Here’s how make it another great autumnal week and weekend in Greater Philadelphia.
First, line up where to eat and drink. Seeing as its Pennsylvania Wine Month, the region’s wineries beckon (especially now that they’re replete with fall foliage). And in the city proper, Black-owned restaurants and Caribbean eateries shine during Black Restaurant Week and Taste the Islands Philly, respectively.
As for things to do, there are recently reopened Center City attractions (the Masonic Temple and The Rosenbach) and a baby sloth to say goodbye to (Survival of the Slowest , which closes on Sunday at The Academy of Natural Sciences).
Then, there’s the kickoff of the Philadelphia Film Festival, with drive-in screenings at The Navy Yard; the annual Chrysanthemum Festival, when the displays at Kennett Square’s Longwood Gardens go ka-bloom; and Halloween happenings at Treetop Quest Philly and on East Passyunk Avenue.
While you’re out and about this week and weekend, remember your mask. Masks are required in the five-county region in all indoor public spaces, as well as any outdoor space where social distancing isn’t possible. (The Phillie Phanatic sets a good example.) Another tip: Plan ahead, as many events recommend or require advanced tickets. Read more on visitphilly.com.
