Hilton Head, South Carolina

HiltonHead_KayakWith a friendly climate year-round, Hilton Head Island was made for outdoor activity. It’s the type of place where if “you can think of it, you can do it” practically every month of the year. Beach it, golf, fish, play tennis, bike, zip line, motorboat, Hilton Head has it all. However, this South Carolina barrier island is much more than just another pretty place. Hilton Head has a thriving community of art galleries, performing arts centers, museums, unique dining and festivals. The Cultural Traveler’s Hilton Head Arts...and All That Jazz tour starts with a private talk at the Art League of Hilton Head Gallery followed by music and dinner at The Jazz Corner. Get an insider's look of the Lowcountry's History & Nature on the tour that bares its name with a stroll through Historic Honey Horn and Heyward House, a Calibogue Cruise trip to Daufuskie Island, a two-hour guided Old Historic Daufuskie Island tour. During Jacob Preston's Pottery Studio Tour you’ll visit the master potter’s studio in Bluffton and receive an original Jacob Preston bowl, demonstration and gallery talk. Meet clay artist Laura Silberma who will be your guide on the Historic Bluffton Arts District Tour or spend time with Chef Michael Cerafesi as he prepares a menu with step-by-step procedures and helpful hints during the Cooking at Michael Anthony’s Cucina Italia tour.


Jamestown Settlement

JamestownAmerica’s first permanent English colony comes to life through film, gallery exhibits and outdoor living history at Jamestown Settlement. Visitors can learn about the Powhatan Indian, English and west central African cultures that converged on this Virginian land. Larger than life exhibits, including board replicas of ships, the colonists' fort and a Powhatan village, paint a vivid picture of America’s beginnings. Unique museums and galleries along with costumed historical interpreters describe and demonstrate daily life in the early 17th century. HistoryisFun.org


Laguna Beach, California

LagunaBeach thumbDon’t be fooled by the breezy, laidback, sandy beaches that stretch along the shores of Laguna Beach. This more-than-a-beach-town town is alive with culture and has a diverse events calendar that proves it. Festivals, shows, events, workshops and concerts are enjoyed throughout the year. If you visit in October you can witness the Plein-Air Painting Invitational which presents a weeklong landscape painting festival focusing on the community, environment and art education. Take in a show at the Laguna Playhouse, the oldest continuously operating theatre on the West Coast. The best part about Laguna Beach is that even with its diverse menu of cultural experiences, those breezy, laidback, sandy beaches are always available for a stroll.


Loveland, Colorado

LovelandJust 45 minutes north of Denver, Loveland is an authentic arts community. Art in Loveland is a major part of its community and includes performing arts, entertainment and museums. Begin an artistic adventure by viewing over 380 individual works of art on public display throughout the city. Or visit the city’s beautifully restored historic theater and nationally accredited art and history museum. Either way you’ll be rewarded with artistic and natural beauty abound.
