Allentown, Pennsylvania is a picturesque place to live, but it’s also home to some of the most amazing things to do for the entire family to enjoy. The next time there’s a rainy day and you’re ready to cure your cabin fever, just keep these tips in mind for a good time – you’ll be happy that’s is raining by the time your day is done!


1.    Check out the America on Wheels Museum

If you’re really into cars and motorcycles – or anything with a motor and two wheels, for that matter – the American on Wheels Museum in Allentown is a place worth checking out. Three main galleries, several small exhibits and two floors make up the museum, which houses over 75 cars, bicycles, motorcycles and trucks. America on Wheels educates its visitors about the people who created these transportation devices, from the first carriage to the technologically advanced cars we’ll be driving in the future.


2.    Explore the Da Vinci Science Center

Being forced to stay in on a rainy day with a house full of kids is not always a welcomed task. Fortunately for Allentown residents, the Da Vinci Science Center is a nearby attraction that keeps kids – and their parents – extremely busy during stormy weather. The center has won national awards for its amazing ability to educate the public on all things science, bringing science to life for its guests since 1992. Between the unique exhibits, exciting programs and partnerships, the Da Vinci Science Center promotes science, engineering, technology and mathematics in a playful, informal way that truly speaks to children. There are always special events taking place, so be sure to check the center’s calendar that day to see what’s going on.


3.    Shop at the Lehigh Valley Mall

A regional mall that serves Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton, the Lehigh Valley Mall has got something to do for everyone. It’s especially perfect for those that want to use their rainy day as an excuse to go on a shopping spree, considering its large square footage, two levels and mass amount of stores, which total over 150. When you’re all done shopping around, you can choose lunch or dinner from a bunch of different restaurants, including Bonefish Grill, Ruby Tuesday’s and Cucina Italiana. There’s also an attached lifestyle center, making this mall a truly distinctive place.

A place where you can be fully entertained while enjoying a delicious meal, the theatre is a true gem of Allentown.
