All East Coast towns look pretty in the Fall, but Philadelphia, in my eyes, always looks amazing. I get around more than the average resident but we have a lock on some beautiful stuff: the Parkway, Kelly Drive, Lincoln Drive, Fairmount Park as a whole, the Wissahickon, Morris Arboretum and well, hey, loads more (note the NW bias here)!
This is a great time to escape the madness of NYC and come to Philly to give it a once-over. Tons of easy hotel options (my favorites are Hotel Monaco and the Hotel Palomar). The quiet time before the holidays set in and can get you ready for a spring action move!
