The heat is on in Wayne, but residents of our community know how to keep their cool all summer long. Whether you are new to Wayne or simply looking for a few new things to try out, the staff at Advanced Vein & Vascular Center has five great ways to beat the heat this season.
Get Your Exercise at Fairmount Park
Whether your activity of choice is jogging, biking or horseback riding, you can get your fill at Fairmont Park. The biggest park system in Philadelphia offers something for everyone looking to get away from the city and enjoy a day in the beautiful natural environment of Pennsylvania. You can even take in a concert at one of two outdoor venues or tour the historic homes in the area in a quaint Victorian-style trolley.
See the City from a New Perspective
Get a new look at Wayne and surrounding areas with a hot air balloon ride. The United States Hot Air Balloon Team offers one-hour flights over Lancaster County, although the adventure begins before the balloon ever leaves the ground. Plan to come early to help your flight crew assemble the balloon and then enjoy your bird’s eye views of Lancaster’s farmland. Finish off with a champagne toast in their air-conditioned van and receive your flight certificate to remember your day.
Stroll the Gardens of Chanticleer
Chanticleer is considered one of the best gardens in the Philadelphia area, dating back to the early 20th century. This estate features a vast array of different garden areas, including Asian Woods, the Elevated Walkway and the House Gardens. With orchards, woodlands and water features, you will never be at a loss for another beautiful sight to take in on your visit. There are also areas to enjoy a bite to eat and painting is allowed in the gardens during certain days of the week.
Get Fresh at the Lancaster County Farmers Market
The Lancaster County Farmers Market is the go-to place for fresh local produce and a variety of other vendors and activities. The county market opened in Wayne in 1951 after spending two decades in Rosemont. In addition to fruits, vegetables and plants, you will find a variety of bakeries offering homemade fare. Sip a coffee while you browse the displays of smoked meats, fresh pastas and arts and crafts.
Finish Your Day at the Wayne Coffee & Ice Cream Bar
No summer day is complete without a visit to the local ice cream shop and Wayne fits the ticket with the Wayne Coffee and Ice Cream Bar. This quaint shop features locally crafted ice creams and even offers vegan and non-dairy varieties for those on a restricted diet. The coffee shop offers a menu of premium roasts and baked goods for your enjoyment, as well as healthy handcrafted granolas to start your morning right.
