Why choose Jim Thorpe as your next vacation spot?
The town of Jim Thorpe is full of history, scenic views, character and more! As soon as you enter our town, you are met with acceptance from the small town vibe. With histories of the Molly Maguires, coal mining, the world’s first gravity fed roller coaster, and more, our town is sure to keep you on your toes. Once you get your fill of history, choose from the many different types of food we have to offer. Try The Molly Maguires Pub where you can get a great burger on their outdoor deck or munch on appetizers at the Broadway Grille. For a vegetarian selection, check out the historic Stone Row Pub and Eatery. Stroll up Race Street and down Broadway to visit our many shops and buy something for those at home!
You can’t visit Jim Thorpe without getting the itch for adventure. You can walk the Switchback where coal was once transported. Need something a little more daring? You can hike the Glen Onoko overlook where views from the top will take your breath away. Also, you can whitewater raft the Lehigh Gorge State Park to feel the thrill of the Pocono Mountains.
