4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2014

The memorial is beautiful and well kept. There are always visitors taking photos and reading about this amazing man. Well worth spending some time here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

Really not much to see aside from the memorial a couple of statues, and several plaques which tell the story of this great athlete.

“Fall Festival”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2014

This is a gorgeous little town. The shops are quaint and you feel as though you stepped back in time. There are horse drawn carriages you can ride,a wonderful train, a magnificent gorge brightly colored with Autumn leaves in all their splendor. During this festival there are people singing folk -like songs in different areas. Wonderous smells of baked corn on the cob and breads and pies and kennel corn. There is even a Mansion you can visit and many many other sites to see. I can see why it once was called the Gateway to the Poconos.

“Very nice town to visit for the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2014

Jim Thorpe is a quaint little town nestled in a valley between the mountains.It has really nice little gift and antique shops in town.The train ride over the Lehigh Gorge is a must.It's a beautiful scenic ride with a lot of history given through the ride.It has a tour of the old jail where the Molly Maguires were kept and prosecuted during the civil war.There is a ghost tour of the jail on the first 3 Saturdays in Oct. for a minimal fee.But it is well worth the time.The town also has some good pubs and restaraunts for lunch and dinner.We ate in The Molly Maguires Pub and Steak house.The food was good and worth the price,
