We are moving back to PA after living in Asheville NC for 5 years. I will be working at lehigh valley hospital and want to live somewhere near it. I have been away from the valley for a while and can't figure out where we should settle. Want a good school district, a downtown area, culture...where should we live?
I'm in the Poconos and I don't venture out that way too often. But from what I've seen/heard it seems like either Bethlehem or Whitehall might fit the bill? Quakertown is lovely too, dunno if that's too far for you.
Downtown Bethlehem is best for you. Very walkable, lots of restaurants, shopping, etc. Still need a car for groceries, basics. Emmaus is nice as well and with more of a family feel to it. Also a good school district.
