Realtor® Frank Renaldi, a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors® who’s lived in the Nazareth area since 1989, says, “The best part of the Nazareth region is the combination of a quaint historic borough with loads of small business and the rural life filled with hiking trails, creeks for great fishing and an equestrian destination. All of these benefits of small-town living are paired with the convenience of shopping centers just outside of town and two major highway arteries in Rt. 33 and Rt. 22. This allows the enjoyment of peace and quiet while only being 15 minutes away from downtown Easton and the Bethlehem exit of Rt. 33.”
