Very nice town, friendly people and lots of family friendly activities. The area is quiet, but have patches of neighborhoods with families and children. Many stores and shops around for convienence, but plenty of open space. The police and fire department get along well with thw residents and are extremely friendly. A pool, library, you name it Palmer has it. Execeptional town to raise a family, friendly neighbors and a great school district.

Quiet, family-friendly neighborhoods, proximity to stores and malls, good school district, many parks and walking paths, and relationships with other townships are friendly and easily created.
There are many generic restaurants in the area such as Applebees, Red Robin, Ruby Tuesday's, Carrabba's, Olive Garden, etc. I personally love Red Robin's chicken caesar wrap with french fries. I get it everytime I go and it never ceases to amaze me! It is also a reasonable price! As you drive closer to the city of Easton there are finer restaurants that are more authentic and expensive. Mesa has the best guacamole in the lehigh valley! They also have Taco Tuesdau which is only $2 per taco! Great deal and great service. Overall the nightlife in Easton is not very good unless you venture downtown as well. I personally do not know much about since I am under 21.
