Kudos to Bethlehem for making a fascinating place out of what could have become a giant pile of rusted steel. Take the tour and hear the story of steel.

The area is a great spot for concerts, most are outdoors in front of the blast furnaces. Bring lawn chairs.

This closed steel plant is rusted, decrepit and awe-inspiring. There are stairs and an elevator leading to a free walkway around the plant with plaques describing the operations. We were there on Labor Day weekend and a car show was going on. There is a visitor's center, a fast-food style restaurant, several stages, a playground, and a nearby museum of... More

Parked and went on a tour, walked in the sun for an hour. Tourguides passionate about sharing information and happy to answer questions. but quite confusing if you know little about the process. Not very clear to understand. No time to read signs. They leave you to walk out yourself. There's an exhibition too.

The Hoover-Mason Trestle which conveyed the steel through the smelting and shaping process has been turned into a fascinating pathway. The trestle bridges the commercial Sands Casino / Hotel / Mall complex and the creative Steelstacks / Artquest showplace. As long as you can climb the well designed flight of stairs to the walkway it is an easy hike. As... More

Amazing structures/machinery from the steel era of days gone by. Visited here & loved walking around & exploring before heading over to the Sands Casino. Walked back through after 11pm & felt safe doing so. Neat area for concerts, good eats & kids.

This was a must do if visiting this region. It doesn't take long and is free. It tells a good story of American history and an amazing example of revitalizing a former industrial site.

Came here for the Sangria Fest (great idea but the lines were too long). However my highlight was the entire venue. They have a nice walk with historical markers that take you right up against the old mill. There is an informative visitors center with clean bathrooms. A spacious cafe provides reasonably price drinks and light fare. The place really... More

It is a nice place for a concert. You are very close to the stage and they have a bar and limited restaurant. Great view of the steel mill stacks.
