Hotels, Dining, and Shopping
Pennsylvania’s third-largest metropolitan area, with nearly 1 million residents, the Lehigh Valley is home to six independent colleges and universities, an outstanding summer music festival, many museums, superb dining, great concerts and theaters, and plentiful outdoor activities from river sports to hiking in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains.
This list of the city and region’s hotels, shops, and restaurants is fairly comprehensive. All are conveniently located within a half hour’s driving distance of Lafayette. Inclusion does not necessarily represent endorsement by the College.
The Lehigh Valley is represented by two area codes—484 and 610. Unless otherwise noted, the area code is 610.
