Select Local Merchants

The wait for movie concessions shouldn't be as long as the movie itself. At Westown Movies, selecting a snack is as easy as dashing into a corner store?just grab what you want from the shop and then get into the checkout line. Beyond popcorn and soda, you'll also find tasty treats from local vendors, such as Pat's pizza, Pretzel Boys pretzels, and fresh whoopee pies from Smackerals by Michelle.

All these snacks keep rumbling tummies from drowning out the dialogue during a variety of first-run movies. Of Westown's 12 screens, the biggest is the GTX theater's 61-footer, equipped with Dolby Atmos sound and stadium seating with extra legroom. Aside from cinematic features, Westown Movies also rents out its screens for game parties, when guests can hook up their video-game systems and play out their own adventures on a grand, cinematic scale.

The idyllic surroundings of The Vineyard at Hershey include acres of rolling vineyards and a natural, spring-fed pond. Inside a rustic farmhouse, guided tours take an in-depth look into the winemaking process, and end with tastings of small-batch Pennsylvania wines. Walk across the lawn to find the brewery, where brewmasters pour nearly 20 beers ranging from crisp hefeweizens to hop-heavy IPAs, with different brews crafted at different times of the year. Throughout the year, the Vineyard hosts events such as wine and beer release parties and concerts, including the summertime Decked-Out Live! Entertainment Series.

As a conglomerate of paintball facilities, Paintball International offers many distinct destinations for chromatic outdoor combat. Some fields, such as Splat Zone Paintball in Louisiana, challenge players to find adequate cover in an arena littered with creative obstacles. In Massachusetts, PnL Paintball thrusts players into a realistic Ghost Town, comprised of churches, multilevel buildings, and stone walls. Meanwhile, trees, leaves, stacked wood, and foliage inside K.C. Crusaders offer players all-natural hiding places from which they can spring forth to surprise their rivals or remain undetected while they determine the color palette they will use to paint Water Lilies on the surrounding bunkers.

Outdoor Xtreme Chesapeake City amps up fun and imagination with eight battle fields where fans of paintball and airsoft can safely play out realistic battle scenarios. Elaborate, multi-level structures and makeshift shacks offer decent protection, while a downed nose-in-the-dirt airplane makes for a perfect rallying point. If players still need a place to duck and cover, they can always march to the rusty barrels in front the oil refinery. To lend authenticity to each scenario, all of these fields are lined with actual grass and framed by real trees, instead of actors who play trees.
