Jim Thorpe is a jewel of a town even though it is perhaps experiencing some downturn in the tourist industry.
We went there to hike and bike the Lehigh Gorge trail and we will definitely return. It is a beautiful area. We rented bikes through Pocono Biking and would definitely recommend this business. Very friendly and provide quality rentals and a shuttle service to the trail head. Also the town has an opera house with an impressive list of live entertainment (music). It is a great spot spend a few days.
