The Small-Town City
"Looks like a city, feels like a small town"
So this is where I was born and raised. I must admit, I never thought much of A-town while I lived there, but since I've been gone about 10 years, I miss it.
Allentown is the type of place that even after you've been away for decades, you'll still run into people you know at the grocery store. A feel of Pennsylvania Dutch matched with the contemporary.
An amusement park, the one-time home of the liberty bell, and close to the historical sites in Bethlehem and Easton, PA. Near New York and Philly if you want a city, but head the other direction if you seek a quiet farm life in Lancaster County.
Enjoy my little taste of Pennsylvania.
