It's in the middle of town, you can get bearings. There are a few craft, photos and jewelry items for sale some bearing the town name. They have "the map" available for the large view of the area. The individual stores in town still change. This is always a place for answers. Parking on the main street is still a... More

Stopped in this center near the Steel Stax for the first time to exchange some gift items purchased at the Steel Stax Gift Shop. The hostess/cashier was extremely helpful. Nice selection of Bethlehem Steel items for sale--clothing, books, ornaments, etc. Was very pleased to see the historical displays and watch the videos re Bethlehem Steel's rise and fall as well...

Very helpful people and a nice shop, too. They gave us great advice for special holiday events, and provide clean bathrooms for the general public.

I was walking the main street in Bethlehem and stopped in to use the restroom. It's a really cute place, lots of cute souvenirs. The girls working were really nice too.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Since it was our first time to Bethlehem, we got a map and brochures of the local sites. They gave us tips for what to see in just a few hours and we were pleased with their advice. Parking is an issue so we recommend the Walnut Street garage which is in the historic... More
