Best Place for an Autumn Stroll

The historic homes of many of Philadelphia’s rowing clubs provide one of its most famous sights—Boathouse Row, which is even prettier at night, when the lights outlining the homes reflect onto the Schuylkill River.

The boathouses are home to several active rowing clubs overseen by the Schuylkill Navy of Philadelphia, but rowing isn’t the only recreation that takes place here. Take a stroll down Philadelphia’s most popular paved trail, the Schuylkill River Trail, which is especially beautiful during the Fall. This is a perfect place for walkers, runners, bikers, and everyone else who simply wants to enjoy the stunning scenery.
