Going to be in Easton PA for a couple days visiting friends. Anything cool/fun to do with a 9 & 10 year old?
Is there a cool outdoors store there or a trap supply nearby?


Just happy to be here.

Rent a canoe and float the Delaware River, just be sure to keep life vests on. Current is deceptive and will suck under even strong swimmers. Or you can bring some fishing gear and fish from the river banks, bass, muskie and walleyes in there, lots of small fish for kids to catch.

Dorney park water park is nearby. Wasnít my cup of tea as crowded as it got. Camelbeach water park wasnít too far away and was much better. My kids loved them


April is autism awareness month. Nearly 1 in every 100 children are born with an autism spectrum disorder.. 1 in 100. Stop and think about it...please

If I was going to be in Easton I would check to see if the Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum and the Nickolas Hawk Gunshop was going to be open to the public while I was there.

Just saw this... Crayola is definitely a good stop for kids. Dorney Park is not far, and in PA. Cabela's in Hamburg is the closest large outdoor store. It's the largest Cabela's and has some great displays in the store. Below are a few other suggestions:

Ringing Rocks County Park
Ringing Rocks Rd, Upper Black Eddy, PA 18972

Dorney Park - Allentown, PA
Cabela's - Hamburg, PA
Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs - Allentown, PA (minor league baseball)
https://www.877trainride.com/ - Delaware River Train - they were doing a dino days one - not sure if thats still happening.
Lehigh Valley Zoo - Allentown, PA/New Tripoli, PA

A few places that are a bit further
Land of Make Believe - Hope, NJ

If youíre going to the Warren County fair, hit the food truck line. If the Janekís food truck is there, try their kielbasa and definitely their pierogies. Best pierogie Iíve ever had
