The town is growing, in both the direction of local strengthening, and the invasion of corporations and franchises.
Review Bethlehem
There is one stellar local brewery, and a few nice coffee shops, but for the most part, the area lacks culinary excellence.
Lots of places to support truly local goods, from a community owned Co-op to a Main Street loaded with local hotspots.
