New to Easton, PA? Here Are Five Things You Must Do!


Moving to a new city or area can always be a little stressful. Not knowing people right away can be difficult. Getting your kids all set for a new school can be stressful. Figuring out where the closet grocery store is and the shop with the freshest bagels can always cause a bit of concern.

Thankfully, Easton, Pennsylvania, as well as the Lehigh Valley, is home not only to great people, schools, grocery stores, and bagel shops, but many other fun locations that you definitely need to try out once you're settled in.

Here are a few of our favorites:

1. Easton Farmers Market

"The Easton Farmers’ Market was established in 1752, the year of the City’s founding. For more than two and a half centuries farmers and merchants have gathered in Easton’s “Great Square” to peddle their fresh and handcrafted wares. Easton’s proximity to Philadelphia and New York City and its unique place at the confluence of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers, made it a natural site for regional commerce and community gatherings." - Easton Farmers Market

2. The Crayola Experience

3. Weyerbacher Brewing

"Weyerbacher Brewing was founded in 1995 in a livery stable in downtown Easton, Pennsylvania. What began as a daydream in an avid homebrewer’s head has grown to the craft brewery that you know and love.

While trying to find our niche in the sea of craft that existed, we decided to explore BIG beers that would set us apart from the others. It was then, after brewing beers including Blithering Idiot and Merry Monks, our path in this industry became clear – making big, full-flavored, high quality brews.

From our humble beginnings in the livery stable to our approximately 30,000 square foot facility, we have always looked to push the envelope of taste experiences, obliterate style guidelines and have a blast while we’re at it!" - Weyerbacher Brewing

4. State Theatre Center for the Arts

The State Theatre is the place for some of the best shows not only in Easton, but throughout the Lehigh Valley. From top tier comedians to big time productions, you'll find it all.

5. The National Canal Museum

Easton’s Hugh Moore Park is a picturesque extension of the City of Easton where America’s golden age of canals is on full display. With more than two miles of restored Lehigh Canal, a canal boat attraction unlike any other in Pennsylvania and the rest of the Northeast, and one of the country’s largest canal heritage museums, the 520-acre park nestled between the Lehigh Canal and Lehigh River is a throwback to the years when mules pulling canal boats on narrow towpaths was a common sight in much of the United States east of the Mississippi River.

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor interprets this fascinating period of American history in the park through tours of the National Canal Museum and rides on the 110-passenger Josiah White II canal boat. The National Canal Museum is open seasonally, from June until October. Explore our fun, hands-on exhibits highlighting 19th century canal life and technology

And that's just a few of the wonderful places you can visit in Easton, Pennsylvania.
