Easton, labeled one of the Best Small Towns in America, is an arts and cultural center with a population of over 15,000 individuals who love living in a small town that offers the best of many worlds: access to large metropolitan areas like Baltimore, Annapolis, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington Delaware; causal and gourmet dining; shopping for all budgets from collectibles to fine antiques; eclectic art galleries; numerous public golf courses; the splendid Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries in their backyard for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and crabbing; an historic town center with Colonial and Victorian architecture; and an active local community.
Easton has live theater, live music, movies, and a range of restaurants to please any palate and fit any price range. Each October, the Waterfowl Festival in Easton is America’s premiere wildlife art exposition featuring art work from more than 300 artists recognized world-wide.
Easton is also home to one of the East Coast’s premier Plein Air festivals where many of the nation’s top artists gather to compete, network, exhibit and sell their work. Be sure to extend your visit by staying in one of the gracious Victorian bed and breakfasts.
