Christmas is a magical time with lights illuminating the streets and holiday cheer an infectious feeling. But one town takes that to the next level.

The little town of Bethlehem—Pennsylvania, that is—takes its name seriously, enjoying a unique chance to ring in the holiday season. And between the traditional Christmas market and the 81-foot-tall steel star that sits above it all, the people of this small Pennsylvania city don’t leave any yuletide stone unturned.

“Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is quintessential holiday cheer,” Alicia Quinn, the vice president of marketing and strategic alliances for Discover Lehigh Valley, told Travel + Leisure. “Simply stroll the twinkling lights on Main Street, tour the historic buildings decorated with candles and shop endless handmade collectables to capture a traditional holiday memory.”
