Set amid gentle hills and charming countrysides, Lehigh Valley, Pa. is home to Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, as well as dozens of small towns and picturesque boroughs, parks, trails, and waterways.
Steeped in pre-Colonial, Early American, and industrial history, the region’s storied past became its uplifting present, bestowing visitors anything from crayons and craft beer to Martin Guitars and museums, covered bridges, and nationally-recognized events like Musikfest and Christkindlmarkt. A stay in Lehigh Valley will lift your spirits, too.
And there’s plenty of options to keep them soaring: an 80-foot roller coaster climb, a ghostly presence as it saunters up to you at a local tavern, a chance to savor the flavors of the region. We’ve rounded up suggestions to put a smile on your face.
