Bushkill is an unincorporated community in Pike County, Pennsylvania, United States.Portions of Bushkill were seized by the United States government during the controversial Tocks Island Dam project and are now part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Visiting Dingmans Falls and Bushkill Falls will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Grey Towers National Historic Site and Mountain View Vineyard, Winery & Distillery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bushkill: Lacawac Sanctuary (in Lake Ariel), Mount Airy Casino (in Mount Pocono) and Spas (in Hawley). And it doesn't end there: hike along Pocono Environmental Education Center, look for gifts at Country Kettle, immerse yourself in nature at Tobyhanna State Park, and take in the dramatic scenery at Resica Falls.

Jim Thorpe is a borough and the county seat of Carbon County in the U.S. Step out of the city life by going to Glen Onoko Falls Trail and Hawks Falls. Episcopal Parish of St. Mark and St. John and Eckley Miners' Village will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Jim Thorpe side-trips: Blue Ridge Estate Winery (in Saylorsburg), Mohegan Sun Pocono (in Wilkes-Barre) and Frances Slocum State Park (in Wyoming). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Hickory Run State Park, steep yourself in history at Asa Packer Mansion, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and take an in-depth tour of Old Jail Museum.

Plan my Jim Thorpe trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
