Nick & Amy Penna’s Fall Guide!

September 23, 2015

Living in New England, fall is always one of our favorite times of the year. With the kids back to school and the lazy summer days behind us, our schedules kick into full gear, which is why our free time is spent close to home.

 Activity with the Kids


HIS: We love hiking to the lookout tower at Blue Hills. The fall foliage is beautiful and it’s a great hike that we can manage with all three kids.

HERS: Going apple picking at Carlson Orchards is a must. It’s big enough that is has a small farm store with apple cider, but isn’t too crowded.

Restaurant to Try


HIS: Santouka in Cambridge serves up amazing ramen. I go for the Choice Pork Ramen, which is perfect for when the weather gets cool and you’re craving a bowl of hot soup.

HERS: We love to eat at Hojoko. I always have an order of the Steak Um’s – wagyu short ribs with sesame vinaigrette and green kimchi. For a salad, I recommend the Weed, which is wild seaweed salad with cucumber and dashi dressing – it’s not to be missed!



HIS: Cycle, cycle, cycle on the mountain and road as much as I can! It’s my favorite time of year to be on my bike.

HERS: I love mixing up my workout routine – it’s time to get back to work after a summer of lazy days and strolls on the beach! Mondays – run outside. Tuesdays – yoga at Stil Studio. Wednesdays – November Project at 5:30am! Thursdays – Tread and Shred class at Premier Fitness. Fridays – SoulCycle. Saturday I run outside and Sunday is for much deserved rest!



HIS: It’s the perfect season for beer! I prefer Trillium Artaic Double IPA, made with raw wildflower honey.

HERS: A Stonewall cocktail – made with rum, ginger beer and apple cider. Yum!

 Weekend Getaway

05-weekendHIS: We love taking a quick trip down to NYC. Shopping and trying new restaurants in the cooler weather makes for the perfect weekend trip.

HERS: Taking a weekend getaway to the Berkshires is always fun. If we’re in the mood to splurge we love to stay at the Wheatleigh!
