Easton

 

Welcome to Easton

Perched along the serene banks of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers, Easton is a charming waterfront town with a rich history and an affinity for glittering culinary experiences. Easton joins the areas of Bangor, Slate Belt, and Nazareth to comprise Northern Lehigh Valley, a picturesque region bordering New Jersey.

Between sweeping views of the majestic Blue Mountains and the tranquil waters of the converging rivers, Easton sports stunning scenery and a delightful sense of calm. Clocking in at less than two hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, Easton offers the best of both worlds: residents enjoy easy access to vibrant city life while also relishing a nightly homecoming to this picturesque haven. Like the town itself, Easton real estate is a seamless blend of charming history and modern style, with homes ranging from impeccably restored Colonial farmhouses to new construction gems sporting ample acreage.

Local Lifestyle

Easton’s Lehigh River provides a natural border through the town. On one side sits the South Side, a peaceful bastion of residential neighborhoods and sleepy estates, while downtown Easton, just across the river, sparkles with stylish bistros, boutiques, and museums. 

Residents can often be found strolling Northampton Street, enjoying first-class fare at one of the many farm-to-table restaurants, or simply gazing at the vintage architecture and historic beauty gracing this storied neighborhood. Easton’s pristine parks provide an idyllic spot for an afternoon picnic or morning jog. 

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Shakespeare once wrote, “though she be but little, she is fierce” — and there is perhaps no truer description of Easton’s shopping and dining scene. Despite the town’s modest size, stylish bistros and chic boutiques line the streets and bring well-deserved attention to this small town. Easton Public Market is a bastion of eateries and epicurean excellence. A bevy of international flavors tempts the palate, while Parisian chocolate and freshly baked pastries pamper the senses with the sweet, sugary aroma. 

Saturday mornings in Easton belong to the Easton Farmers’ Market, a dynamic collection of local vendors providing the highest quality fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, specialty goods, and gourmet fare.  

The lush, rolling hills of Pennsylvania perfectly set the scene for first-rate wineries, and Franklin Hill Vineyards is one of the region’s best. This five-star estate features sublime wine tastings and a host of outstanding varietals.   

Families delight in the Crayola Experience, a unique adventure in color and creation. With four floors of bold, bright colors and endless opportunities to create art, this vibrant spot encourages little artists to make their mark boldly.
 

Things to Do

Capturing a sense of whimsy usually reserved for fairy tales, Hugh Moore Park welcomes outdoor adventurers of all ages to delight in the wild beauty and verdant green scape of this lovely park. Walking trails invite leisurely strolls, while the museum and guided tours highlight the fascinating history of the area. Serenity is unmatched at Columcille Megalith Park, a lovely spot with labyrinthine walking paths, stone chapels, and spectacular stone structures. 

Set against the historic beauty of downtown Easton, the PA Bacon Fest has become one of the area’s most popular events. This two-day fundraising festival has been named one of the country’s top five bacon festivals and features cooking demonstrations, live music, and of course, savory bacon-centric cuisine.  

 Cultural events reign at the State Theatre Center for the Arts, Easton’s premier destination for concerts, musicals, and plays. This meticulously restored 1920’s venue thrills with art deco style, gorgeous architecture, outstanding acoustics, and even a friendly ghost named Fred.  

Majestic trees canopy the lush lawn and impeccable greens of the Northampton Country Club, lending a magical quality to this esteemed private club. A respected institution since 1899, the Club treats members to the finest in golf, fitness, spa treatments, and exquisite dining, all wrapped up in a glittering social scene fit for Gatsby himself.
 

Schools

Easton and Northern Lehigh Valley residents benefit from tremendous education opportunities through the esteemed Nazareth Area School District, Bangor Area School District, Pen Argyl Area School District, and the Easton Area School District, as well as several academies and colleges, including:
