  • Ingram Planetarium presents laser music shows in its spectacular high-definition Sky Theater. These popular and entertaining shows feature colorful laser images displayed on the theater’s dome ceiling and are accompanied by loud music in a surround-sound environment. If you have never been to a laser music show, this is your opportunity to try one out. If you have been to one, then you will want to come back for an encore performance.

  • CALABASH—It’s a corner nook, just waiting for browsers to come and discover delights that await within.

    One of them is All About the Carolinas, a shop tucked away inside the Low Country Stores complex where browsers can find an array of items made in the Carolinas.

    Shop owner Sally Pennington says she’s trying to feature items made exclusively in North or South Carolina.

    “I thought it would be a real challenge to find things, but no,” says Pennington, tending to gift baskets behind the counter of her boutique.
