Bethlehem has a variety of attractions to feed your mind, body and soul.

Explore our sites where the old and the new combine to make a fun-filled adventure; where you can discover our past while enjoying current shopping, food and entertainment. Bike along the river in the shadow of the blast furnaces that “built America” or shop in the oldest continuous operating bookstore in the world. Eat in one of our fabulous restaurants or learn about our colonial past. Attend a performance by a nationally acclaimed artist or take a chance at a roulette table. There are so many places to visit that you cannot fit it all in, in one day.

SteelStacks

On the former industrial site of the home plant of Bethlehem Steel, with the now-dormant blast furnaces and ore crane framing the area, lies an entertainment mecca with a casino, shopping mall, restaurants, two event centers, outdoor stage, industrial museum, and a trestle that is a public walkway, museum and community recreation area.

Historic Moravian Landmark District

On the other side of the river, this area is filled with buildings (many still-used) and museums that harken back to the colonial era in America.

Sands Bethlehem

This full-service casino features more than 200 table games and 3000 slot machines. The Sands Bethlehem complex also includes a three-diamond hotel, an event center with national headliners, nine dining choices and an excellent outlet shopping mall.

Christkindlmarkt

This family-friendly, nationally acclaimed event that takes place in November and December features over 150 artisans and craft stands, food and retail vendors and demonstrations such as glass blowing and ice carving, with St. Nicholas and live music to complete this holiday happening.

“Vast sections of the world’s population are inspired by the same desires and live for common interests that bind them together far more than they separate them.”
