We know. There are a lot of blogs out there – why contribute another one?
Well, the main reason is that even if you live in Jim Thorpe, there’s a lot going on that you probably don’t know about.
There’s the obvious stuff: nice restaurants, hotels and B&B’s, great outdoorsy stuff to do on the river, bike trails and on the winding roads, train rides, the relaxing Mauch Chunk Lake Park, and a lot of entertainment for a town this size, at both the Opera House and Penn’s Peak.
Or you can come out just to relax, read a book, browse our unique shops and galleries. Sleep late, do very little, and do it at your own pace. In any case, we’re probably surprisingly close to you and hope you find the time to visit Jim Thorpe often.
What this blog will do is give some details about what’s going on. Jim Thorpe isn’t a Disney-town. It’s best enjoyed with a modest sense of adventure, and a little inside information can help make your stay more interesting.
About Amazing Jim Thorpe: Publicizing the town and all it has to offer is a project of Amazing Jim Thorpe, otherwise known as the Jim Thorpe Tourism Agency. We hope to provide you with additional information that will help enrich your experience of Jim Thorpe, PA whether you’re a visitor or resident.
