shy curves to emerge from epidermal covers. Flat surfaces form the foundation for most buildings and for step aerobics classes, which begin with an upbeat cardio routine before transitioning into floor exercises that target major muscle groups. Link your brain to your body through breathing exercises during Pilates classes, which
focus on core conditioning to fortify postures, strengthen abs, and help trainees achieve a leaner, healthier look.
Winners of 16 2010 Youngstown Area Community Theatre Marquee Awards—including best direction and best play—The Victorian Players present plays written in and inspired by the Victorian era. The company is dedicated to presenting family-friendly theater, eschewing stagefare that includes profanity, violence, or graphic onstage depictions of drunken robots. The Madwoman of Chaillot tells the story of the titular character, a quirky aristocrat who gathers an army of café-goers, performers, and fellow madwomen to halt the machinations of an evil coterie of businessmen planning to dig up Paris for its underground stores of oil. Shows take place in a restored 1890s Victorian church, imparting a period-appropriate architectural flavor to the dramatic proceedings.

Sprawled out across 4,400 acres of public land and facilities, Mill Creek MetroParks attracts nearby humans with recreational activities such as boating and fishing. Rentals—which are available Wednesday–Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.—allow lounge-arounders to abandon dry land and its tendency to get dirt on everything by hopping aboard a boat with a ninesome of loved ones, then gliding off to explore 44 acres of steel-blue ripples surrounded by soothing emerald foliage. The nearby trails, gardens and Visitor & Education Center make it possible to extend the adventure even after the 60 minutes of floating are up.
