Must-See in Lehigh Valley

Must-See in Lehigh Valley

With the summer in full swing, you’re probably itching to get out and about to enjoy the scenery in Lehigh Valley. Especially if you’re living in a community like Brookshire or Whispering Pines, right in the Lehigh Valley itself, you want to know where to go and where the fun attractions are. Here’s a list of some must-see and must-do adventures while living in Lehigh Valley this summer.

Jacobsburg State Park

Perched on the north edge of the Lehigh Valley, Jacobsburg State Park is a beautiful area in which to explore and learn. You can participate in one of the many environmental education programs for preschoolers right on up to high schoolers. Or, take part in an environmental problem-solving program, historical program, teacher workshop or public interpretive program. Of course, you can simply pick a trail and explore on your own. It is located on the site where the Henry Rifle was made, with plenty of scenic hikes and multi-use trails.

Coca-Cola Park

There’s nothing better than taking in a ball game in the summer. In Allentown, you’ll find Coca-Cola Park, an 8,000-seat stadium home to the minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies. Enjoy an affordable day or night out with the family as you cheer for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom

Take a break from the summer heat and cool off at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. This is an amusement park and water park in one. For one ticket price, you get access to 100 rides, shows and attractions at one of the country’s best water parks. It also happens to be home to the largest collection of kids’ rides in Planet Snoopy, with Dorney Park being one of the most visited amusement parks in the country thanks in large part to its eight roller coasters.

Covered Bridge Tours

Lehigh Valley boasts seven of the 200 covered bridges in all of Pennsylvania. Take a tour of these beautiful bridges, five of which are open to traffic. The Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge Tour is about 50 miles long, so plan to spend the day. You’ll get a chance to take photos, eat a picnic lunch, take a hike, or rest by the babbling brooks. Some of the bridges you’ll encounter include:

  • Bogert’s Bridge in Allentown

Best Activities to Beat the Heat

Summer in the city - little boy playing with fountain

With summer in full swing, here are some of the best activities in the area to keep you busy while keeping you cool.


If you live in our beautiful Siena Place, you’re close by many of Philadelphia’s summer attractions. Between now and October 1, be sure to visit Spruce Street Harbor Park, returning for its fourth season. This temporary park has colorful hammocks you can relax on in the warm weather, sample delicious local fare in its floating restaurant, drink cold drafts from the beer garden, and participate in plenty of team games such as ping pong and shuffleboard. It’s located at Spruce Street and S. Columbus Blvd in Philly.

Want to catch a movie under the stars? Head to Penn’s Landing every Thursday night in July and August for a public outdoor showing of a different movie on the big screen. Just bring your own blanket or a lawn chair to enjoy the latest movie while perched on the scenic banks of the Delaware River.

Lehigh Valley

If you call Whispering Pines in Coopersburg, Lehigh County home, take in a ball game in nearby Allentown at Coco-Cola Park. This 8,000-seat stadium is a cheap night out as you cheer for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Also in Allentown is Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, where you pay one low price and get to enjoy both parks. With more than 100 rides, shows and attractions, you can spend a whole day and night here with the family or grandkids. Ranked one of the country’s best water parks, and home to the largest collection of kids’ rides in Planet Snoopy, Dorney Park happens to be one of the most visited amusement parks in the country. Which one of the eight roller coasters will be your favorite?

Bucks County

Do you live in Renaissance at Morgan Creek? If so, and you have grandkids who like to come visit on the weekend, a visit to Kids Castle in Central Park in Doylestown is a must. This impressive play area includes an eight-story wooden playground structure created in 1997. There are designated areas for kids ages two to five, and other areas for kids five to 12 years old. You’ll find this iconic park at 425 Wells Road. On a rainy day, head to the Bucks County Children’s Museum at 500 Union Square in New Hope. Enjoy a fun, educational, and hands-on environment for children and parents that celebrates Bucks County’s charm, history and character.

Making a Move to a New Single-Family Home: Tips for Getting Packed and Staying Organized


If a move to a new home is in your near future, the key to a smooth transition is to be prepared. Not only do you need to organize and pack your existing house, you have to worry about making sure your new luxury single-family Brookshire house is ready for your arrival.

First step? Start packing days or weeks ahead of your departure date, advises USA Today. Not only does this give you an inventory of what you have, you will have a better idea of what you will need to buy, such as boxes, bins, packing tape and bubble wrap. Here are some tips to keep in mind when packing and organizing:

Pick up a bunch of boxes: Head to the grocery store, ask friends or purchase them at a supply store. However you choose to obtain them, get a lot of them. As you assess each room for packing, consider what can be put into a box: clothing, shoes, trinkets, towels. If it can be put inside a box, do it. That’s because cardboard boxes are versatile, with the ability to open and close them easily, seal, label and transport.

Label neatly: Don’t rush this part. Your writing should be clear, legible and specific. Using a permanent marker, list the general contents of the box and where it should go once at the new place. For example, “boys pajamas, second bedroom down hall on right,” or “office supplies, first door on left.” Being specific means your movers don’t have to waste time asking you where everything goes. Color coding your boxes also works well.

Protect your stuff: To protect breakables like collectibles, electronics, computers, TVs, glass, and lamps/shades, securely place them in their appropriate boxes, add bubble wrap and packing peanuts, and seal everything up with packing tape.

Pack smart: Utilize all space you have to make the move as compact as possible. Use laundry bins for clothing, shoe boxes for your shoes, jewelry, or other small items, and pack each box wisely. Use the maximum space available; don’t just throw a few things in and seal it up. Use blankets, clothing and towels as buffers for breakables. Keep like items together for easy unpacking, such as all toiletries together. Once you get to your destination at Whispering Pines, you can unpack all like items in one spot for minimal back-and-forth.

If you’d like to know more about our single-family, mansion-style homes with big lots and big value, give Judd Builders a call. We offer a variety of communities for you to choose from, such as Meadowview Farms, Renaissance at Morgan Creek, and Poet’s Walk.
