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.
Visiting the third largest city in Pennsylvania will leave travelers with no shortage of activities! Allentown is famous for its museums, attractions, and recreational opportunities. The city features the Allentown Art Museum, the Da Vinci Science Center, and Coca-Cola Park, home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Allentown also has its own amusement and water park, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom! For even more fun, Philadelphia is only a day trip away. This Lehigh Valley gem has something for the whole family.
A reincarnation of itself, a spot that reflects and respects its past but seamlessly blends the hip with the historic, Lehigh Valley has developed rich, sustained art and entertainment scene, especially when it comes to living music. Famous names pack historic theaters, churches, and outdoor pavilions for legendary rockstars, blues artists, country singers, and internationally acclaimed musicians who bridge genres from Afrobeat to Zydeco, all while visitors can tour the factory where Martin Guitars are handcrafted.
Just the sight of covered bridges suggests thoughts of old charm and romance. In Lehigh Valley, seven of the slightly more than 200 covered bridges in Pennsylvania are still standing and welcome visitors. Five of these, which are open for traffic, often are taken for granted when crossed by busy travelers every day. The Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge Tour offers an opportunity to journey back in time to a quieter, more idyllic way of life.
