Jim Thorpe’s annual Fall Foliage Festival showcases the town in all of Mother Nature’s splendor.
Nestled in the breathtaking Lehigh Gorge, the town’s unique setting makes it one of the best spots in the country to view the Technicolor landscape from a variety of vantage points.
Brightly colored trees from Flagstaff, Mt. Pisgah and Bear Mountain surround you, whether you’re shopping the walkable downtown’s close to 50 shops and galleries, taking in a concert on one of four stages around the historic district – new location this year is the beautiful Race Street Park, enjoying live entertainment from coal cracker and rock and roll to belly dancing, more than 30 artisans and crafters, a variety of food trucks and lots of family fun.
Train rides on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway are always a favorite of festival goers, with special autumn leaf excursions from Reading this year. In fact, Smarter Travel named the Reading Northern Blue Mountain and Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway last year among the top 5 fall foliage train rides in the US. The 45-minute scenic tours through the Lehigh Gorge will operate daily all month long.
Once the sun goes down, dinner at one of Jim Thorpe’s fab restaurants and pubs will get you ready for a concert at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.
Children: 7-12; $6.
