Anyone who has been intrigued by "what lies behind the elegant Victorian facades of Allentown" should make arrangements to attend today's Tour of Homes and Taste of Allentown.
Themed this year as the Secrets of Allentown, the Allentown Association sponsored event offers an opportunity to enter the grandiose private homes, eccentric apartments and elaborate businesses of the historic area.
It is open to the public and will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today.
This year's tour features 14 unique properties, none of which have been previously opened to the public for past tours. Tickets to the event are necessary and are available for $12 in the LucasVarity headquarters at Delaware Avenue and North Street.
In combination with the Tour of Homes, the Allentown Association and the district's restaurants and cafes will offer the Taste of Allentown.
Allentown district maps and a list of participating restaurants are provided with tickets to the event.
