Taste the season
Warm up from the inside out with a culinary journey through the Lehigh Valley's winter delights. Start your day with a steaming cup of cocoa at one of the region's charming coffee shops, such as La Vida Café or Bitty & Beau's Coffee. Indulge in the comforting flavors of seasonal soups and stews at local eateries like Dunderbak's Market Cafe or Fegley's Brew Works. Don't forget to treat yourself to a classic Pennsylvania Dutch favorite—scrapple—at the historic Allentown Farmers Market, where you can embrace the winter season with every delicious bite.
For those who crave outdoor excitement, the Lehigh Valley offers many activities to satisfy your needs. Lace up your hiking boots and explore the snowy trails at Trexler Nature Preserve or Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center. If you prefer a faster pace, hit the slopes just a short drive away at Blue Mountain Resort, where the thrill of downhill skiing and snowboarding awaits—or hike through the Blue Mountain Loop trail, which is 5.5 miles and takes you through a section of the stunning Appalachian Trail. Experience the joy of winter tubing at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, a perfect activity for families and friends alike. The Lehigh Valley's outdoor wonders provide the ideal backdrop for making winter memories that will last a lifetime.
