Everything! From the Pavilion to the Parking and all that's inbetween. Gerry thought of everything---even the "no waiting" Ladies Room. Listening to the concerts(New York Phiharmonic) while laying on the lawn is my favorite way to listen.

“Don't miss it- one of the best concert venues ever!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Living fairly close to Bethel Woods ( an hour away), we discovered that it is one of the most pleasant ways to attend a concert ( large or small- from Elton John and Sting, to Santana, Dave Matthews, Tim McGraw and the jazz festival ) It is probably one of the most enjoyable things you can do on a summer evening and the experience gets better every year as the word spreads about what a great venue this is ( this year's lineup already includes Ringo starr and the Beach Boys reunion, and they haven't even announced the BIG names yet :-) Lawn passes are a bargain and in my opinion, more enjoyable than the covered seats (unless it rains)- food choices are varied and rest rooms are clean and well stocked always. Parking is fine, although like every major concert venue, expect delays in leaving at the end. Make time to visit the Museum while there- parents and grandparents will be transported back to the 60s and they will thank you for taking them !
