actor's theatre of louisville
most notable as the home of the Humana Festival (March-April yearly), this regional theatre is much cooler than it lets on during the rest of the year.

american visionary art museum
possibly the best thing on baltimore's inner harbor, the vam features a wide variety of work created by self-taught artist's whose bios appear to say they're all schizophrenic. that must be the secret - the vast majority of work here is compelling and stare-worthy. add a small but fabulous gift shop and pricey but fabulous cafe, and your whole day is planned. ps - i so would want to have my wedding in the tall sculpture barn, if i ever decided to get married.
