A surprising small town in the Poconos Mountains in Pennsylvania, that was voted in the top 10 best small towns in America. This so-called Switzerland of America is a quaint town rich with architectural diversity and occasionally, a New Orleans kind of look and feel. The old railway station is certainly reminiscent of Switzerland! Read up on the history of how this town got its name of Jim Thorpe, a former athlete and Olympian whose dead body was essentially sold to the town by his third wife.

Depending on where you are coming from, you can take the Fall Foliage train ride into Jim Thorpe. It is a quaint town with lots of interesting little shops that line 2 blocks. You can also catch the train there for a shorter ride
