The buildings on the central square of Easton were restored to a Federal-period style in the 1950s, and subsequent construction in the area has kept this theme. The town is charming and lends itself well to walking and biking tours. Clothing shops display the casual look; those with a penchant for geese and mallards will find much to their taste. Easton is host to an annual fall Waterfowl Festival, which showcases expert decoy carving and painting by local artists. Fall fills the area hotels with avid sportsmen seeking their share of ducks. Stroll through side streets and coves to small docks berthing privately owned sailcraft. Grab a taste of the Chesapeake Bay from one of the several casual and carryout seafood kitchens located here. And see The Strand, an impressive block of homes of variable architecture propitiously placed along the Tred Avon River. A small but delightful beach lines the bank of the Tred Avon. Local residents bring their picnic hampers and spread blankets for a summer retreat here.
