Today, Bethlehem is experiencing an economic and cultural renaissance promising a future as bright as the city’s past. With a vibrant, historic downtown and a rejuvenated south-side entertainment area the City of Bethlehem stands poised to be a leader and model for other cities throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond.
