Tips / Destination

Fall is in the air, the leaves are changing color and the weather is getting cooler. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I get to experience all four seasons throughout the year and fall is my favorite; there is just something about all the colors and activities that come along with it. If you find yourself in Pennsylvania during the fall, head to one of these places for the best foliage.


New Hope, Bucks County
As a Bucks County resident, one of my favorite places to go in the fall is New Hope for a couple different reasons. The first is to walk across the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge and enjoy the fall air while taking in the beautiful scenery located on the shores of the Delaware River. During the walk over the bridge you can enjoy the foliage from both the Pennsylvania and New Jersey sides.


The next place you must visit in New Hope is Bowman’s Hill Tower. The tower was built in 1929 and, at the top, offers a 360-degree view of the Pennsylvania and New Jersey sides of the Delaware River; on a clear day the view can stretch up to 14 miles.


The Reading Pagoda
Located atop Mount Penn, The Reading Pagoda overlooks all of downtown Reading, offering breathtaking views of the town and Berks County. The Japanese-style pagoda provides an amazing spot to get a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding area and fall foliage.


Pennsylvania Grand Canyon
The area officially known as Pine Creek Gorge is commonly referred to as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, and offers miles and miles of trails to wander, perfect to enjoy the fall foliage. Although, if you are looking for the best views, head to one of several observation platforms.
