Known as the Christmas City, this Lehigh Valley city was originally settled by the Moravians, the oldest Protestant denomination in the world. The city got its name on Christmas Eve in 1741, when Count Zinzendorf of Saxony visited a two-room log house that housed both people and animals. Today, a huge electrical star shines nightly from the peak of South Mountain. Bethlehem's recent history has been inextricably linked with that of the Bethlehem Steel Company and the Wind Creek Bethlehem (formerly Sands Bethlehm). Wind Creek Bethlehem is the largest full-service hotel in the Lehigh Valley. The hotel features 9 dining options including 3 signature restaurants by world renowned chef Emeril Lagasse and the Steelwors Buffet & Grill. And within the last year the Outlets at Bethlehem have opened, with a number of specialty stores! Come discover the best of traditional and modern Bethlehem, PA “Christmas City”!
