Have Some Laughs: After going dark for more than a year, Hard Rock Live—the state-of-the-art indoor venue at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino—once again is welcoming entertainers back to South Florida. On Sept. 2-3, one of the nation’s hottest stand-up comics, Sebastian Maniscalco, takes the stage as part of his “Nobody Does This Tour.” The Chicago-area native, who has a food show coming to Discovery-Plus later this year, sold out arenas during his past two tours. Also on tap this fall: standup Tom Segura (Oct. 1), followed the next night by rock legends Guns N’ Roses (Oct. 2).

In addition to the drive-through preserve—divided into seven areas (including spaces with kudus, impalas, giraffes, waterbucks, Southern White rhinos, and African lions)—visitors can enjoy the kids rides, splash park, petting zoo, and (on weekends) the fun slide and Safari Plunge water slide.
