Things to Do

Easton

Located at what the Lenni Lenape Indians knew as the “Forks of the Delaware,” the city of Easton sits on the banks where the Lehigh and Delaware rivers merge – as it has since the mid-1700s when the frontier town was laid out by William Penn.

Like other cities designed by Penn, the town’s focal point was, and still is, a large central square. The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence outside of Philadelphia took place in Eason’s Centre Square in 1776.

The best place to begin a journey into Easton’s past is Centre Square, where you will find the Crayola Experience and the oldest continually running open-air Farmer’s Market in the United States–just two blocks south of U.S. 22. Other attractions include historic walking tours, concert and theater productions performed by nationally acclaimed stars, horse-drawn carriage rides and plenty of art galleries nestled within the confines of Easton’s history.
