    Built in 1936, the Shell once hosted acts like Elvis and Big Star. After years of disrepair it reopened in 2008 with help from the Levitt Foundation and is once again a great place to see live music.

    Bring a blanket, some nosh and a friend or two. A lightweight jacket or sweater wouldn't hurt as it tends to get cold in the fall. Excellent shows though.

    1954, Elvis played his first paid gig at the Shell. The headline act that evening and big star at the time was Slim Whitman. Elvis stole the show and Whitman went on to sell over 100 million albums.

    When at the free concert series, it's a good idea to go pee at 7:30 just before the show starts.

    If you bring your dog you have to sit outside the concrete walkway... No big deal, just a heads up.
