Bethlehem Makes Expedia’s List of Cities That Give Worst Case of FOMO
By Colin McEvoy on November 8, 2017
One of the Internet’s biggest travel websites has taken notice of Bethlehem, listing it among the cities that give you the worst case of “fear of missing out,” also known as FOMO.
Expedia.com listed Bethlehem along with Boston, San Diego, and Little Rock in its list of the “14 cities that give you the worst case of FOMO” because of the large number of events and attractions available.
“You’ve heard all about Christmas City and you’ve been planning to see the holiday cheer for yourself, but did you know Bethlehem has its fair share of summer shindigs, too?” Chloe Mulliner writes in the story. “The FOMO struggle is real in this PA town, where you’ll have to pick between warm outdoorsy events and the magical holiday festivities.”
The article cites Musikfest and Christkindlmarkt as among the city’s greatest attractions, as well as the annual Blueberry Festival, VegFest, and such holiday-themed events as the Live Advent Calendar, Christmas City Stroll, and a Bethlehem By Night bus tour.
Other cities to make the list include Bardstown, Ky.; Bloomington, Ind.; Breckenridge, Colo.; Huntington Beach, Calif.; Jackson Hole, Wy.; Madison, Wis.; Ocean City, Md.; Rockland, Me.; and Tucson, Ariz.
“A good FOMO flare up simply means there are so many things to do and places to see, that you’ll have a hard time choosing between all the epic events and attractions,” Mulliner said. “Too many options has never been a bad thing, especially when you’re exploring a new city, so take a peek at our list of FOMO-inducing destinations.”
This is not the first such accolade Bethlehem has received in the past year. Bethlehem was ranked by Money magazine as one of the “Best Places to retire,” and made Forbes magazine’s list of the “Best Places to Retire in 2017.”
