About Allentown, PA

Today Allentown is the largest city in the Lehigh Valley region with a population of over 100,000 people. Despite its industrial past, the city’s economic focus has moved away from heavy manufacturing and has expanded to include service-based industries, a little high-tech industry, and medicine, with its biggest employer being the Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network. Allentown boasts an exceptional public school system, a selection of private schools, and two four-year liberal arts colleges—Cedar Crest College and Muhlenberg College—both of which have appeared high on rankings published by U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review. Aside from the excitement found in the nearby cities of Philadelphia and New York, Allentown offers its own list of cultural attractions and recreation, from museums and theater to baseball games. History buffs will love touring Allentown’s treasured past at landmarks such as the Allentown Cemetery Park (est. 1765), Bogert’s Covered Bridge, the Buchman House, the Butz-Groff House, the Old Zion Reformed Church and Liberty Bell Shrine Museum, and Trout Hall—the oldest house in Allentown, built by the son of William Allen in 1770. For a night of theater or music, Allentown has two premier performing arts venues—19th Street Theatre, home of Civic Theatre of Allentown, and the Allentown Symphony Hall, which is home to the Allentown Symphony Orchestra and other local music performances. And when the weather is too good to stay indoors, Allentown offers several parks and gardens, as well as the William F. Curtis Arboretum and the Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. Also, Allentown is home to professional sports teams the Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball, Philadelphia Force softball, and Pennsylvania Stoners Soccer. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are affiliated with the Philadelphia Phillies, and play their home games at Allentown’s brand new $48.4 million Coca-Cola Park.
