Ideal weather, coupled with dynamic new attractions, and plenty of free music and great food made the perfect combination for "fest-goers" as musikfest attracted a near record number of visitors to Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley last summer. Estimated attendance for musikfest 2014, which took place August 1st-10, up to 1,150,000, up more than 15% than that of 2013. Patrons come to visit musikfest from all across the country. Its Bethlehem's biggest event of the year. Musikfest gives Bethlehem the opportunity for ten days to showcase our history, culture, restaurants, and retail establishments. I personally really enjoy the fest and find the wide range of food amazing.

The weather in Pennsylvania ranges widely over the 4 seasons. Summer can be brutally hot, causing major heat waves that last several days or weeks, the moth of July can be the worst.Spring rains a lot but the temperature is calming to many. Fall is nice in the beginning because its still warm out with just a light enough breeze for a jacket, however as the months venture in it can become cold and even start to snow as early as October. Pennsylvania has seen some pretty bad snow storms over the past 30 years. Winter can be brutal with snow storms and major ice build ups over major roads, making traveling for the holidays hard and depressing. Students such as myself dwell the winter weather because it makes it hard to get to classes if not cancelled. Depending on where you live in Pennsylvania certain city's streets don't get cleaned as well as others. Gloves, boots, coats, and scarves are essentials for the winter.
This is a pretty boring town. There is not as much crime as Wilkes Barre and I would consider it safe. You might get some nice neighbors or some bad ones. The housing is cheap but the taxes are pretty high. There are some nearby stores (Gerrity's) although the Walmart and Sam's Club are a bit farther than I wish they were.
