Easton stands at the eastern end of Lehigh Valley along the New Jersey state border. Centre Square is a hub of activity with a weekly farmers market, restaurants and art galleries. Families flock to Two Rivers Landing to the Crayola Factory and the National Canal Museum. Stars of stage and screen perform at the State Theatre Center for the Arts.
A LITTLE HISTORY
Larry Holmes, former heavyweight boxing champion and restaurant owner who was inducted into The International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2008, is a native of Easton.
Sally Jessy Raphael, born in Easton, was a former journalist who starred in her own TV talk show from the 1980s to 2002. With trademark oversized red glasses, Raphael created one of the first talk shows to discuss relationship problems rather than politics.
