On the site of a former Bethlehem Steel mill they built a park, casino, industry museum, and a walkway next to the former steel mill. The former mill is still here and built walkways where you can come right up to it. This is the story of America. Immigrants came here from Europe around 120 years ago. They worked 16 hour shifts 6 days a week in a hot steel mill to build America. This is a story that needs to be told, we need to preserve some of OUR country’s industrial past.

Loretta was our tour guide & she was a wealth of information—passionate about the subject, too, as her father worked at Bethlehem Steel for decades. She was one of the rare tour guides who imparts so much that she didn’t even breathe the whole time, I think—just dispensed info consistently. She went out of her way to infuse humor & to make the history easy to understand. Super-cool to have a Bethlehem native giving this tour!

We just hosted a wedding reception at the SteelStacks (ArtsQuest Musikfest Cafe) and it was *amazing!* It is the perfect venue for a unique event. The views are spectacular, the setting is unique and the event coordinators are beyond helpful. Susan and Adrienne made the planning process easy and enjoyable and the results were phenomenal. The guests are still raving (literally raving) about the experience.

I was very impressed with this brownfield redevelopment. The civic planners for Bethlehem (and corporate sponsors) have to be commended for the manner in which they have redeveloped the property. I am excited to see how the rest of the property is developed/reused.

It is hard to grasp the scale or the working conditions for the men working here without actually visiting up close. The trestle is a must-do even for families with small kids.

I wasn't there during a day when they had a tour- so I did the audio tour which is very well done especially in the way that they provide additional media to augment the stops if you want to delve further.

They have a scaffold trail that runs along the Stacks, so you can look inside the old steel plant. It is surreal and an easy walk. They have some great interpretive signs that explain what you are looking at, and there's are museums, theaters, and shops and restaurants. This place is one of the best urban retrofits I have ever seen. You can easily spend a day exploring all there is to see at the stacks.

Take an old steel plant and make it into an arts venue and you have the coolest, eclectic event and arts center that makes you proud to be a part of the Lehigh Valley. So much to do from movies, to concerts- both small and large, plays, food, drinks, learning, art, you name it. I just love everything about Artsquest.

We visited here for PeepsFest to ring in the new year on December 21, 2019. The event was great and fun for kids of ALL ages (we have teenagers, but my husband was in heaven!). The venue is spectacular though. I wish I could visit here frequently. Amazing thing to do with the old steel plant. Loved taking pictures - and the giant Peep with the steel stacks in the backdrop was a fun juxtaposition.

This area is great. Love to stroll around the factory skywalk, the museum, walk along the road to the other abandoned buildings. The area has so much history and well maintained for an enjoyable day.

We checked it out quickly because a storm was brewing. It was really cool to walk along the bridge and take pictures. The visitor center was next to it and was closed. So there wasn’t much happening on a Wednesday afternoon. The Arts center was closed too. Also, there were no bathrooms open.

I live near the area and love to walk around. This place is historical, you need to see it and come with family and friends. Stop by and enjoy the view from the top of the steel stacks a must see sight.
