People tend to walk slowly through The National Civil War Museum?both out of respect for the fallen soldiers and sheer awe at how much there is to see. The institution strives to cover the events before, during, and after the war without bias to either the Union or Confederate cause.

  • Size: with 21,000 historic documents and 4,400 artifacts rotating in and out of exhibits on two floors, the museum recommends reserving 2 to 4 hours for a visit
  • Eye Catcher: Moment of Mercy?a statue outside the museum that depicts Richard Kirkland, a confederate sergeant who gave water to wounded Union troops
  • Permanent Mainstay: Weapons & Equipment, a collection of rifles and uniforms from both sides of the Mason Dixon
  • Temporary Exhibit: 1864?the first of four special exhibits to cover specific years of the war and part of the museum's lead up to the Civil War's 150th anniversary
  • Don't Miss: a giant, interactive video wall, where President Abraham Lincoln answers questions about anything except his hat
  • Leave Your Mark: descendants of Civil War veterans can purchase memorial bricks that add their relatives' names to the museum's Walk of Valor

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

Theatre Harrisburg has always had community at its heart. Born in the "Little Theatre Movement" of the 1920s, the first place it called home was the basement of the Harrisburg Public Library. It was there that Mrs. Peters, president of the Women's University Club, gathered nine other women to discuss the creation of a volunteer-based company that could produce quality plays. And the women took action. For decades volunteers on and off the stage bounced from venue to venue putting on shows such as The Dover Road, until 1950, when it found its first home at Sixth and Hurlock in uptown. Then, in 1997, the Theatre made a commitment to be the resident company at the new Whitaker Center. Still, whether putting musicals such as The Rocky Horror Show or non-musical dramas, such as a version of Death of a Salesman with all the tap numbers taken out, Theatre Harrisburg relies on the talent of the community.

Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.

Just Plain Yoga wants its visitors to find the perfect fit when it comes to yoga technique. They offer a questionnaire to identify the right class for each student, based on how rapidly or slowly they want to move, as well as whether they want to achieve relaxation, increase flexibility, or build strength in your third eyelash. The studio offers 11 different styles for intrepid yogis, including gentle hatha sessions that link breath to body, and morning vinyasa flow to jump-start the day. Hesitant first-timers are especially invited to the ?yoga for any body? class, a gentle, welcoming class for anyone who thinks they are too inflexible or overweight to do yoga.
