Those who want to live in a city with a rich American heritage should look no further. Easton was of the three sites where the Declaration of Independence was read on July 8, 1776, right at the square that serves as the city's center. Because of this, the city holds Heritage Day events, where there is good food, good fun, reenactments, and fireworks over the rivers. You can also visit the oldest building in Easton, the Bachmann Tavern. John Bachmann built it in 1754 and it served as the only tavern in the city.
Visit the Busy Downto
Visitors will find Easton's shopping district intermingled in with the historic district. Most of the shops and boutiques are within walking distance of the downtown square. If you are looking for variety, this area has it. Sophisticated shops and art galleries are mixed into the shopping scene, as are many small antique shops. Even larger furniture stores and clothing merchants are located in the area as well. Outside of the main shopping district lie small gift shops within many of the neighborhoods. When you are finished shopping, dine at one of the many restaurants or cafes near the square.
Family Friendly Enter
Locals and visitors need to look no further than downtown to find entertainment in Easton. The square and art galleries host many art events throughout the year. The farmer's market also graces the square on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. Just off the square, the Crayola Factory offers tours and fun activities for all ages. If history is more your forte, walk over to the National Canal Museum or the Signal Museum. Just outside of the downtown area are many parks within the outlying neighborhoods. The historical State Theater for the Performing Arts is located on Northampton Street.
