Many of the County Links on the left will keep you specifically in Carbon County, home of the town of Jim Thorpe, also known as the "Switzerland of America" in the northeastern PA Pocono Mountains. We add new listings and links on a regular basis.

Jim Thorpe, the county seat, was originally incorporated on January 26, 1850, as the borough of Mauch Chunk, an Indian name meaning "bear mountain." It was renamed in 1954 for the famous Indian athlete, who is buried there.

The Lehigh River, one of the finest and most popular whitewater rafting rivers in the East, winds through the heart of Carbon County. Whitewater season runs from early spring through June and then again in the fall.
The month of June sees an explosion of the soft white petals of the mountain laurel, Pennsylvania's state flower.

Summertime means outdoor recreation and a wide array of activities from sightseeing and train rides to mountain biking and water-skiing. This is the season for festivals, fairs and flea markets. For historic house tours and horseback riding. For swimming, boating or picnicking or just plain relaxing at one of the many state and county parks.

Autumn brings the changing of the seasons. This is the season of Oktoborfests and Arts & Crafts Fairs, of flaming foliage excursions by train and flaming foliage festivals.

With the beuatiful weather it's time to be thinking "outdoors"! So we put together something for you called our PA Hiking page. It's basically a sampling of the information you can find in any PA county under our "What to do" category. After tasting the sample start hitting the various regions and counties. One of our favorite things is "rafting" in Fayette County. You'll find Fayette County in southwestern PA. If the names of the counties intimidate you try finding things by towns. This feature will take you to the right county. Try it! You can't get lost and you will be pleasantly surprised.
