The Greater Lehigh Valley: Yes! We Have That!

There’s nothing you can’t find in the Lehigh Valley.

First of all, the Lehigh Valley is set amid gentle hills and charming country sides. It is home to Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton, as well as dozens of small towns and picturesque boroughs. Steeped in pre-Colonial, Early American and industrial history, the region’s storied past became its uplifting present, providing a fun, safe, exciting and thriving place to live, work and raise a family.

New York-caliber restaurants? Got ‘em. Nationally recognized events like Musikfest and Christkindlemarkt (as well as smaller, quaint festivals)? Yup, they’re here. Beautiful parks and miles and miles of trails and waterways? You bet. Tons of outdoor adventure opportunities? Just think Pocono Mountains! World famous companies making some of the finest products around? How about Crayola Crayons, Yuengling Brewery and Martin Guitars to name a few. World-class museums? Yes. Exciting sports? Only if you like baseball, hockey, soccer, football and more! Excellent education? Hundreds of high schools and seven highly regarded colleges and universities. World class healthcare? St. Luke’s has that covered.

Travel outside the Lehigh Valley proper and you’re in for a treat. The towns, boroughs and small communities that make up the Greater Lehigh Valley offer history, adventure and an atmosphere of discovery that would take you a lifetime to explore. And if you like “the city,” take a day trip to New York, Philadelphia or Washington, DC – yes, they’re that close and just waiting for you...

The Greater Lehigh Valley has it all!
