Right here in downtown Allentown you’ll find the commercial and cultural heart of the Lehigh Valley.
Our unique ethnic restaurants, our historical arts district, our businesses – and our people – make this a vibrant center of activity. Here, visitors can discover a wide array of taste, culture, entertainment and history. The Downtown Allentown Business Alliance consists of the area from 5th Street to 12th Street, and from Walnut to Linden Streets, and is supported by adjoining city neighborhoods and the riverfront.
Eat your way through the Hamilton District and experience the tastes of the Bay Leaf, Queen City BBQ, the Hamilton Kitchen, the Dime, Allentown Brew Works - and so many more! Test your art abilities at a class at the Baum School; take in a show at Allentown Symphony Hall; enjoy the exhibits at the Allentown Art Museum; or take a walk through the Arts Park!
Downtown Allentown is also home to many treasures including the PPL Center and Zion's Reformed United Church of Christ — the "Liberty Bell" church — which hid the Liberty Bell from the British in 1777. That's just one of the many stories downtown Allentown has to tell.
Come experience the Summer in the City Music series on the PPL Plaza; the annual Blues, Brews and Barbecue; the Allentown Beer Fest; the Tree Lighting Ceremony; New Year's Eve Celebration; First Mondays; Downtown Restaurant Weeks and so much more!
Come experience the Hamilton District – and find your own story to tell!
