America's Best Parks

Slide 3 of 28

Fairmount Park; Philadelphia

Where to Picnic: There's a beautiful gazebo behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art within the park. From there, it's a short walk down to the Azalea Garden; a more winding path leads to historic Boathouse Row on the Schuylkill River.

What to Pack: The large and splashy Chestnut Street location of Philly's best gourmet shop, Di Bruno Bros, has an extensive selection of artisanal cheeses and charcuterie. About a seven-minute drive from the park; 1730 Chestnut St., 215-665-9220.
