→If you spend a good amount of time scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, chances are you’ve seen a lot more deep red, golden-orange and rich yellow images in your feeds lately. Ah yes, the opportunities for breathtaking foliage shots abound this time of year—the kind that need #nofilter.
Lucky for us, between the river paths, museums, wineries, and parks in the Greater Philadelphia region, whether you look up, down, or all around, you’re likely to be surrounded by a kaleidoscope of warm fall hues.
Various sources tell us that this coming weekend will be the peak time to see the colors of the season in all of their glory. With that in mind, you may want to check out one or two of these Uwishunu picks for prime foliage-viewing before the vibrancy is drained from the leaves and they turn, well, brown and crunchy:
Philadelphia: Franklin Square, Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon Gorge, Morris Arboretum, University City
Bucks County: Bowman’s Hill, Delaware Canal State Park, Tyler State Park
Chester County: Brandywine River Museum, Chaddsford Winery, Ridley Creek State Park
Montgomery County: Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary at Mill Grove, Evansburg State Park
If you’re looking for a different type of fall foliage experience, this coming Saturday (November 16th) is LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day. Thanks to this citywide park cleanup, you can see the leaves and rake them too ;). Click the link above for details about how you can take part in special projects to prep the Philadelphia parks for winter. And, for a map of the 78 parks where the cleanup is going down this year, click here.
