In Easton, late spring and high summer are the rainy season, and July is usually the wettest month of the year. Winter is cold and snowy, but heavy snowfall rarely occurs more than once or twice in winter. Most ski resorts are closed in the winter months because snow can normally only be produced between November and April. Snow in the form of rain, snow or a combination of snow and rain is possible from mid-November to early April, but is rarely heavy enough to cause problems.
If you are looking for a cheap getaway to Easton, consider a trip in late winter or early spring. In summer, room prices tend to rise, but you still have enough left to do some shopping, restaurants and excursions in the area.
If you're planning a longer stay or just want a little more space, check out the TownePlace Suites at the Marriott Bethlehem Easton. At Quality Inn you can choose between a standard double or king room or upgrade to a deluxe room.
Start your day with a complimentary hot breakfast of oatmeal and freshly baked waffles, catch up on your work at your desk in your room, watch the latest movie on the 37 inch LCD TV or use the free Wi-Fi to plan your days in Easton. By far the best place to enjoy a hearty breakfast in town to keep fit is Pearly Baker's right on Center Square, where you can enjoy eggs and coffee and surrounded by stacks of used and antique books while using its free Wi-Fi. Other old-school favourites include Porter's, which is further down Northampton Street, and Porter's Bakery, just opposite the hotel.
There are major world-famous ski resorts, including Jack Frost and Big Boulder, which are just a short drive away in Macungie and Palmerton, respectively, and there are a number of smaller ski resorts in the area, such as Mountain View, Mount Pleasant and Mount Vernon.
From the southeast to the northwest, PA Route 309 provides relatively quick access and is a good road to continue driving, but motorists coming from any point in the east will want to note that tolls to the east are free and must be collected to the west. The toll on the Interstate goes both ways, north-south and east-west, and intersects with the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the state's main highway system, at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Interstate 95 in Palmerton.
ABE after Easton because it is one of the largest airports in the state and the second largest airport in Pennsylvania. As it is a hub for several national airlines, it is easy to get non-stop flights to and from Philadelphia compared to ABE.
At the foot of the college, you can also explore the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, which winds for 2.5 miles along Bushkill Creek. The Easton Wine Project, also at the Silk Mill, is on my list for my next trip home. For more activities in the area, please visit our Allentown and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania page. View Inn & Suites is just a short drive from East and is one of my favorite hotels in Pennsylvania.
It is a small but very well curated museum that tells the history of the region and its people from the point of view of local artists, historians and historians from the past, present and future.
Call Northampton Street adventurous and add just a mile to your trip if you get lost easily. It is a short walk from downtown and a few blocks south of the state capital building, but it is worth it for adventurers.
Easton is located at the confluence of the Delaware and Lehigh rivers and was originally called Lechawitau (Place of the Forks) by the natives. Thomas Penn and his sons surveyed the area in 1736, and Easton was officially born around 1752.
When the Lehigh Canal was completed in 1829, Easton became a centre for industry, production, commerce and culture. This later led to the rise of manufacturing, which attracted generations of immigrants. More recently, it has attracted artists, chefs and other creative minds who are looking for a place that provides space to grow and a community that allows them to thrive. This creativity goes beyond Crayola and can be seen in the beautiful murals and street art throughout the city.
The diversity extends to architecture, and every type of building, from historic buildings to modern office buildings, has its place here.
Easton was the site of the Declaration of Independence, which was first read in the USA after its signature in 1776. It will be read out to a large crowd in Easton, Pennsylvania, on July 4, Independence Day 2017.
We enjoyed visiting the family booth, where we could offer everything from organic products to scratchy pastries, artisanal pickles and Korean dumplings. Refuelled for the afternoon, we strolled through Riverside Park and enjoyed the view of the Lehigh and Delaware rivers. As we remembered the rivers, we couldn't resist making our way back to the Easton Public Library, where we discovered that pudding shots are something special and wonderful.
