TASTE

Seasonal dishes in Atlanta

Is there a better season than fall for indulging your foodie side? We think not. There are incredible seasonal ingredients to sample — and cooler temperatures that call out for hearty lunches and dinners. At Loews Atlanta’s Saltwood, the tempting fall flavors can be found in dishes like Venison Loin with pan-roasted chanterelles and pecan farro, and a Southern Bouillabaisse. Looking for a small plate to pair with your favorite fall cocktail? Saltwood also has a new bar menu, with delicious options that include Nashville Hot Chicken and lobster corn dogs.

SMELL

Freshly baked apple pie in San Diego

The crisp, cool air has us dreaming about inhaling the smell of a tasty, freshly baked, all-American apple pie. If you’re visiting our Loews Coronado Bay location, we recommend seeking out the Julian Pie Company, which has been serving delicious pies for over 30 years. The only hard part is choosing which flavor to buy: Dutch apple, cherry apple, boysenberry apple, peach apple or original? Perhaps a taste of all of the above?
Bonsecours Market of Montreal in Fall

FEEL

The cobblestones beneath your feet in Old Montréal

Heading to Canada this fall? The historic buildings, charming cafés and cobblestoned streets of Old Montréal will transport you to another time and place. You’ll feel the magic of Europe and the soul of Quebec all around you as you stroll through this lovingly preserved part of the city featuring architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries. (Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes because there are a lot of beautiful streets to wander.)

Crowd cheering at stadium | Fall Travel

HEAR

The crowd roar at a Chicago Bears game at Soldier Field

Fall is for football and in Chicago, that means the Bears. Grab a scarf and bundle up to join the faithful fans at Soldier Field for a Bears home game one Sunday this season. The best way to stay warm in the stadium? Join the Bears fans around you and cheer on each and every first down and touchdown!

Live jazz in Loews Chicago O’Hare’s Montrose Room

Looking for some live music to jazz up your evening? There isn’t a bad seat in the house at the Montrose Room, an intimate venue that hosts weekly live jazz performances on-site at Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel. The shows are popular with locals as well as visitors, making this a true neighborhood event. Pair a show with dinner at The Ashburn to make a night of it.

Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

SEE

 Philadelphia’s Historic District in all its fall glory

How well do you know your American history? Freedom, of course, was born in Philadelphia, at the Pennsylvania State House—now known as Independence Hall. In fall, the landmark is surrounded by autumnal colors, making this the perfect season to explore Philly’s historic monuments and charming city streets.
