Paralleling Broadway in the Historic District, Race Street is less than a quarter mile long. The iconic structures on this narrow street is known as "Packer Row" or "Stone Row". These sixteen 3-story homes with stone facades were built in the mid 1800's for the engineers and foreman of the Lehigh Valley Railroad by founder Asa Packer.
Within the original 16 homes are shops like Runasimi, Everything Nice, Stitch Craft Magic, and The Country Cottage. A restaurant, Stone Row Pub & Eatery is among the these as well. A few steps away from Stone Row is another shop, Jingle Bells Christmas Shoppe where you can stay in the Christmas spirit year-round.
But Stone Row isn't the only reason to visit this gem of a street. Stay a night or two or more at the romantic Times House Bed & Breakfast. Or perhaps a short term rental like Race Street Rentals is more your style. If you're looking for a fine dining experience, don't miss the eclectic Moya. But be sure to make reservations in advance!
One of the most iconic and historic structures in town is also on this street. Completed in 1869, St. Marks Church features an Otis elevator, English mahogany, and windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Tours are offered seasonally.
The next time you're in town, take a leisurely stroll on Race Street. You won't be disappointed!
