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.

In 1928, four musicians from an Ann Arbor church joined together to play at services. Decades later, after several names and a number of music directors, the orchestra continues strong. Current music director Arie Lipsky leads the group through programs tailored for listeners of all ages, from evenings of Tchaikovsky and Dvo??k to family-friendly sing-alongs. That emphasis on accessibility even extends beyond the orchestra?the orchestra reaches out to the community with a number of school programs that engage and transform music for children.?

The nation's fourth-oldest orchestra, the DSO has been filling Detroit's music halls with top-notch euphony since 1887. By the 1920s, the orchestra came into its own, entering a golden age that saw them hosting such legends as Igor Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. After financial difficulties put the outfit's hall in jeopardy, a multi-decade fund-raising effort led to their triumphant return home in 1989. Today, the orchestra remains one of the most recorded symphonies in the country, bringing the classical canon to millions of listeners and giving orchestra members something to blast at family gatherings when their siblings start talking about their jobs.

Resting in the shadows of Comerica Park and Ford Field, Hockeytown Cafe has become a gathering spot for Detroit sports fans whether it's game day or not. Wall-to-wall memorabilia and other iconic symbols occupy just about every inch of the three-story space, with motorcycles hanging from the walls alongside framed jerseys and photos. Any space that is left is taken up by more than 30 HD-TVs, which light up with images from Red Wings, Tigers, Pistons, and Lions games. While the games play out, friends sip more than 50 beers from around the world?including 18 on tap?and dig into plates of pub-style food. This includes baked mac 'n cheese topped with pulled pork and Boss Hog burgers piled high with pork, bacon, and crispy onion straws. After patrons have fueled up, Hockeytown Cafe transports them to Red Wings home games via free shuttle service, meaning fans never have to strap on their skates and glide there themselves.
