The three million people of the Lehigh Valley. An hour to New York City. An hour to Philadelphia. Close to skiing in the Pocono Mountains. Close to beaches of the Jersey Shore. Dining. Shopping. Culture. Sports. What you seek, you’ll find. Easton is our city and College Hill our home. It’s fun, funky, and fresh.
Easton Farmers’ Market: Established in 1752 and voted as the people’s choice for the best market in the country, the Easton Farmers’ Market is a perennial favorite.
Easton Public Market: Buy groceries, grab a meal, buy flowers or a book, listen to music, take a cooking class, or just chill with your friends.
Restaurant Scene: Easton has become a food and beverage destination with fine dining and craft breweries a short distance from campus and cuisine that includes seafood, sushi, breakfast, steak, Thai, Indian, Colombian, Mexican, French, British, Italian, Mediterranean, Southern, and more.
Outdoor Life: We have the 165-mile D&L Bike Trail that rolls through town or the nearby Appalachian Trail for hiking. The Karl Stirner Arts Trail is a favorite for runners, dog walkers, and public art. The Delaware and Lehigh Rivers and Bushkill Creek make great places to kayak, paddleboard, or cast a line.
Festivals: Imagine the entire downtown smelling like bacon. It happens during BaconFest when 86,000 people descend into the streets to eat!
Eat, drink, and stink at Easton’s Garlic Fest.
Add Heritage Day, Festival Cultural Hispano, Lebanese Festival, Greek Food Festival, and Clam Jam, you have many ways to expand and explore… your mind and waistline!
Arts and Culture: Fun abounds with various galleries, art events, and shows at the Williams Center and State Theatre. Bop downtown for the monthly Easton OutLoud activities or travel across the valley to enjoy minor league baseball and hockey.
