Pros: Easton is conservation and historic minded with numerous places to explore and experience wildlife, or plug into an aspect of historical relevance. Neighbors are friendly, and the downtown area is cute and walk-able with structures from H.H. Richardson and Frederick Law Olmstead.

Cons: conservative value systems and stuck-in-the-mud baby boomer populations have left this town aging and increasingly isolated from youth culture and progressive ideals. A dramatic and inclusive social shift is needed to stimulate interest and excitement in this once interesting town.

There is much too much to say. Just take my word for it. In a nutshell. this is a very comfortable community, excellent schools, safety , perfect geographic location depending on your avocations, attractive physical environment, lots of conservation land, and a good blend of rural/suburban feel, a haven for anyone who wants to stay away from cities, but close enough to use them whenever necessary or desirable.
Great town, with many restaurants, parks, history and family friendly activities. South Easton tends to be more affordable and great for families purchasing their first homes.
