Dozens of charming shops and interesting art galleries line the quaint streets of Jim Thorpe.

There’s an old fashioned 5 & 10 that’s right across the street from a delightful candy store that still stocks candy cigarettes and clove gum. There are outfitters with the latest trends in biking and kayaking equipment, as well as an authentic bait and tackle shop. We have shops with souvenirs and tchotchkes for everyone, whether it’s a Mauch Chunk t-shirt, a jar of homemade pickles, a bottle of local wine, a custom-made dried flower arrangement, or a hand-carved mirror. There are jewelry stores galore, as well as shops that sell everything from organic clothing and colorful hula hoops to homemade quilts and first edition books.


Our art galleries are well known throughout the region. Talented local artists have called Jim Thorpe their home for decades and they continue to produce fine art in their home studios, many of which are open to the public. Where else can you buy an colorful abstract expressionist watercolor, a copper-engraved print and a large-format black and white photograph, all within a block of each other?

Please check schedules and opening hours of the merchants, which may change seasonally.  See for a complete list of things to do.
