Easton Town Center takes retail to a whole new level. Some developers set their sites on a plot of land outside the city, but instead of putting up a regular old mall, they decided to build a small town. They did, complete with a town square, a town fountain, little streets zigzagging through small city blocks. But instead of local businesses and residential buildings lining those streets, it's mall shops, mall eateries, and mall entertainment. All the cosmetic touches are there, from cute little building facades to cute little old-timey police cars providing security. And there are three major hotels on the outskirts of "town" so that shoppers can truly immerse themselves in this little bubble. See website for complete business listing.
