Expresso Airport Parking takes the hassle out of preflight parking, safely stowing automobiles while their owners are out of town. Partake in complimentary coffee, muffins, and newspaper after half-heartedly promising to send your car a postcard, and board the company shuttle, which whisks travelers to the terminal in about eight minutes. Both the indoor- and valet-parking options include protected parking, and the latter service offers luggage assistance and vehicle retrieval. As an added resource, voyagers can check the Expresso’s current-flight-status page for real-time updates on airline schedules and air-traffic-controller personals.

New Zealand based Jucy Rentals? lauded in Cond? Nast Traveler, the L.A Times, and the New York Times ? proves the adage that great things come in small packages. Exported to the U.S. in 2012, their cheery green minivans hit the road in disguise, appearing as humble, standard passenger vehicles with some storage on top and great paint jobs. Once stopped, however, they transform into a cozy campervan that sleeps up to four. Pop the container atop the van and pull down the ladder to enter the Penthouse, a roomy pod-tent. Inside the main cabin, the passenger seats morph into a comfortable bed, or make way for the screw-in table stored beneath them. A refrigerator, sink, and two gas cookers fill the trunk, a TV and DVD player folds down from the ceiling, and blinds allow for privacy as passengers weep for joy.

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.
