Join Us...and Stay With Us...
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, take some time for YOU,  you and your significant other, friends and/or family and STAY WITH US in Jim Thorpe and surrounding areas located in beautiful Carbon County, Pennsylvania during the winter months of January, February & March 2014.

Did you know that Jim Thorpe was voted The Rand McNally Best of the Road's  "Most Beautiful Small Town in the USA" in 2012 and was among the TOP 5 Finalists for "Most Fun Small Town in the USA" in 2013? Plus, were you aware that our infamous, historic street, Broadway, in downtown Jim Thorpe was just designated one of the TOP 10 Main Streets in the US by the APA's Great Places in America Program?

We Have A Lot of Fun to Offer You This Winter...
You may think that Carbon County is just known for skiing and tubing during the winter months, but in 2014, we are on a mission to change your way of thinking!  We have some fantastic opportunities for plenty of fun and relaxation in store for you, your friends and your entire family...entertainment, shopping, dining, workshops, tours and special RED BAG Discount Savings at a variety of shoppes, restaurants, entertainment venues and much more!

What's In the Red Bag & How Do I Get One?
On this site, OPEN THE RED BAG and see what  WINTER FUN & ADVENTURE awaits you...see what is available, register for your activities in advance and be sure to book your stay NOW at one of our many charming bed & breakfasts or our other participating accommodations in Jim Thorpe & surrounding areas. While there, be sure to ask your host for a  RED BAG, which will be full of special discounts and goodies to begin your adventure. And, don't forget to take that RED BAG with you and your camera, which will be extremely important for our  WINTER CHALLENGE Contest on Instagram & Facebook where you have the chance to take the challenge and enter to win a fabulous prize package.
