Located in eastern Pennsylvania to the north of Philadelphia’s suburbs is the Lehigh Valley. This two-county region might be the smallest in Pennsylvania, but there are many great things to do in the Lehigh Valley if you are looking for a fun getaway.
Three main cities make up the region: Allentown (the third-largest city in PA), Bethlehem, and Easton. These cities provide many big amenities for travelers looking to explore the region.
In the past, the Lehigh Valley was known as an industrial center, with Bethlehem Steel, one of the world’s largest businesses, highlighting a region that also included the headquarters of Mack Trucks and a thriving silk industry. You can learn more about these industries at the National Museum of Industrial History. Today, Crayola Crayons, Peeps, and Martin Guitars are some of the well-known products made in the region.
