Winter In Lehigh Valley

Your entire winter wishlist is here. A cozy fire casting shadows in an expansive lodge? Check. Families snowshoeing and cross-country skiing amongst the evergreens? Check. Date night options fit for any romantic? Check. Ice skate safely on rinks in Lehigh Valley. Check. You can even ski and snowboard at nearby Blue Mountain and Bear Creek Mountain Resort or meander the best walking trails in the Valley. Warm up and relax at a health and wellness spa.
Lehigh Valley’s cozy accommodations, winter events, restaurant weeks, winter getaways, and low-season crowds will brighten your spirits— even during the chilliest days of the year. Unwind at a local winery, distillery, or brewery. Taste and purchase varieties like Chambourcin, Chardonnay, and Vidal Blanc or sweeter blends like cotton candy-infused white wine or bubbly peach mist, all along the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. The unique Colony Meadery honey-based signature spirit pays tribute to Arnold Palmer.
