  • Elevated walkway among the stacks! Great photo opt. Great thing is that it is free. Be sure and see 20 min film in the information center. The film explains the history of the steel mill.  more »

  • We happened to drive by the Sands casino nearby and stopped to check this out. It was amazing here, an outdoor exhibition with so much local history. My kids enjoyed walking through and the playground...  more »

  • I love this place! (and Bethlehem, PA in general) I have family that lives in the area, but I always find a reason to visit the SteelStacks. This year I decided to walk along the top and look more closely into the history side of the stacks. I think it's a pretty awesome site to see and a great way to look back at US History. It's so clean and at night, the lights are a perfect touch! Add in the fun things they have going on and you have a great venue! Can't wait to go back...
  • Cool public space. The area contains several music and art venues and is integrated well into the old iron mill site. The elevated walkway is a nice addition. It provides a close look at the mill and details the mills history. There are some great views up there as well.
  • What an awe inspiring place to visit. The pictures can not convey the incredible size of the location. A great place to come for a walk and some incredible history. Do your self a huge favor and do a little research on this location before you visit. It will add so much depth to your visit. Make sure you visit the plaques at the base of the flaming arch. This steel mill provided the materials for many of the major locations that we hold so close to us in the good ole USA.
  • An awesome place to visit! Very interesting as it seems like a place that would appear on Ghost Hunters. The lighting of the Steel Stacks is pretty amazing at night. We were also there for Oktoberfest, which was a fun time. Great facilities, even have a movie theater and playground. Would definitely go again, especially in the day time when we could see more of the inside of the Steel Stack. Makes for very cool pictures!
  • This is a great way to take a problem in a city and make it into a solution. I really like that they have turned this old industial zone into a great center for arts, music and events. Lots to do here throughout the year, and very well priced, many times free.
