Horse-drawn carriage rides down Jim Thorpe’s historic Race Street are a highlight of many a romantic weekend getaway.

A carriage ride or stroll down the most romantic street in the Poconos, an intimate dinner for two, a classic film at the Mauch Chunk Opera House , live music and a deck party at the Molly Maguires or Penn’s Peak – whatever style of date you are hankering for, you’ll find it in Jim Thorpe tonight.

At the Times House B&B, we’ve always encouraged our guests to start their weekends early and enjoy the live music and deck parties on summer Thursdays. The Jim Thorpe Chamber of Commerce recently kicked off its Thursday Night Date Night campaign, organizing even more offerings for visitors including Crystal View Carriage Rides, tours and attractions staying open later, as well as events at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.

Tonight the Opera House is hosting a 7 p.m. screening of the 1988 Oscar-winning classic, Cinema Paradiso. Tickets are $6. For those not already familiar with the film, check out this trailer for a DVD release.
