Average shops with good prices. If you need to buy some things, shop here if the stores they have carry what you want.

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.

Reviewed By kermitbrit - New York, NY

We had a couple visiting New York from England, and wanted to give them a break from the hustle bustle of city sightseeing, so we booked an overnight stay at Flint Hill Farm, not really knowing what to expect. Well, we were thrilled! The farmhouse is beautiful, and Kathy and the other folk who work on the farm could not be more welcoming. It was a wonderful experience: we fed the chickens, played with the goats, stroked the Shetland pony and miniature horse, watched the cows being milked, and enjoyed the ducks, pot-bellied pig and the beautiful outdoors. Our sweet guide was Rebecca, who clearly loves the animals and told us so much about them.

There are three bedrooms in the farmhouse. Because it is an old house, it has only one bathroom so the ideal way to visit is with friends! The bedrooms are lovely - a couple have balconies - and the beds are very comfortable. There is a big kitchen and attached dining room, with a cozy sitting area around the fire. We were really in heaven.

Kathy, the owner, is absolutely incredible and lovely. She looked after us so well -- and goodness knows how she found the time with all she has to do on a daily basis. We woke up to the smell of oatmeal & date muffins baking in the oven, and came downstairs to a feast including freshly baked bread, just-made butter, homemade cheese and yoghurt, omelette made with eggs from the farm, and coffee with milk from the cows.

Kathy runs the farm as a not-for-profit and invites groups of children from the community to enjoy the farm experience. She also runs all kinds of other activities including cheese-making classes and horseback riding.

Thoroughly recommended for a family weekend away at any time of year.

From the second I walked into the shop to the minute I left the cave, I felt as if I was their most important tourist. Nice small groups. Easy to hear the tour guide. Alexis, the guide, was most informative. Nature path and waterfalls are lovely.

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.

Top films, just a little later than the big guys. 1950's atmosphere, almost 1950's prices. Enjoy a shake/rattle/roll every time a train goes buy 40' outside the side doors. Wonderful. A treasure to our community.

Saucon Rail Trail

Reviewed By PennDale - Coopersburg, Pennsylvania

I've only done the Saucon Rail trail in legs - Coopersburg to Center Valley and Center Valley to Hellertown. It's a great walk and there are parking places along the way to make doing just a section easy.

At the mid-point (between Coopersburg and Hellertown) is the Upper Saucon Park and the Southern Lehigh Public Library. There are bathrooms outside of the library and a water fountain in warmer weather. If the library is open, there is bottled water for sale as well as coffee and cocoa and more bathrooms.

The trail is well maintained and popular - watch out for races in the Spring and early fall if you don't want to share the trail!

Putt U Miniature Golf

Reviewed By dar0898 - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania

Great mini putt for the whole family. Two courses at one location. Very challenging courses and some very long holes. Courses are in great shape and very clean. There is a pavilion nearby for birthday parties or larger groups to sit and eat. They have a food truck on site selling hot dogs and hamburgers and an ice dream shop as well. Plenty of free parking. Located close to Saucon Valley Promenade outdoor mall for other food choices.
Highly recommend PUTT U for family fun.

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.

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.
