Saucon Valley is a scenic and picturesque area with rolling hills and winding roads, located directly next to the Lehigh Valley. It is made up of several smaller towns and is included in both Lehigh and Northampton counties. Approximately 26,000 people live in Upper Saucon Township, Lower Saucon Township, Coopersburg, and Hellertown, combined. Native Americans first lived on the land and in the mid-1700’s, European settlers established the area as their new home.
Saucon Valley is approximately 60 miles North of Philadelphia, 75 miles west of NYC, 80 miles east of Harrisburg, and 85 miles north of the Jersey Shore. It’s located conveniently to PA Route 309, Interstate 78 and US Route 22, making it ideal for commuting.
The Saucon Valley School District takes pride in actively involving their community in students learning. The district was redesigned in 1999 to incorporate the elementary, middle, and high school under one complex, spreading out over 106 acres and interconnected by a glass bridge walkway. The schools are wired for modern technology and the design includes a freshwater stream, ball fields, playgrounds, stadium, and track facilities.
The Saucon Valley area offers a wide variety of both indoor and outdoor activities. Centrally located, The Promenade Shops are a staple for Saucon Valley living. These outdoor, lifestyle shops offer everything from a movie theater, a variety of restaurants both upscale and family friendly, well-known clothing stores, specialty upscale boutiques, supermarket and food shops, bookstores and novelties, and more.
