PPL center is a great place to watch the Lehigh Valley phantoms play hockey. There's not a bed seat in the house. The food is really good. Lots of entertainment going on throughout the night

My college had graduation here. People was easily visible. TVs everywhere for close ups. Sound was on point. Tim Horton's inside. You don't have to interrupt everything to get out of your seat. Lots of parking.

Saw Elton John's farewell tour here. The arena is a great size for a show with most any seat being good. Lots of food and beer vendors and plenty of parking in the area.

Nice arena we were in 106 row 8. Good seats we parked in old Bonton garage close to arena and ate at chicks and Pete. But the whole arena has lost td if food and drinks. Doors open at 630 for 8 pm show.

This is right downtown, so you will be paying to park. You can buy tickets for the attached parking lot and there are others with a short walk. There are two restaurants in the arena, both were crowded and we didn't get in. Nice place...More
