Bethlehem

3.6

Christmas City, USA

Listed among "Money" magazine's "Top 100 Places to Live," Bethlehem is dominated by shopping and the state's largest casino resort. Even with its modern appeal, the town has managed to maintain its historical small-town aesthetic. The downtown historical district has several streets lined with red-brick buildings that offer lodging, boutiques, spa services, and nightlife. The district is especially full every August, when the town hosts Musikfest, a free ten-day music festival. The name of the town makes it a Christmas hotspot; each year the city lights up a Christmas star above the town square. Bethlehem is in Pennsylvania (PA).
