Allentown offers all of the amenities you want from a city without having to live in an extremely large city such as Philadelphia or New York City. Located in the Lehigh Valley, this city has a large population but in a small area. Allentown isn't only center city, it has many nice suburban areas surrounding it. This is a place for people of all ages to live in and enjoy!
Allentown is diverse! The food, the people, languages, etc. There are beautiful parks--great for runners. In fact, there is a half marathon through the parks each year. Muhlenberg College and Cedar Crest College are in the area.
Allentown is an old city and has been under reconstruction. When I first moved her, I enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and friendly environment. There wasn't much to do because all of the main attractions were far outside of Allentown. Now, a lot of new stores and restaurants have opened up making Allentown a much more fun place to be. Also, the PPL center has just been built and host many events from Disney performances, concerts, hockey games, to many more other events. PPL appeals to many different communities in Allentown and has made it a better place to be.
