If it’s just you and your special someone looking for a nice retreat, you’ll want to start by making your way through a few wineries located on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. There are nine destinations to choose from, but we would suggest clustering them by location. The family‑owned wineries are all designated as an American Viticultural Area.
Once you have had your share of vino, head to the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks. While there, grab a bite to eat and catch a movie inside the state‑of‑the‑art Frank Banko Alehouse Cinema. And yes, as the name suggests, you can take your food and drink into the theater with you. But don’t eat too much, because we have other options for you below. You’ll also want to take a look at the iconic blast furnaces that remain on the former Bethlehem Steel site. They are spectacular.
From there we suggest you try your luck at the Sands® Bethlehem. You’ll enjoy the fast‑paced excitement of table games, slots, a shopping mall and some of the best food around, including three Emeril Lagasse restaurants. Then you can work off that food dancing the night away in one of the resort’s lounges.
