  • The Steel Stacks is a great and very cool looking venue for any event! The facilities are always clean and the staff is always nice. Being able to take awesome pictures inside and out of the building is great. They always have something going on here too, whether it be a concert, viewing party, or a prom.. it's never a dull moment. The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because the food and other items are crazy expensive, but it might be overlooked considering how great everything else is.
  • An awesome place to explore and walk around. There are always events, so keep an eye on the website calendar for fun things going on. Cars and coffee is one such free event that is absolutely worth experiencing - probably on the bigger meetups within the region and great for all ages. Overall, the city did a great job turning decrepit steel mills into an awesome and worthwhile tourist destination. Great way to bring money back into the area!
  • I played bagpipes at a wedding in The Alcove behind the visitors center last week. What a beautiful place. Love the industrial feel and being right up so close to the blast furnaces. The reception was held inside and boy did they put out a nice spread. Just gorgeous
  • Wonderful community music center. The new high line is a great history is the steel stacks. We visited in the past and the little museum was nice but the high line is much more enjoyable. I would definitely bring my family back for another visit.
  • I have never had a bad or poor experience at the Steel Stacks. Step Outdoors Lehigh Valley was a fun and outdoor educational event for children. We also participated in the Autism Speaks 5k walk and it was put together perfectly. I will continue to go to events here. It is a family friendly environment. The walk of the Steel Stacks is amazing too! That's a must do walk through!
