Anyone who lives in the Lehigh Valley is bound to tell you one thing about this past winter—it was too long! Finally, sunshine is beginning to return to the area and the forecasters calling for the return of spring-like weather, so now is the time to put away those heavy winter coats and get out into the community to enjoy the warmth and time with family and friends.

As a historic city that has been around since 1741, Bethlehem has a lot to offer to visitors and the people that call the region home. Not only are there countless parks and outdoor venues in the local area where you can explore the best of nature, but there are also several exciting events coming up to let you make the most of the spring season!

Whether you are considering a move to the Bethlehem area, have lived here for generations, or would like to take a day trip to explore the best that the city has to offer, be sure to do the following in the coming weeks: 

  • Visit the Kemerer Museum—for Free!
    The Kemerer Museum is an exciting and historical landmark of Bethlehem that’s committed to giving back to the community, and there’s no better time to get involved with the museum’s activities than on their FREE Sundays! Every Sunday from 1-4pm, you can explore the museum with free admission, participate in crafts and calligraphy, and get a first-hand look at what life was like in the area back in the 1800s.
  • Volunteer for the Burnside Colonial Garden
    If you have a passion for history and gardening, then the Burnside Colonial Garden is the place to be. They are always looking for volunteers to adopt a plot within the garden to plant seeds, compost, and make the area a more beautiful place. Best of all—you don’t have to have any experience! Just grab some gloves and come out to enjoy the sunshine and beauty of nature!
  • Explore the Fine Art and Craft Show
    Every year, over 80 fine artists and crafters from within the region and around the country come together to host the Bethlehem Fine Art and Craft Show in the historic district of Bethlehem, PA. This year’s event takes place on May 12 and 13, and it also coincides with the Spring Vintage Market—making it the perfect weekend to grab a gift for Mother’s Day and learn more about the unique culture of the area.
  •  Shop and Stroll through the Arts District
    The first Friday of every month is dedicated to the arts and culture in Bethlehem’s Southside Shopping and Arts District. Here residents of the city and visitors from around the area can stroll through galleries, shops, and boutiques while they get to enjoy everything from live music to incredible food and wine samples.
