Main Street, Lehigh Valley

Lehigh Valley is home to a great variety of Main Streets from Bethlehem’s iconic Christmas feel to Easton’s new restaurant row to Emmaus’ quaint hometown Americana atmosphere.

We recently asked some of our Facebook fans to tell us what their favorite Main Street areas were in Lehigh Valley and why. We offered up some Lehigh Valley Zoo tickets to random commenters! Here are some of the answers:

Summer's Not Over

It may appear to most, that summer is over. There are no more Friday nights under the lights at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center, there will be no more baseball at Coca-Cola Park, school has started, Musikfest and the Great Allentown Fair are in the rear view mirror and the weather for the week is rather wet.

Don’t fret, Lehigh Valley. There is still a little summer left to salvage. Summer’s official end is September 21st and I now submit to you the top 5 things to do in the waning days of summer.

the Farmhouse

There are so many great restaurants in Lehigh Valley that it is difficult to discover them all. That is why the Dream Come True 2012 Restaurant of the Month Calendar has been so helpful in introducing me to some unique dining options. The calendar includes great restaurants like Edge, Cosmopolitan and Shula’s Steak House. I was really excited to visit June’s featured restaurant; the Farmhouse in Emmaus.

Since the Farmhouse specializes in farm-to-table cuisine, I looked into their menu and beer list well before my reservation. With over two pages of beers, I couldn’t wait to see which beer would complement my dinner.

1999 Anchor Steam

I’ve been meaning to visit the Farmhouse for quite some time, pretty much since I started working at Discover Lehigh Valley. Since the Farmhouse recently made the 100 Best Beer Bars in America list, it was high time I go.

Out of curiosity, I scoped out the beer list for the highest priced bottle they had. It was a 4L bottle of Dock Street, which would set someone back a cool $500. Mind you, this is a bottle of beer.

Bowling

The forecast was not pleasant for Lehigh Valley last night, with thunderstorms and tornado warnings flashing on tv screens…but we still wanted to do something fun. So why not bowling? Why not.

So down to the Emmaus Bowling Center we went, not knowing what would happen. I mean, the last time we went bowling was in our living room, or at least someone’s living room on the Wii.

“Remember you can’t eat meat on Friday.”  Growing up these words were often overheard throughout my house during Lent. Being a native of the Scranton area (Blakely exactly), I had the privilege of some of the greatest pizza in the world. For anyone who disagrees, next time in the Scranton, PA area take a trip down Main St. in Old Forge and grab yourself a tray (yes, “Scrantonites” call it a tray). Let me know what you think.

A Lehigh Valley resident for the past 15 years, I long for the pizza from the Northeast. I’ve tried a bunch of pizza shops over the years.

Within each of you is a power, a Cosmic Force, everything bears a relationship to every other thing and to the Infinite Spirit. We are all part of the one great Universal Whole.

Wow, I sound like Shirley Maclaine! Ok, let me begin … last year we attended the SnowBlast Winter Festival in Emmaus, we had a great time and we purchased a couple of raffle tickets. My husband picked the numbers based on his favorite football team, and the last numbers were jersey numbers of two of his favorite players.
