With a team of instructors having more than two more decades of experience, Rainbow Vision Stained Glass expands the community of glass workers through small group classes. Students gather within Rainbow Vision Stained Glass’s sprawling Victorian-style headquarters to learn the fundamentals of making stained glass or the more sophisticated techniques necessary for crafting glass boxes, Tiffany-style lampshades, or glass houses for those who have sworn off throwing rocks.

Anticipating the needs of its pupils, Rainbow Vision Stained Glass peddles everything a glass artist might desire. More than 400 styles and colors of glass gleam within, more than 300 pattern books await crafters in need of inspiration, and soldering irons stand ready to bind creations together.

In 1937, Milton Hershey, founder of the eponymous chocolate company, wanted to build a "nice garden of roses," so the 3.5-acre Hershey Gardens were born. Over time, it has grown into a 23-acre paradise filled with seasonal flowers such 5,000 rose bushes and 30,000 tulips. Themed gardens welcome visitors of every taste to wander among ornamental rocks and grasses or smell aromatic herbs. The Children's Garden features hideaways and whimsical characters to enliven imaginations, and the Butterfly House, which opens May 23, shelters hundreds of North American butterflies in a walkthrough exhibit every summer.
Nestled amid freshly manicured lawns and lush overhanging greenery, Boiling Springs welcomes swimmers to its family-friendly pools, three waterslides, and full-service snack area.

Each plummet deposits dunkers into one of Boiling Springs’ four swimming sectors, which include a main 150'x50' pool as well as a miniature lagoon for pint-sized paddlers. Sun-soakers can smoothly tip shades when admiring the newly-installed decks, or indulge in a post-swim feast from the on-site snack bar, chock-full of ice cream, grilled fare, and refillable sports bottles. Boiling Springs Pool is open Memorial Day through Labor Day; guests can check the calendar for specific hours.
