About Jim Thorpe
When you want the quintessential getaway in the Pocono Mountains, look no further than Jim Thorpe. Known as the Gateway to the Poconos, this valley town boasts plenty of outdoor adventures and fun for the whole family. Book roomy Jim Thorpe cabins in the center of town or in the foothills, and start planning your vacation in the Poconos.
Jim Thorpe typically gets four seasons each year. Summers tend to be warm, with temperatures topping out around 85 degrees in July. Winters tend to be cold, with temperatures dropping down to 20. The area tends to get more precipitation than average, with nearly 50 inches of rain throughout the year and 30 inches of snow in the winter.
Located only an hour and a half from Philadelphia and two hours from New York, Jim Thorpe is relatively easy to reach. To get to Jim Thorpe, fly into the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport, about 40 miles north of the area, or Harrisburg International Airport, about 90 miles southwest from most Jim Thorpe cabins. Since Jim Thorpe is nestled in a fairly remote location in the Poconos, you'll want to drive among the borough and most of the attractions throughout the area.
Things to Do
If you love the outdoors, you'll want to plan your trip around the four major parks around Jim Thorpe. Lehigh Gorge State Park features hiking and whitewater rafting in the summer and snowmobiling and dogsledding in the winter. The 15,000-acre Hickory Run State Park has everything from trout fishing to swimming to hunting and trapping. In the foothills of the Poconos, the 3,000-acre Beltzville State Park features boating, water-skiing, fishing, hiking over 15 miles of trails, and even ice boating and fishing in the winter. At Mauch Chunk Lake Park, go fish, enjoy a picnic, swim, or visit the park's environmental center.
For some water-based fun on the Lehigh River, book a whitewater rafting trip or a kayaking trip with Jim Thorpe Water Adventures. Great for kids and adults of all ages, these trips come complete with a professional guide and hot dog cookouts after weekend trips.
Whether you're a Jim Thorpe fan or you just love a good festival, you won't want to miss the Jim Thorpe Birthday Celebration, held in late May. Each year, the celebration features performances, a running race, and local vendors in the heart of downtown. When the colors start to change in the autumn, Jim Thorpe is the place to be, especially during Fall Foliage weekends. Ride the train, hike, or bike through the area's stunning scenery; try local treats; and enjoy entertainment at various downtown venues.
In February, warm up with WinterFest, an annual celebration of seasonal fun. Marvel at the ice and wood carving demonstrations, take a horse-drawn carriage ride or a train ride, see the kids' magic show, and get deals at local restaurants and shops all weekend long.
From outdoor adventures to community festivals, Jim Thorpe is the ideal place to get away in the Poconos. Stay at your choice of Jim Thorpe cabins, and take a vacation the family won't soon forget.
