Allentown is a city located in Lehigh County in eastern Pennsylvania, USA. After Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Allentown is Pennsylvania's third most populous city. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 106,632. It is the county seat of Lehigh County.

Allentown is the largest of three adjacent cities that comprise an area of Pennsylvania known as the Lehigh Valley, with the cities of Bethlehem and Easton surrounding. Lodged between two of the country's largest cities, Allentown is 50 miles north of Philadelphia and 90 miles west of New York City.

Allentown was founded in 1762 by William Allen, who originally called it Northamptontown. In 1838, the town was named after him.

Allentown holds historical significance as the location where the Liberty Bell was hidden by the Continental Congress during a portion of the American Revolutionary War. As the British were attempting to seize Philadelphia in 1777, the Liberty Bell was moved north and hidden successfully by the colonies in the basement of a center city Allentown church.

Today, at Allentown's Old Zion Reformed Church, a shrine in the church's basement marks the exact spot where the Liberty Bell was hidden. It features a full-size official replica of the Liberty Bell flanked by the flags of the original thirteen colonies and is the only replica of its type.

Allentown is the home of Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, one of the world's most popular amusement parks, and Muhlenberg College. The city is served by Lehigh Valley International Airport.
