Boulder View is another great lakeside restaurant with a huge patio and outdoor bar. This one overlooks Boulder View Lake, a slightly quieter lake as they don’t allow any power boats. Similar to Nicks, they also have lots of live music and fun events.

Traditional Old School Steakhouse, reservations recommended. The food is good and the menu is extensive. Their menu is definitely in the higher price range, so might be best saved for a night you want to indulge! Note: Louie’s is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The chat-n-chew has all of your breakfast and lunch needs covered. This is a great spot to go to grab a greasy breakfast that'll cure any hangover. The service is quick and friendly and the portions are huge! Located in a strip mall, it's convenient to Ahart's supermarket and the liquor store.

If you do decide to hit the outlets or make your way to Mt Pocono area, we recommend Pocono Brewery Co for yummy beers and a great Italian menu. They have a huge wood fire oven on the premises to make pizzas and bread. The service when we went here was excellent!

Parks & Nature
Hickory Run State Park has tons to see from the boulder field to the lake nearby with a day beach. If you're into hiking, one of our favorite hikes in the area is on the shades of death trail. There is beautiful vegetation and lots of cool things to see.

The boulder field at Hickory Run is an enormous field of boulders, it's a bit of a drive from the main road on an old dirt road so prepare for that. The view is totally worth it though!

Glen Onoko Falls is another one of our favorite hikes in the area. This is definitely a more moderate to difficult trail and proper footwear is required. In the winter parts of the trail will freeze over which is as equally beautiful as it is dangerous :)

Hawk Falls is a waterfall very close by, the hike in is on the easier side and you can get to the falls very quickly. Great for families and children although it can get pretty crowded at times.

Devil's Hole is a cool hike right outside of Cresco, PA. the hike is fairly easy and flat but you'll need to cross rivers so wear shoes you won't mind getting wet. The trail brings you into really cool ruins of what is rumored to be an old speakeasy or skiing lodge. Legend has it, there was a bottomless lake at this location -- anyone that swam in it sank to hell! There are remnants of a large double fireplace and other parts of the old stone structure.

Sightseeing
Nestled in the breathtaking Lehigh Gorge, this Victorian town is teeming with history, romance and family fun. You’ll enjoy the walkable downtown’s accommodations, shops, restaurants, pubs, wine-tasting and live entertainment, as well as all the outdoor adventure you'd expect in the Pocono Mountains. The architecture of the town looks like something out of Switzerland, keep an eye out for all of their festivals like the Fall Foliage Festival, the Jim Thorpe Independent movie festival, Christmas village and Jim Thorpe's birthday celebration.

The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway is a fun old-timey train that will take you up through the mountains. In the warmer months, they do a scenic bike train where you can load your bikes onto the train and they'll drop you at the top of the mountain and you can ride your bikes down. You can bring your own bike or rent one from the company at the beginning of the trail. It's mostly downhill and flat so it's a great ride for the whole family. Be sure to pack a lunch and plenty of snacks!

We enjoy having drinks on the porch of the Harry Packer Mansion Inn, with its great views of downtown Jim Thorpe and the train station. You can opt to do a self-guided tour beforehand or just head to the lounge. They also do murder mystery weekends that look like fun but we haven’t participated.

When we're staying at the house for longer visits, we usually make the 40-minute trek to Wilkes-Barre to hit the Wegmans. Their grocery selection is the best in the area. There are also lots of other big box stores within a couple miles like Target, Marshalls and Home Depot for any other needs.
