Experience the charm of Europe on a day trip to "America's Little Switzerland!" The picturesque town of Jim Thorpe, PA boasts a breath-taking, mountain location bursting with fall foliage.
Start the day with lunch at Molly Maguire’s, the town's oldest pub and then explore the quaint downtown nestled against the mountains. The medieval style churches and winding Stone Row Lane will make you feel like you're in Europe for the day!
This afternoon, it’s all aboard for the day’s grand finale! Ride the rails through the soaring mountains and countryside vistas during a vintage train ride. At the peak of fall foliage, ride turn of-the-century rail cars through the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway and over the Lehigh River.
For a little Victorian history, step back in time on an optional tour of the Asa Packer Mansion, the stately manor overlooking the town. Many consider it to be the centerpiece of Jim Thorpe and it was inspired by the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World!
This day trip will make you feel as if you've traveled to another land.
