There were just 3-4 speciality shops. We didn't even park. Many vacant stores. There are some restaurants. This cannot be considered a shopping area. Go to the Sands or the Lehigh Mall.

Great little shops and interesting galleries. Food isn't a problem as there are several types of food to select from on this street; Indian, Italian, American, Steak, Spanish, and more. Don't forget to stop at the visitors center.

We visited in the fall, near Halloween. It was so charming and so much fun. The historic sites were amazing and the shops were great!

I spent several hours exploring the shops while visiting Bethlehem recently. I really enjoyed the unique shops, friendly shop keepers and unique items available. From wines to books, jewelry to running shoes, this little town is packed with interest, charm and history.

Christkindlmarkt and Christmas City Village start on Friday November 17th, so all the decorations of Main street should be up by then.
