Fall Foliage Along Pennypack Creek
The canopies at this natural wonderland in Abington are huge, engulfing visitors in color this time of year. Stroll Lorimer Park's 2.5-mile trail that once held the Fox Chase-Newtown rail line, recently reclaimed for recreation.
A favorite photography spot is Knight Covered Bridge. One of the smallest
covered bridges you will see, the 17-foot span is painted bright red, causing it to pop against the soft shades of the autumn leaves.
SIDE TRIP: BRYN ATHYN HISTORIC DISTRICT
1001 Cathedral Rd
Bryn Athyn, PA 19009
Three buildings make up this jaw-dropping location, and each one is as distinct as it is inviting: Glencairn Museum, Cairnwood Estate and Bryn Athyn Cathedral. If you get your fill of beautiful leaves early, this is an awe-inspiring way to fill the rest of the day.
WHERE TO EAT: THE WHITE ELEPHANT
759 Huntingdon Pk
Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006
The setting of this Thai-centric restaurant may be strip-mall ordinary, but the selections like Tutti-Fruity Duck and coconut ice cream put it in a class by itself.
FAMILY FUN STOP: WILLOW GROVE PARK MALL
2500 W. Moreland Rd
The three-story Willow Grove Park Mall is the perfect place for families to warm up on a cool autumn day. The beautiful carousel at the third floor entrance harkens back to the days when Willow Grove Park was a bustling amusement park.
