Trestle Bridge

What to do in Philly in the Fall?

My wife and I are going to Philly in November for our anniversary. We plan to see a ton of museums and historical sites but what else is there to do in Philly in the fall.?

I loved the self-guided tour of the Eastern State Penitentiary, which is about a 10-minute walk off the Ben Franklin Parkway. It was really interesting to see the first prison in the U.S. designed to actually encourage penitence in prisoners. You can also see Al Capone's cell. He lived in relative luxury, right down to having his own radio! Make sure the Mütter Museum is also on your itinerary. Your wife's going to find it disgusting but we were captivated. It was a medical school teaching museum at one time and has a huge collection of body parts, including Grover Cleveland's tumor and the Siamese Twins' conjoined appendix. How often can you say you saw THAT?! At noon, enjoy the free concerts on the Wannamaker Organ in the grand atrium of what is now the downtown Macy's.

If you have a rental car, spend a day up in Bucks County, just north of the city. Visit the fabulous riverside colonial village of New Hope, then walk across the restored trestle bridge and enjoy its sister city of Lambertville, N.J. We enjoyed walking along the old Raritan and Lambertville Canal for a couple miles in the crisp fall weather.

Also in Bucks County is Doylestown, where you must visit Fonthill, a fabulous concrete castle built by a wonderful eccentric named Mr. Mercer. He founded the Moravian Tile Works as a rebellion against the industrial age. The tileworks still work and produce beautiful tile art from original molds from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is run by the Bucks County Historic Society. Fonthill was built as a sort of live-in catalog of the various tile designs available. The Mercer Museum, also a concrete "castle," is farther up the road in Doylestown proper, and is a fantastic, random collection of 18th and 19th century American stuff, ranging from wagons and farm implements to canoes, tools, silverware, housewares, clothes, etc.

Too bad you're not there in October. Midnight Productions has the best haunted house I've ever, ever been through, located on Haunted Acres Farm.

Have a great time in Philly. Have some cheesesteak sandwiches (at the Reading Terminal Market, of course), pretzels and stick buns for me!
