VERY Crisp: Fall Getaways
It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the last few weekends before the holiday rush and winter set in. We have a list of VERY Crisp fall getaways that are sure to delight.
If you’re looking for a scare, head to Gettysburg, PA. Spend the weekend at The Gettysburg Hotel, established in 1797, or the Inn at Lincoln Square. Book a ghost tour at Gettysburg Ghost Tours and make sure to visit the battlefields. The battlefield offers a range of activities from ranger guided tours to campfires and kid-friendly activities. A great dinner recommendation is Food 101, but it is a BYO, so come prepared! You can enjoy one VERY Spooky weekend!
The Philadelphia area has quite a few vineyards that make great day trips to tour and discover local vineyards. The South Jersey Wine Trail and Chaddsford Winery are two great choices. Chaddsford Winery has Trick or Treat pairings through November 1, pairing their local wines with locally made Halloween goodies. Visit the vineyards and enjoy a VERY Boozy time discovering new wines. Connect with UBER to commute safely.
There are many orchards in the area, but a favorite of ours is Linvilla Orchard. It’s a quick drive from Center City, and offers visitors the chance to pick apples, take a hayride through the farm, visit the pumpkin patch and visit the farm store. The farm store offers pre-picked apples and VERY Tasty baked treats.
There are many daytrips you can take and enjoy the beauty of fall. Red Buffalo Ranch in Collegeville offers horseback riding lessons and guided tours. The ranch offers a Western Weekend package, which is perfect for city slickers.
Wissahickon Valley Park is the perfect option for a late fall hike. The park offers over 50 miles of trails to explore, many with breath-taking views. Enjoy being VERY Outdoors while the weather’s still cooperating.
