WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Light summer clothes work well from late morning through the afternoon, however, bring some heavier fall clothes, a windbreaker, and a couple of sweaters for those cooler evenings and early mornings.
We suggest a windbreaker from Columbia because it's breathable and will work even on warmer days. It also has a packable hood!
A travel scarf is multi-use and great for when the temperatures can fluctuate on a trip.
With moderate weather, most of the year-round activities can be enjoyed in September. Some things to do this month are:
- Take a free walking tour
- See the city from a sightseeing cruise or a hop on hop off bus tour
- Explore a neighborhood! These are a few of the best areas to see:
