Men at Play in Lehigh Valley: An Itinerary for a Weekend with the Guys

Just for the Guys

Maybe girls “just wanna have fun” but we all know guys need some male bonding time away too. Lehigh Valley PA is the perfect place to plan a getaway weekend with a few of your best buddies without breaking the bank.

If sports are your thing, why not catch a game at Coca-Cola Park, home of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. The park features great food, fun beverages, interesting promotions and special deals for groups. Plus, where else can you buy souvenir t-shirts to bring home that actually smell like bacon?

If the game is rained out have no fear. Head on over to Lehigh Valley Grand Prix, suit up and prove who’s the best indoor go-kart driver in the bunch. With speeds up to 45 mph on the 1/4 mile track, your adrenaline will be racing too.

If craft beers are what you guys have in common, we’ve got that covered. The Fegley family has been brewing beer at their Allentown Brew Works and Bethlehem Brew Works for over 17 years. The valley is also home to Weyerbacher Brewing Company so after your tour of that facility the guys can pick up hats and other Weyerbacher swag to go along with your bacon shirts.

Sands-Bridge-(3)A guy’s weekend away isn’t complete without a trip to Sands Bethlehem. They have over 3,000 slot machines to choose from and plenty of table games where you can try your luck. You can’t go hungry there either. Sands has over seven restaurants and bars to choose from, including three by famed chef, Emeril Lagasse.

Before you leave stop by The Outlets at Sands Bethlehem and pick up something special for your significant other at home. A nice “I missed you” present will go a long way when you are planning your next “men at play” getaway with the guys.
