Explore the borough of Jim Thorpe
For any lifelong city dweller, Jim Thorpe looks about as foreign as a cattle farm. A small mountain town in every sense of the word, Jim Thorpe is nestled in the mountains with commercial real estate huddled around its main strip, Broadway. In the colder months, it becomes an idyllic winter wonderland, hosting an annual Winterfest that includes Mug Walk, when local vendors offer deals, hot chocolate, warm soup, and other goodies to visitors. There are also ice sculptures on display and the chance for a horse and carriage ride, if you really want to get to the next level of winter festivities.
