  • Great fun for the family! My husband and and I went to this quaint little town at the Fall Festival. It was crowded. Make sure you check online for the schedule and events. Train ride was nice, if uneventful. It goes across town, across the bridge, stops, then heads back to start. That's it. OK for kids' first train ride, otherwise there are better train rides elsewhere in PA. Town center had crafts. I bought a pretty crocheted scarf. Prices on food is high, as you would expect. Only a couple of restaurants and they were very crowded with long wait all day. Coffee shop was very good. They had a good system for getting people served. Quiche and coffee was tasty. Jim Thorpe museum smells moldy, low budget. I guess they are trying with what they have.
  • Very great experience! If you want the best experience then I suggest you ride on the caboose. You are allowed to stand on the platform, sit on the booth seats and bunk beds, and even bring food! The train ride is 70 minutes long as it takes you through the Lehigh Gorge, the gap between several mountains that contains the Lehigh River. On the ride you cross bridges, go through a train yard, and even see a small waterfall! If you are vacationing to Jim Thorpe or just taking a day trip then I highly suggest that you take this train ride!
