By plane[edit]

The primary and most convenient point of airline entry to Whitehall and Lehigh Valley is Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE IATA). Various airlines operate out of this airport. Philadelphia International Airport (PHL IATA) is a major international airport that is about 70 miles away. Since it is a hub for several national airlines, it is easy to obtain non-stop flights to Philadelphia International compared to ABE and usually cheaper.

Get around[edit]

Whitehall is not a walking town.

If you don't have a car of your own, the easiest way to get around is by LANTA (Lehigh And Northampton Transportation Authority) Buses.

If you're traveling to more rural areas of Lehigh Valley, a car is the only option and can be rented through LVIA.


There's the Ironton Rail Trail for hiking, biking, jogging. Connected to the Ironton Rail Trail is the Whitehall Parkway, over 100 acres to fish, hike, watch birds and even see some historical buildings.[1] [dead link]

Anchored by JCPenney, Macy's and Boscov's and includes over 140 stores. Indoor and outdoor shopping. Outdoor stores include Coach, Barnes & Noble, and Apple Store

While the Lehigh Valley Mall is the main mall in Whitehall, next door is the Whitehall Mall, which is anchored by a Sears and Kohls. There's also a Bed, Bath & Beyond, Michael's Arts & Crafts and a few others in a small strip just outside the Whitehall Mall.

Moving north on MacArthur Road, you'll find another shopping center on the left side, Whitehall Square, which has a Redner's Supermarket, Petsmart, Staples and some more clothing and furniture stores.

Continuing north, on the right will be a shopping center anchored by a Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, and Dick's Sporting Goods. On the left will be MacArthur Towne Centre with a Kmart and Lowe's. Further up north, there is a Weis Markets, which is not in a shopping center.

Aside from the store mentioned, there are small shops of all shapes and sizes selling everything from mattresses to pet supplies to cars up and down MacArthur Road. The best way to see what's there is to literally drive the main drag.


Due to the abundance of shopping, restaurants line the main drag of Whitehall, MacArthur Road, and shopping centers. Dining options include:

  • Fast food chains including Burger King, KFC, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Chuck E. Cheese's, Chick-fil-A, McDonald's, and the only White Castle location in Pennsylvania
  • Other national chain restaurants including Perkins, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chili's, Friendly's, Panera Bread, Longhorn Steakhouse, Old Country Buffet
