Venture Off Campus
Lehigh is located in Bethlehem, Pa., within the Lehigh Valley, which is the 3rd largest metropolitan area in Pennsylvania. Settled by Moravians in 1741, Bethlehem is rich in history. Today, you’ll find plenty to explore from “restaurant row” to Musikfest, the nation’s largest non-gated free music festival.
Located on property that was once the historic Bethlehem Steel plant, SteelStacks’ ten-acre campus serves as a community gathering place that each year offers hundreds of concerts, films, festivals and community celebrations.
Lehigh’s home in the SouthSide Arts District offers an eclectic blend of shops, services, restaurants and cafes. Take a walk on the South Bethlehem Greenway, enjoy a delicious lunch or from-scratch dessert or visit the local library.
Located just across the Lehigh River, historic downtown Main Street offers dining, shopping and various festivals throughout the year.
Greater Lehigh Valley
Local attractions include The Promenade Shops, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (the Philadelphia Phillies’ AAA team), the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (the Philadelphia Flyers’ AHL affiliate team), Martin Guitar, the Crayola Factory and more.
