About Us


THE JIM THORPE CURRENT is a monthly, full color, community newspaper celebrating the amazing Pocono Mountains area surrounding Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania!

THE JIM THORPE CURRENT features local stories and people profiles, bringing you news of what’s going on in the Jim Thorpe area, where to go, what to do, who to see, where to stay, where to play, what to eat and drink, news of festivals and more. Our goal is to be the “bulletin board” for those seeking to inform and tell their story to Jim Thorpe’s visitor, vacation home and local area population.

POCONO VISITORS: Think about the times you’ve visited an unfamiliar resort town. Where’s a great place to dine? What fun things can I do with the kids? How do I find myself on one of those fun looking rafts out on the river? Is there any live music this weekend to check out? Where’s a great spot to try some local cuisine? Who do I call about checking out some vacation home real estate?

FOR LOCALS: We also cover what’s coming up in our local community. People making a difference, charity events, local talks and seminars. You’ll find school, camp and library news. A new recipe by a local chef or mixologist. Schedules of fun festivals happening in our own backyard. And of course some great historical stories for locals and visitors alike to learn more about this unique and fascinating strip of longitude and latitude we call home. Send us your news at EDIT@JimThorpeCurrent.com
