A quaint town self-named the “Christmas City,” Bethlehem and the greater Lehigh Valley area have a lot to offer. From hiking, biking and sport fishing around the Lehigh Canal, to amusement parks, a casino, eclectic shops and even an annual 10-day free music festival that welcomes more than 450 performers to the area each year, residents and visitors alike have a variety of activities at their fingertips.
With over 15,000 businesses established in this region, the Lehigh Valley features a diverse culture and a booming economy, and is home to some of the top school districts in Pennsylvania with three local districts being ranked among the top 200 in the state. Bethlehem specifically is also home to two higher education facilities – Lehigh University and Moravian College.
Located only 90 minutes away from both New York City and Philadelphia, less than 3 hours from Baltimore and Washington, D.C. and with two nearby airports – the Lehigh Valley International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport – Bethlehem’s location provides easy access to larger cities and travel hubs alike.
We know how special this city is and encourage you to come experience it for yourself!
