American Candle is one of the largest unique shopping destinations under one roof in the Poconos. Especially fun for kids (and parents!) is the old-fashioned Candy Room, which holds more than 200 barrels of candy, as well as the famous Rolley’s Rolled Ice Cream Shop.

As you explore the 30,000-square-foot building, you’ll find candles (American Candle and others), jewelry (Pandora, Alex & Ani, Swarovski and the like), collectibles from Jim Shore and Disney, a boutique women’s clothing store, home decor and even a wine and craft beer shop that specializes in Pennsylvania wineries and breweries. Wine samplings are provided on weekends.

American Candle is open Sunday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
