Horse-drawn carriage rides down Jim Thorpe's historic Race Street are a highlight of many a romantic weekend getaway.
Historic Race Street in the heart of Jim Thorpe is considered by many one of the most romantic streets in the Pocono Mountains – not to mention this side of the Atlantic.
In the foothills of the Pocono Mountains, just a block above Broadway, you are in the heart of all Jim ‘Thorpe has to offer but located where it’s a little quieter than the hustle and bustle of the main street.
Race Street also offers the comfortable elegance of the Times House Bed and Breakfast, as well as fine dining at Moya’s, shops, a gallery and free wine-tasting at Big Creek Winery, not to mention the magnificent architecture and Tiffany windows of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, recognized on the National Historic Register.
On Race, visitors stroll hand-in-hand and often mention the European feel of the street. A few minutes walk up Race Street leads you to Broadway, directly across from the Mauch Chunk Opera House, where Times House guests get a discount. This weekend Tusk, a Fleetwood Mac tribute concert is scheduled.
The Times House celebrates Valentine’s Day all month long and provides the perfect setting for your celebration with complimentary roses, a bottle of Big Creek wine and a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Just bring your love. For Valentine’s weekend – February 10 and 11 – special pricing is also offered.

The Times II Suite offers the romantic charm of another era.
