Useful Locations

 

Here are some local stores and business that may come in handy during your visit.(thanks to D. Lopresti for having compiled these)

Pharmacy

There is a CVS pharmacy nearby which is very good for all kinds of important things, including medical and health related items:

CVS/pharmacy
305 West 4th Street
Bethlehem, PA  18015

In addition CVS, the Lehigh University Bookstore (where the Starbucks is located) carries a number of convenience items.

Post Office

In case you need it, there is also a US Post Office very close by the hotel:

US Post Office
131 W 4th Street
Bethlehem, PA  18015

Banks

In terms of banks on the South Side of Bethlehem, there are several options, including a couple branches of Wells Fargo which have ATM's. There is one near the hotel:

Wells Fargo Bank
301 Broadway
Bethlehem, PA  18015

There is also a Wells Fargo bank (including an ATM) on the Lehigh campus, on the second floor of the University Center building.

There is also a Bank of America on Third Street:

Bank of America
29 East 3rd Street
Bethlehem, PA  18015

Liquor & Alcohol

The liquor laws in Pennsylvania are a bit strange. If you want to buy wine or hard liquor, then you must go to a state store.  Fortunately, there is one conveniently located on the South Side:

Wine & Spirit Shops
30 E 4th Street
Bethlehem, PA  18015

To buy beer, it is probably best to go to a local bar (pub).  Regular stores that sell beer will require you to buy an entire case (this is the result of a state law).
