My husband's family lives in the Allentown area. We are moving in about 1-2 years to PA from Southern California. We are originally from NJ and NY, but we've been in So. Calif. for over 25 years. Which areas near Allentown are nice? We'd like to get a home on about 1/2 to 1 acre of land, and don't want to be more than 30 minutes from Allentown. Thanks for any info you can give us.

We live in Emmaus, PA and enjoy the area immensly. Emmaus borders one side (a nicer side) of Allentown so you'd be close to family. It has a small town feel with excellent schools (East Penn School District). My husband's parents moved here from Long Beach, CA about 30 years ago and are so happy they made the move. There are lots of parks in the area, restaurants are close by and the Lehigh Valley Mall is about 20 min away (but there are lots of shopping centers all over). Part of Upper Milford Twp is within the EP School District, but UMT taxes are lower than in the borough of Emmaus. There are lots of new houses being built all over the LV. You can google "lehigh valley real estate" to get some idea of the area. Interstate 78 is close by which allows easy access into NYC and NJ. The PA turnpike is also pretty close so you can get to Philly in a little over an hour. Let me know if you have questions I can answer about the area.

Hi GreysMom,

Thanks so much for the information. I just posted again because no one had answered me, but that was before I saw your answer. I appreciate the info and I'll let you know if I have any further questions. Thanks much.
