  • Taste the spirited side of the Lehigh Valley. Given the radical beliefs, at the time, of the Moravians, it should come as no surprise that these German settlers were fond of a stiff drink. In fact, the Lehigh Valley's very first tavern, the Crown Inn in Bethlehem (founded in 1745), was so popular that they quickly a new tavern, the Sun Inn, only a few years later in 1758. Today, the Moravians' influence can still be seen (and tasted!) at one of the region's many distilleries, breweries, cideries, and wineries, which offer handcrafted, locally produced beverages. Make sure to sample some applejack, a favorite alcoholic drink during the American colonial era.

  • Eat like one of the Sayre family or Bethlehem's industrial tycoons during a meal at The Sayre Mansion. In the morning, this bed and breakfast cooks up classics like home-baked pastries, French toast, Belgian waffles, and specialty omelets. Guests should also save some room for Afternoon Tea. Offered every Thursday afternoon (for an additional cost), this grand tradition was a favorite way to pass the time at the great estates of the 19th century, like the Sayre family's. And for special occasions, consider booking a seat at The Founder's Table. Available daily for private dining, this elegant six-course feast immerses diners in the very spaces that once played host to two of Bethlehem's founding fathers, Robert Sayre and Asa Packer.

  • Raise a glass to the beer-drenched history of Bethlehem during a walking tour of the city's most historic pubs.
