Easton is a town with a rich history and heritage that overflows with fun things to do in the Lehigh Valley. This historic town sits alongside the Delaware and Lehigh rivers, and its town square hosted one of only three public readings of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
It’s no wonder that Easton is known as the “Crayola City.” Here, you’ll find one of the world’s largest Crayola Experiences, complete with 21 attractions!
Dozens of hands-on, creative activities and a full day of fun await families at the Crayola Experience. Bigger, bolder and brighter than ever, the colorful adventures of this family attraction inspire kids and adults to explore art and technology and express their creativity in a new way.
Rather than taking visitors behind the scenes of a crayon factory, the Crayola Experience is more like a children’s museum. It offers three floors of colorful indoor activities that are complimented by water play on four other levels.
There are a few attractions on the first floor that you can’t miss, including a giant climbing/slide structure and the World’s Largest Crayon. Each family gets a map, tokens and a clear bag with admission, which you use throughout the four floors to unlock magical fun.

The bar is full service and includes a prohibition era cocktail list. In addition, it offers 10 different varieties of their own house-brewed beers.
National Canal Museum
The National Canal Museum interprets the history and culture of canals in Northampton County. Children and adults can harness a mule, steer a canal boat and participate in hands-on activities that help them learn about the science and technology of canal construction and navigation.
The museum is situated in Hugh Moore Park, a 520-acre City of Easton park nestled between the Lehigh Canal and the Lehigh River. Visitors can walk along the towpath, see working locks and 19th-century industrial ruins or visit the 1890s lock tender’s house.
The Elaine and Peter Emrick Technology Center, built in 2006 through a generous donation from the Emrick family, houses museum exhibits on the first floor and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor offices and state-of-the-art national canal archives and library on the second.
Nurture Nature Center
The Nurture Nature Center uses science, art and dialogue to help communities address local environmental risks. Housed in a beautifully renovated historic facility, the center’s staff engages adults, families and groups with a diverse set of programs aimed at helping them understand the science, policy and cultural implications of issues like flooding and food access, and ways they can prepare and make positive changes for the future.
The Nurture Nature Center also houses four art galleries showcasing work that explores nature, global science and social issues. Its main exhibit is Science on a Sphere, a six-foot globe that displays visualizations of earth and planetary science from four projectors.
Easton Farmers’ Market
As Easton’s oldest continuously operating farmers’ market, it offers locals and tourists alike an opportunity to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, meat, eggs, plants and flowers. It’s also a great place to stock up on artisanal treats, like single-origin coffee from Roastwell Coffee Roasters and homemade fried pickles from Sycamore Grill.
If you’re looking for a little extra sweetness, head to Carmelcorn Shop, a candy store that sells sticky-sweet caramelized popcorn and licorice, gummies, fudge, chocolate truffles, crystallized ginger, and toasted coconut marshmallows. It’s also where you can grab a refreshing glass of organic kombucha, a fermented tea that’s made with symbiotic bacteria.
Quadrant Book Mart & Coffee House
Lovers of old books and coffee can find it all at Quadrant Book Mart & Coffee House. The two-story, mid-19th century building has more than 50,000 rare, used and out-of-print books along with a full breakfast and lunch menu, Wi-Fi and more.
