    To my way of thinking, entertainment involves some people doing and others just watching or listening. Recreation involves everyone doing something pleasant.

    entertainment is an action performed by others to entertain you, or an action you take to entertain others.

    Recreation ia an activity undertaken by you, because you enjoy it, ie: reading /fishing
