Hotel Bethlehem offers Room with a Boo | Lehigh Valley Regional News

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – On the ninth floor in Hotel Bethlehem at the end of the hall is room 932.

In the month of October, 932 is known as the Room with a Boo.

“The Room with a Boo is still a bit of a mystery to us. There’s no back story. We haven’t been able to figure out who it is,” said Kelly Ronalds, director of room sales and guest experience at the hotel.

The suite is available seven days a week, but every Thursday through Sunday the room gets spooktacular.

“It includes dinner for two in the Tap Room, this beautiful suite the Room with a Boo, it includes a bottle of wine, and a private tour with me on all the private behind-the-scenes places you can go that normally the public doesn’t get to go,” Ronalds said.

That private tour includes the boiler room where known friendly spirit Francis “Daddy” Thomas has been known to roam. Some say the friendly spirit has peeked over the shoulder of those looking at gauges and other things.

As for the top floor of the hotel, guests have been reporting sightings.

“She heard a knock at the door in the middle of the night and she kind of sleepily went to the door and as she went around the corner to open the door and look through the peep hole a black figure went into the guest bath,” Ronalds said.

So far ghost hunters, and guests from as far as Nebraska, haven’t been able to solve the mystery of 932. You have a chance for the rest of the month, but the hotel says not every guest is so lucky.

“Even if you book the Room with a Boo there’s no boo guarantee,” Ronalds said. “It’s a lot of fun, we’re having a good time, a spooktacular time here at the Hotel Bethlehem.”

You can find out more about Room with a Boo and other spooky events on the Hotel Bethlehem website.

Allentown gets grant to help boost outdoor recreation | Lehigh Valley Regional News

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – Cindy Adams Dunn, the Secretary for Pennsylvania’s District of Conservation and Natural Resources, was in Allentown on a day she handed out 31 state grants totaling $7 million. All are aimed at providing more trails throughout the state, and nearly 40 new miles will be added with the funds.

“It is phenomenal. We haven’t constructed a trail in a number of years,” said Allentown Director of Parks and Recreation Karen El-Chaar.

She says that will change as the city received a $500,000 grant to complete 1.8 miles of the Jordan Creek Greenway.

It “provides pedestrians and bicyclists the opportunity to follow the trail and take you into Whitehall,” she described.

The trail, which also runs on the road, will start at the 200 block of North Turner. It will go through Jordan Park, and onto MacArthur Road, getting users closer to Jordan Parkway. This comes as the city is looking to raise $5.5 million for Auburn Cross Trails located at 4th and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The 22 acres would act as a trail link through the city.

“This Jordan Park Greenway is emblematic of the trail system here in Pa. and how it connects communities,” Dunn said.

Dunn says the goal is to have all Pennsylvanians within a 10-minute car ride to a trail.

The D&L Trail also got a $500,000 grant to close a gap in Northampton County, helping to connect its more than 140-mile trail through the state.

It’s all a needed outlet. Dunn says state park use in September had an increase of a million people compared to last year. This follows the trend of people needing the outdoors during the pandemic.

“This has shown us how essential spending time outdoors and walking is for people, especially under stress,” she said.

Allentown hopes to start the trail construction by late summer and be finished in 2022. The ultimate goal is to connect center city with the Trexler Nature Preserve.
