Bethlehem:  Discover a City That Shines Brighter Than Most

Founded by members of the Moravian community in 1741, Bethlehem is situated between Allentown and Easton. By 1758, 35 industries were located in Bethlehem, along with the original businesses set up by the Moravians; this area is now known as the Colonial Industrial Quarter and features the original water works, tannery and grain mill structures.

In 1899, with the organization of Bethlehem Steel Corp., the city became the center for heavy industry and trade; Bethlehem Steel most famously produced the steel for the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. Since the decline of the manufacturing industry in the 1970s and 1980s, this Lehigh Valley city has been transformed into a hub of fashionable and exciting dining, shopping and nightlife.

In the last decade, Bethlehem or “Christmas City” has experienced its own renaissance. The historic district, originally an area rich with the cultural traditions and religions of its many immigrants, is now home to the affectionately named “Restaurant Row” as well as art galleries and shops. The First Friday of every month shows off the best of the Southside district with music, entertainment and food at each of the eclectic shops and galleries participating in the First Friday Celebration.

Moravian College and Lehigh University are both in Bethlehem. Just Born makes its famous marshmallow Peeps® and Mike & Ike® candies here too.

Today, Bethlehem is known for its many annual events including Musikfest in August, Celtic Classic in September and Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem in November and December.
