Exploring Historic Easton, PA
A timeless town with a colorful history.
Easton, at the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, was one of the only three places where the Declaration of Independence was read aloud after adoption. History has left this charming Main Street town alone ever since; its main attraction, the Crayola Factory, has been attracting visitors for over 100 years.
The Crayola Factory
At the Crayola Factory, where crayons have been made since 1903, revisit retired colors (raw umber, we hardly knew you), and take home a four-color souvenir box made before your eyes.
The Lafayette Inn
Kick back on the wraparound porch at the brick-front Lafayette Inn on College Hill, which evokes a clean, modern version of the Revolutionary War’s Georgian style.
On a quiet side street, Sette Luna cultivates a short Italian menu. The wood-burning oven imparts warmth, but the crustless cheesecake is what dreams are made of.
