Exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Battleship New Jersey was launched into an ocean roiled by the conflicts of World War II. Its storied journey would continue on through the Korean and Vietnam Wars as well as a stint in President Reagan's 600-ship Naval fleet. Now the nation's most decorated battleship, the 887-foot-long, 45,000-ton, 18-story vessel resides on the Camden Waterfront, serving as a living history museum and a reminder that boats aren't just for towing water-skiers to work. Today, guests get a glimpse of what life was like for a sailor on the ship. Tours let visitors walk across the forecastle, stand beside gun turrets capable of firing 19,000-pound rounds, and even sit in the same chair from which Admiral William Halsey directed the ship through the South Pacific in World War II.

The creators of the The Colorful 5K use the term ?run? very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, The Colorful 5K encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.

Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
