Get into the Christmas spirit by visiting one of teh “Christmas Cities” in the United States.
Christkindlmarkt in Bethlehem, PA runs from November 22 – December 22, 2019 (dates will vary by year).
It represents one of the largest Christmas markets in Pennsylvania (and the country). It is worth a trip to this beautiful city.
Tip: buy tickets online. It is worth skipping the ticket line!
Parking can be a challenge, but there seemed to be multiple parking lots to use. We recommend trying to use the lot directly next to the market (but note that this will fill up quickly).
The market is primarily indoors. You can easily spend hours wandering the stalls. Perfect time to get some Christmas shopping in. You should definitely sample food as you go around.
After working up your appetite, head over to the food tent. You will likely be able to catch a performance or live music.
End the day in the courtyard, grab (another) cup of hot cocoa, or warmed beverage of choice. Make sure to head to the end of the courtyard and get a picture with the large tree and lighted reindeer.
This is an experience you don’t want to miss!
