Five Excellent Summer Attractions In Philly Wrap Up This Week

Last call for beer gardens, hammocks, baseball and more...

With fall officially here, many summer attractions are (sadly) on their way out.

Yet this week brings a dose of unseasonably warm weather and a few remaining days for you to hit up Spruce Street Harbor Park, Parks on Tap and Supper Sessions on the Avenue, each set to close for the season by next Monday or sooner.

Plus, three games on home turf bring one last weekend to cheer on the Phillies!

Soak in the last joys of summer at these fun attractions before it’s too late.
