Martin Guitars

Whether making guitars for god (Eric Clapton) or mortals, Martin Guitar does all 300 steps by hand.

Reviewed By Hawkshoe - Pennsylvania

If you have any interest in how guitars are made, then you should definitely head to Nazareth, PA and take the tour of Martin's guitar factory. The tour lasts about an hour and takes you right into the action. You get to see all phases of the guitar making process happening feet/inches away. The only downside to the tour was that the group size is to large so those in the back are left not really being able to ask questions. You do where a headset so you can hear the explanation but If you are in the back, you aren't even looking at what is being described. Also, there is quite a bit of interference through the headset at times. Still, you can get a good feel for the production process.

In addition to the factory tour, there is a museum which is quite nice. It tells the history of the Martin business and has memorabilia. We spent about 45 minutes in the museum. There is also a store and a nice area where you can try out a few of the guitars for yourself.

Coca-Cola Park

Reviewed By lorraine d - Coopersburg, Pennsylvania

Everyone has to come to this stadium for a fun day with the family. There is a really good variety of food and drink that you can purchase. The prices are more than affordable. If you are going to a day game, make sure to put on the suntan lotion. You are very exposed to the sun, that would be the only bad thing I could say about this field. There is a cozy "Beer Garden" where you can have a adult beverage away from the crowd.

The State Theatre is a restored historic gem for the City of Easton. This venue brings into Easton the highest quality of entertainment and talent. If you are in the area you would be remiss not to stop by and see a show.

SteelStacks

SteelStacks is a ten-acre campus in Bethlehem, PA, dedicated to arts, culture, family events, community celebrations, education and fun. The campus is in the shadow of the blast furnaces of the former Bethlehem Steel plant.

Reviewed By Newsdoc - Malibu, California

We were hoping for an outdoor experience, similar to European Christmas Markets. Instead, everything is located inside heated tents -- which totally detract from the experience. Much of the merchandise was just okay (and the one genuine German products vendor was insanely overpriced), but we did end up finally finding a few things we liked. As for Steelstacks, the owners should be applauded for repurposing the old mill in a very interesting way.

The Roxy Theatre

Reviewed By 4038 - Pa.

The Roxy Theatre in Northampton, Pa. is great! A MUST SEE for Theatre buffs!
The theatre has been in the hands of Richard Wolfe for decades. He is an authority on old theatres from all over the country. His knowledge of silent and vaudville theatres is like an encyclopedia. Ask him a question about an old theatre, and he will have an answer for you!
He has transformed the theatre, which opened in 1921, back to the look of the day from the Deco period of design of the 30's. He installed new seating reminiscent of the period, as well as restoring the original deco interior painting on the walls and ceiling, reproduction Deco carpeting, Deco candy stand, and even replaced the long gone theatre pipe organ!
As you drive down the street at night you will see the original huge lighted marquee with the big flashing and twirling lights reading "Roxy", just as they did for 80+ years!
It is so nice to go in, sit down and be amazed. No glaring white screen hanging in front of you as in modern box theatres. The house has the original stage and when entering, you are greeted by the sight of colored footlights lighting the gold brocade curtain covering the screen. The performance is about to begin and the lights slowly dim, the footlights change color, the sound comes up and the curtains open to reveal the show of the night!
It's truely a venture into the past and not to be missed if you are in the N.E. Pa. area of the Lehigh Valley.
Look it up on the computer for pictures and the complete history.
See you at the movies!!!

America On Wheels Museum

Reviewed By Liz S - Pennsylvania

My husband and I took our adult children and our grandchildren to America on Wheels Museum during the Christmas school break. What a delightful experience. Everyone was so kind to the children (ages 14 to 6). In addition to the cars, we really enjoyed the multiple train displays. For the largest display, there was a scavenger hunt for the children to find fun objects on the display. When they were done, each received a candy cane and small gift. Smiles all around. Additionally, at 12:30 PM, there was a performance in the 'diner' room. In addition to a guitarist singing songs about different transportation vehicles, there were activities for the children to do. The most favorite was decorating an upside down sugar cone into a Christmas tree. Decorate now; eat later. So, take your children. It's great.

Hoover Mason Trestle

Reviewed By duck8to - Montville, New Jersey

In the early twentieth century, Bethlehem Steel was one of the premier steel producers in the country. The George Washington and Golden Gate bridges, the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, Hoover Dam and Rockefeller Center are all testaments to Bethlehem Steel's importance in the steel industry. Today you can experience the Bethlehem Steel Story through either a self-guide or guided tour experience. Both tours begin at the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is a brick building located in the Steel Stacks Complex. The Steel Stacks Complex is adjacent to the Sands Casino. The Visitors Center has a continuous running video about the history of Bethlehem Steel. They also have interactive displays highlighting the history, culture and recreational attractions of the Lehigh Valley. This is also where you can begin your trestle tour. You can take the elevator up to the outdoor trestle or walk up the steel staircase. The self guided tour is free as are the displays and video in the Visitor Center.. There are placards along the 1/4 mile trestle with placards explaining history and steel making. At the end of the route you can walk back or descend to street level via a steel stairway.There are plenty of benches along the route. Additionally, there are great views of the 100 ton fly wheel, huge iron ore cars and immense blast furnaces. Views of St. Michael's Cemetery are also worthwhile .If you decide on the guided tour, check the website for the staring times. The tour costs $15 for adults, $9 for 7-17 year olds. Tickets can be purchased at the Visitor Center or online at the website. At night, the movie theater is lite up with multicolored lights and creates a splendid image. The theater also offers a movie called "The Rise & Fall of Bethlehem Steel" for a $3 charge.

Klein Farms Dairy and Creamery

Reviewed By alopez7784 - Holly Springs, North Carolina

We stopped here after touring Martin Guitars and were happy we did. Took a short walk to see the animals which were all adorable. Everyone in the shop was friendly and helpful. Picked up some cheese spreads which were really yummy and had some delicious ice cream while there. There is limited seating inside so if it’s cold outside and crowded it may be difficult to eat your ice cream comfortably.

I stopped into this museum with some family on a day off. This museum focuses primarily on the four main industries that formed the core of Bethlehem, PA, and therefore the nation: iron, steel, propane, and silk. Bethlehem is best known for Bethlehem Steel, which...MoreThanks for the great review, glad you enjoyed your visit to NMIH!
