We have spent several days in Easton, PA over the past few months. On the first trip, I brought my camera and explored the town quite thoroughly. A lot of walking the hills and streets to see old buildings and churches spread out around the town, walking along the Delaware River and Lehigh River, exploring old book stores, getting homemade ice cream, and seeing massive groups enter the Crayola Experience – most of which is considered the Historic District. It was a full day and very interesting to see the town, despite a MASSIVE storm which caused me to hide in the car with a book. We also found many places with EXCELLENT food (seafood, burgers, etc). It’s a lovely town and I highly recommend it for a quiet getaway.
