There is perhaps no better way to find the interesting sites in your community than on foot. The historic locations and quaint shops of center city Bethlehem, for example, make it the quintessential downtown shopping district.
Within this diverse terrain live diverse communities, a population that is growing. In fact, there are nearly 10,000 more of us this year than in 2005. Many families have discovered the Lehigh Valley is a perfect place to raise their children and build their careers because of the growing economy, low unemployment and proximity to the metropolitan areas. The difference is that the Valley mixes quiet suburbs and quaint Main Streets with all the services and amenities of thriving cities.
Whether you're new to the area or were born here, the community guidebook is designed to provide you with information about living in the Greater Lehigh Valley. From the phone numbers of your local government representatives to trash collection and recycling, you'll find the answers to your questions here.
Use the guide year round to find things to do and places to go. It will help you discover the region for the first time or introduce you to it all over again.
