The area has excellent public school systems, is home to seven four-year colleges, and has strong ties to professional sports. The Poconos, which feature some of the East Coast’s best-known ski resorts, is approximately 30 miles north of the Lehigh Valley.  The Lehigh Valley is truly a wonderful family community.
