Destination guide

Allentown is a centuries-old community

Founded in the 1760s, Allentown played a key role in the history of Pennsylvania, and the very creation of the United States. The Liberty Bell itself was famously hidden here, to keep it from falling into the hands of the enemy, and you can visit the exact location yourself. With its rows of historic, Victorian properties, it’s a place with plenty of architectural charm, as well as a lively social scene. Allentown vacation rentals, which include spacious apartments fit for large families, will make you feel well at home, close to all the major attractions.

Things to do

A proud pilgrimage in Allentown

One of the most proudly patriotic attractions in the area is the Liberty Bell Museum. This has been created in the very church where the iconic bell was desperately hidden from the enemy forces during the American Revolutionary War. The museum tells the whole thrilling story, and also features a replica of the bell which can actually be rung. Culture-seekers can also head for the Allentown Art Museum, which features a wide array of American paintings and sculptures, along with an entire library designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Kids, meanwhile, get playful in the Da Vinci Science Center where they can meet marine animals and enter an exciting tunnel maze.


Out and about in Allentown

When you’re packing for your Allentown vacation rental, be sure to bring along a big appetite. There are some local, Pennsylvania treats that foodies will want to devour, from Allentown’s take on the classic, decadent cheesesteak, to lesser known eats like scrapple and Lebanon bologna. After you’ve chowed down, you can walk the calories off in Little Lehigh Park, with its meandering trails running through rolling grounds, and past a winding creek. Adventure seekers can also go tubing on the Lehigh River, while – come the evening – you can catch classical music, as well as jazz and folk, at the Miller Symphony Hall, set within a building dating back more than a century.


Spring and fall fun in Allentown

If you’re working out when to book that Allentown vacation rental for, it’s worth considering the weather. Summers can get pretty hot around here, so if you find that idea a bit uncomfortable, you might be better off coming in the spring and fall. Temperatures will be warm and pleasant, without being too prickly, and you’ll feel able to explore the area day and night. Just bring some extra layers if you’re intending to hit the town on late fall evenings.
