At Lone Star Trapeze Academy, nothing but air and a safety net fills the vast distance between you and the ground. Classes teach fledgling trapeze artists how to navigate that wide open space by flipping and somersaulting through the air. Experts lead these private and group classes for people of all skill levels, available to circophiles aged 6 and older. Students begin by jumping off a 25-foot platform, using bars and swings to maintain their altitude, in much the same way as early birds did. The instructors help with every step of the process, ensuring the utmost in safety by fixing everyone with a safety belt before each high-flying maneuver.

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.
