Campus Life - Things to do in Downtown Easton

Downtown Easton attracts people to its many restaurants, art galleries, and antique shops. The State Theatre Center for the Arts hosts concerts, plays, musicals, comics, and dance performances by marquee, bold-faced names. The Crayola Factory and the National Canal Museum are very popular with families.

For outdoor adventures, the Pocono Mountains, situated just north of the Lehigh Valley, offer skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Warmer weather brings people out on the rivers and wooded trails for fishing, tubing, walking, hiking, and biking.

Easton’s Main Street Initiative is a great resource to find out what’s happening downtown. In addition, the Easton Business Association puts out a monthly calendar of events for the city. Laini’s Little Pocket Guide offers an offbeat, insider’s guide to cities in the region along with the hidden treasures and local favorites, and the Lehigh Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau provides an overview of the area’s shopping, hotels, spas, restaurants, sports, and more.
