Bethlehem has the charm and character of a university town. Maybe that's because the area is dense with schools and colleges. Bethlehem Unified is the sixth largest school district in the state. The township is also home to Moravian College, a private liberal arts college, and Lehigh University, ranked in the top tier among national research institutions by U.S. News & World Report. With so many schools, the community supports a robust public library and the charming Moravian Bookshop, reportedly the oldest operating bookstore in the nation and located on historic Main Street.
The beautiful Lehigh River flows through the center of Bethlehem, forming a natural divider between the north side with its galleries and historic shopping district and the newly urbanized south side. But no matter which side of town your apartment is in, there's tons to do. From boating and fishing on the Lehigh River to taking in historic museums to strolling through the town's many galleries.
