Entertainment & The Arts

Easton may not have many large venues, but the historic State Theater in downtown still draws some of the biggest names and has a more intimate feel than larger, more commercial concert halls.  There are many spots throughout town to catch a band or some live music, and Easton is home to several festivals throughout the year which are centered around the circle and riverside park area.

Restaurants & Bars

Downtown Easton is a hidden gem with many fine restaurants throughout - whether you are hungry for modern Mexican, Classic Italian, or Asian Fusion, you'll find a fabulous place to eat in Easton.  Easton is also home to several breweries.  Each neighborhood has it's own storied places and half of the fun is finding the local's favorite hole in the wall for the "best" cheesesteaks or hoagies around.  

Parks & Outdoors

Easton has many local parks and playgrounds, and each neighborhood will have a favorite spot to commune with nature.  Riverside Park along the banks of the Delaware is home to many of the summertime festivals and the tow path connects downtown to Hugh Moore Park and points beyond in one direction and can be followed south along the Delaware towards Bucks County in the other.  

Museums & Amusements

There are many things to do in Easton.  Perpahs the most famous of these is the Crayola Factory on the circle.  With it's always changing exhibits, this interactive museum is hours of family fun. Hugh Moore Park houses the National Canal Museum.  Here you can take a ride on a replica of an original canal boat pulled by two huge mules, or stroll the wooded paths between the canal and the Lehigh River.

Local Architecture

Downtown is a mix of new, modern buildings and stately early 20th century architecture.  The brownstones and brick townhomes have as much character inside as out and each side street holds secrets to be discovered.  The view changes to twins and rowhomes as one heads towards the West Ward and Wilson Borough.  College Hill houses many stately old mansions, especially in the areas surrounding Lafayette College.  Forks, Palmer and Williams Townships are fairly typical suburbs with modern housing developments  mixed in with large single family plots and working farms.

Shopping & Markets

Easton has a few shopping districts of note.  The border between Wilson Borough and Palmer Township along route 248 is lined for many miles with large shopping centers and malls with stores ranging from Home Depot to Wal-Mart or Target.  Forks has it's own shopping area which increases in size every year as the population of this township grows.  Downtown boasts the oldest year round farmer's market and many quaint local shops.  

Public Transportation

The Lehigh Valley International Airport provides direct flights to many Eastern US locations and connections to many, many more. It's convenient to travel anywhere from this local hub. There are no passenger trains in the Lehigh Valley, but there are public buses that service every area of the city and long distance buses can be picked up at one of several local terminals.
