2. Alpine Valley Music Theatre - East Troy, WI
There aren’t many reasons to visit East Troy in Wisconsin with the one exception being Alpine Valley Music Theatre. As the second-largest outdoor amphitheatre in the country, Alpine Valley is a sprawling venue capable of lifting any performance into greatness. While you wont find the same natural allure here as you would at places like The Gorge and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the place can hold it down in the entertainment department. After all, there’s a reason why The Grateful Dead have performed here over 20 times, and why Pearl Jam chose the venue for its 20th anniversary celebration.
