    My favorite way to relax is to spend an hour or two wandering around the High. Not only a great way to relax and unwind it is also inspiring if you have any creative juices flowing through your body.

    If you are going as a family, check out the family membership. Its a great value ... with a surprise discount it turned out to be the same price as one visit. Bonus we skipped the line for tickets!

    The Tallis "Spem In Alium" recording is amazing. Forty speakers, each playing 40 individual singers in eight 5-part choirs. Listen just before it starts to hear the singers talking and warming up!

    Don't park in colony square even if you think it's convenient. It often has only one person working at night and you'll be stuck forever leaving a big event.
