SUMMER IN SWITZERLAND

Here’s something the Swiss don’t want you to miss. They’re called arteplages (art beaches), elaborate artistic installations that are a main attraction of Switzerland’s Expo.02. American Airlines’ new codeshare agreement with SWISS, the national airline of Switzerland, makes it a breeze to visit all five arteplages installed at waterfront sites along the Three Lake region. Each is architecturally unique, and each will serve as a stage for live music, dance, and theater. Catamarans ferry visitors to beaches in Biel, Murten, Neuchatel, Jura, and Yverdon-les-Bains. It’s the ideal way to experience the Expo, a nationwide celebration that runs through October 20. (877) 794-8037, www.expo.02.ch
