Middletown is a very friendly, homey town where everyone knows everyone else in this town. Everything is very close by with lots of parks and things to do.
The Lehigh Valley is a diverse and vibrant area of the northeast. It is close to numerous major cities such as Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore and on the flip side just as close to the mountains, rural areas and farm lands. The ocean and beaches are just as close and all of these things are in reasonable car drives. Bethlehem in particular, is a city steeped in history and tradition, and while built on the back of the once great Bethlehem Steel, the city has risen from the ashes of that failed industry and is experiencing a re-birth through the arts and music.
