Allentown Travel Tips
Find fun things to do in Allentown with our helpful travel guide.
Even though commemorated in song by Billy Joel in the 1980s as a down-on-its-luck city fighting the closure of steel factories, Allentown in Pennsylvania has recovered, shifting its new focus toward recreational and cultural attractions with a romanticism feel. Situated at the foothills of the Blue Mountains in Lehigh Valley, the town has amazing landscapes, including over 2,000 acres of unspoiled grassland. Travelers will also gaze at the town’s historic background, with several examples of late 19th-century architecture strewn throughout the fantastic downtown area. And when booking a room at one of the Choice Hotels in Allentown, you can feel at home in relaxing rooms with a wide variety of amenities.
Go on a relaxing stroll through Lehigh Parkway, which is a narrow green metropolitan space that runs for about four miles along both sides of Little Lehigh Creek. Take advantage of an afternoon of fishing, picnicking and horseback riding with the family. From November through January, the grounds host Lights in the Parkway—a seasonal light display that you can sightsee from your vehicle or from a horse-drawn buggy ride.
Romance is alive at the Malcolm W. Gross Memorial Rose Gardens, open all year from sunrise to sunset, in the heart of the city center. You and your loved one can walk hand-in-hand as you take in the smells of the garden’s several rose selections. Discover a night of extravagant culture out on the town with a trip to the Miller Symphony Hall all dressed up for a night of opera, classical music or ballet. This theater has a world-class setting, complete with two balconies and gigantic ceilings.
