Step into History. No one does Christmas like Bethlehem, the “Christmas City.” From walking tours, to a live advent calendar, to a nighttime bus tour to visit the famous star atop South Mountain, Historic Bethlehem Musems & Sites has your holiday fun covered.
Curtains Up! Catch performances of the Nutcracker from the Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and the Repertory Dance Theatre, enjoy a dinner theatre at the Pines in Allentown, or laugh your socks off at the annual Christmas City Follies at Bethlehem’s Touchstone Theatre. For the little ones, don’t miss Pip the Mouse, a classic favorite at Allentown’s Liberty Bell Museum.
