Join Olympus Visionary Frank Smith and photo experts from Dan's Camera City in exploring all the town of Jim Thorpe has to offer in the fall. We'll start our journey with a private tour of the Old Jail Museum. This old jail is rich with history and architecture (and supposedly, ghosts) which will make for plenty of great photo opportunities.

Next, we'll make our way to the train station to board the train car, which will travel through beautiful fall scenery of the Jim Thorpe area. After our 1-hour train ride, you'll have the opportunity to find a nice spot to enjoy lunch.
