Easton Pennsylvania Travel
Easton, Pennsylvania is a city that is very close to my heart, as I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, a region of Pennsylvania, and where several ski resorts offer snow tubing. Founded 1752 by Thomas Penn, Easton (Le High Valley's smallest town) is located on the eastern shore of Lake Erie near the Delaware River. Along with Allentown and Bethlehem, the Valley includes the Allenown - Bethlehem - EastON agglomeration, which includes the city of Eastonsburg and its neighboring towns and villages. The city is located at the confluence of two major rivers, where the Lehigh and Delaware rivers meet in the eastern part of our state, but it is also home to several other major cities, including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Bethlehem and Harrisburg.
The boroughs of Wilson, West Easton and Glendon are also directly adjacent to the city, but the first, the largest, is partially adjacent to Wilson. The Greater East includes Eastonsburg and its neighboring towns and villages, as well as Allenown County in the East and the West End of West Bethlehem, which has a population of about 2,500. The Easton Area school district serves the entire city and about 1,000 students at its schools, in addition to a number of other schools in surrounding cities.
Easton Area School District's four high schools offer a wide range of educational opportunities for students of all ages to more than 1,000 students, all located downtown and just one mile from campus.
Air travel to and from Easton is available through Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE), located just a few miles north of downtown. It serves thousands of business and leisure travellers each year on several major airlines. Eastons is proud to be the largest international airport in Pennsylvania and the second largest in the United States, with a capacity of more than 2,000 passengers per day. Air travel to and from EastON is also available through Le High Valley Airport, located approximately 1.5 miles south of downtown and one of only two international airports in North America.
Lehigh - Northampton Transit Authority (LANTA) provides public bus services to more than 4 million passengers a year. Many of the major metropolitan markets in the Northeast are easily accessible from Le High Valley by plane, train, bus or car. Easton is part of the Philadelphia DMA and also hosts numerous radio and television stations.
From Southeast to Northwest, PA Route 309 is the best road for traveling and provides relatively quick access. From east to west, it is a short walk from downtown to the airport and from south to north, it is a quick and easy ride to Philadelphia and New York City from Easton, Pennsylvania. From the Southeast and Northwest, PA Route 308 is well suited for road traffic, but from West to South it offers relatively faster access and is an easy and quick ride from Le High Valley.
View Inn & Suites is just a short drive from Easton, and guests can easily take a stroll in the park or cycle to nearby Le High Valley State Park for outdoor activities. The 35-mile drive north of Easton takes you through the cities of Philadelphia and New York City, as well as several other cities. Located just a short drive west of Eastons, this hotel is a great place to camp, hike, fish or even take a day trip to a local park.
Enjoy delicious dishes from local restaurants such as the New York - the best pizza in the area, as well as some of the best cafes 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. The Hampton Inn Eastons is located north of downtown and is ideal for short or long-term stays in the area.
It is a great place to stay for a short - or a whole - stay at the Hampton Inn Eastons, or even for a weekend.
