Once you get settled, visit these attractions:
Take a step back in time to explore automobiles throughout the ages. At the America on Wheels Museum, see pedal cars from the early 1900s, snap a photo while sitting in a miniature Indy race car or enjoy an old-fashioned milkshake in the Hubcap Cafe.
Then, learn more about the Allentown area at the Museum of Indian Culture. The guided tour explains the lifestyle and culture of the Lenape (Delaware) and other American Indian tribes from the area.
If you are an art buff, do not miss the Allentown Art Museum of the Lehigh Valley. European paintings, textiles from five continents and American sculptures await.
From interactive displays to hands-on experiments, the Da Vinci Science Center is sure to keep the kids entertained for hours. Visitors can ride in a gyroscope, conduct science experiments and get close to nature in the Ocean Touch Tank.
In the afternoon, get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Walk or jog the paved trails at Cedar Creek Parkway, or smell the flowers in the rose garden. If you love to swim, you can do that too!
Finally, make a stop at the Allentown Fish Hatchery. Children can hand feed the trout, see the hatchery tanks up close and play in the surrounding park area. Be sure to save some of the fish food for the local ducks.
