    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.

  • North Carolina Theatre
    Opera is an art form with a grand tradition, but that doesn't mean it can't be accessible. Enter North Carolina Opera?from stage left, singing?a company that makes its mission sharing this unique art form with everyone. Its skilled performers travel to audiences across the Triangle, staging productions in both full-sized theaters and intimate school auditoriums. The opera's repertoire is just as wide-ranging; seasons have included favorites such as La Boheme and Cosi Fan Tutte, as well as lesser-known gems like Rusalka and contemporary works by Philip Glass and John Supko. Lavish costumes and sets further entice onlookers to escape into North Carolina Opera's fantastical worlds.

  • Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek
    311 and Sublime with Rome bring their blends of chugging rock and sauntering reggae outside, coating the coasts in good vibes on their summer Unity Tour 2011. Known for hits such as ?Down? and ?Don?t Tread on Me,? 311 inspires legions of fans to bob their heads, nod their feet, and jam city switchboards with reports of dance-induced potholes. Touring behind its latest album, Universal Pulse, 311 provide a rhythm-heavy soundtrack for the summer. Tag-teaming the stage, Sublime with Rome shoots hits from the band?s supernal cannon up into the grateful skies, as new frontman Rome Ramirez upholds the seminal band?s legacy with tantamount vocals and a swagger found only in John Wayne?s rasta period.

  • Kings of Leon
    More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.

  • The Broken Road Bank
    Gregory Vineyards Owner and vintner Dr. Lane Gregory and his staff of merry winemakers harvest their wine grapes from the fertile muscadine vines that flourish on Gregory Vineyards' 120 acres of lush farmland. The winery's Old World tasting room and wood furniture lend a rustic atmosphere to samplings of cleverly named wines such as Sly Fox, Ruth Walton, or the dry white known as Bald Eagle. Like North Carolina's banana trees, the regional muscadine grape thrives from late August until early October, giving Dr. Gregory and company only a matter of weeks to harvest the tough-skinned fruit. In addition to tastings, the handsome property plays host to weddings and other special events. And, on an average day, visitors may be spotted taking wine tours with Dr. Gregory or exploring the vineyard's lake on romantic two-person pedal boats.
