"I love the beauty and colorful change of scenery that comes with fall. It's so inviting that I go on spontaneous drives off the beaten path just to see the leaves. There's also a new tradition underway at my home of filling it with scents of autumn (hence the random cinnamon pine cones in the kitchen). Each fall also means a trip to a warm place with a beach. And lastly, fall is about Thanksgiving. I look for three fun (but meaningful) ways to give back to others. Happy Fall!"
"My favorite fall indulgence is enjoying a glass of wine alfresco with friends at one of the many fabulous sidewalk cafes in Center City, and then freshening up my fall wardrobe at our chic and unique boutiques—like Nicole Miller, Kimberly Boutique, Knit Wit, and Joan Shepp. Then I top the day off with a relaxing, rejuvenating facial at Rescue Spa Rittenhouse. Pure heaven!"
"Fall in Philadelphia is really beautiful. I love just aimlessly walking to different neighborhoods under the changing leaves and strolling through my city during the fall. I always end up finding someplace new that I had never seen before—it's also very inspiring for finding my next spot to hang my art."
"Cooler weather can only mean one thing: fall shopping! Picking up a warm hat at Goorin Bros. Hat Shop or a pumpkin scented soap from Lush Cosmetics on Walnut Street always puts me in the mood for fall. With changing leaves comes the fun of scouting my son's new sweaters and coats from my favorites like Born Yesterday in Rittenhouse—new season, new wardrobe!"
"Fall may be my favorite season here in the city of Philadelphia! My husband and I love taking our 5-year-old daughter to visit Franklin Square and Headhouse Square for costume contests and trick-or-treating. Of course, we carve a pumpkin and toast the seeds. Now, we are looking ahead to Thanksgiving and the 6abc Dunkin Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade!"
"I love checking out Shady Brook Farm in the fall. Their market is stocked full of great treats including pumpkin ice-cream! They also have the best activities like pumpkin picking, hayrides, corn mazes, and other fun fall-related activities."
"My favorite fall activity is getting 'grounded' by doing a weekend yoga retreat. I love the feeling of being healthy, balanced, and flexible with doing yoga. My favorite weekend getaway places are in the Berkshire Mountains or working with Louis Delmar who does private yoga lessons in Philadelphia."
