University Campuses
We have several really super Universities near Fresh Air and Peace
*UConn's Dairy Bar serves up ice cream that's worth the trip on its own! Do. Not. Miss. This. *The Benton Museum of Art; the horse and dairy barns; the lovely campus *The Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts is a public performing arts venue located on the University of Connecticut's main campus in Storrs. From student led productions to summer shows featuring stars from Broadway and Hollywood, there's something for everyone in Jorgensen's theatrical season. With unique offerings such as cabaret-style seating, where patrons can wine and dine at their own private table during the production, this venue provides a quality experience at reasonable rates. *The Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry is one of America’s hidden treasures—a superb collection of over 2,500 puppets from all over the world. It is also the new home of the Puppeteers of America’s Audio-Visual Collection: the largest collection of videotapes, films, and other media about puppetry in the United States. The Ballard Institute curates and produces exhibitions of puppetry, both at the Ballard Museum and for touring across the United States. The Institute also offers workshops, museum tours, artists’ forums, film showings, performances, and other events and programs that promote the art of puppetry as a twenty-first-century art form with deep historic and global roots. *And if all that isn't exciting enough...you can always try out ice skating at UConn's rink!
