Allentown, PA

The city that was the hiding place of the Liberty Bell during the Revolutionary War is enjoying a renaissance, thanks in part to significant downtown revitalization efforts, including construction in 2014 of the PPL Center, the home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms minor league hockey team.

Allentown offers a wealth of cultural attractions, including the renowned Allentown Art Museum, the Da Vinci Science Center and the America on Wheels Museum, which features galleries related to virtually every form of transportation, from cars to Segways.
