Kulp speaks to many candidates who want to return home or be closer to family in the Northeast, but she is quick to tell candidates from all backgrounds that the Lehigh Valley is a great place to live and work. "You can have a great quality of life, from the cost of living to good schools," says Kulp, also noting the abundance of recreational opportunities, cultural activities, concerts and more. Residents of Lehigh Valley often find that everything they need is at their fingertips. The area has everything from top-rated colleges and universities to minor league sports teams. "Lehigh Valley is one of the fastest growing regions of the state, with Allentown representi ng the state's th i rd la rgest metropolitan area," says Kaitie Burger, social media and communications manager for Discover Lehigh Valley. Across the region, says Burger, "there's a fantastic mixture of small-town feel partnered with large-scale events." Musikfest (the nation's largest free, non-gated music festival), PA Bacon Fest (featuring hundreds of bacon-centric food and drink items), and horse-drawn carriage rides along streets lined with lights and holiday markets are just a few favorites of locals and visitors alike. For the tennis-inclined, options abound. W i n n i ng Touch Ten n is offers socia l, instructional and competitive opportunities to all levels, and the Oakmont Tennis Club was voted one of the 12 best places to play on red clay by Tennis Destinations. "The Lehigh Valley truly offers something for everyone," says Kulp. And as one of the top five regions in the northeast for development, Lehigh Valley's renaissance continues on. "It was a great place to grow up, and it's been an even better place to raise my kids," says Friel. "There's everything we could have ever imagined here, and the area continues to grow. Over the last few years, it's been really fun to be part of a really dynamic community. I think it continues to get better and better." Win!
