Your October City Guide

Though September may bring the official start of fall, it’s during October that fall really hits it prime in DC. The cool, crisp air starts slowly creeping in every morning and the colors on the trees slowly start to change. We can stroll across the National Mall without breaking a sweat or running into tourists.
So get out there, get outside the District lines and see all the different ways to appreciate fall. Here are some of our favorites:
KEEP IT CLASSIC

Now that the heat and humidity have faded away, it’s the perfect time to explore the great outdoors. Throw on that cozy sweater you’ve been dying to break out and head to the National Arboretum or the Sculpture Garden to get some of that fresh fall air. Want a new take on the word classic? Head to All Things Go Fall Classic on October 10 for a full day of tunes from some of today’s biggest names in music.
PICK YOUR FAVORITE
Pumpkins or apples? Whatever your choice, the options on where to go are endless. Don’t want to leave the city? Skip the orchard and hit the fresh produce at Union Market. Want the experience of picking straight from the patch? Uber out to Fairfax County to Cox Farms to get the full experience.
EAT YOUR HEART OUT

With the fall harvest comes delicious and hearty comfort foods. This fall we encourage you to check out all the dining DC has to offer. One quick an easy way is to check out the multi-day culinary + cultural festival at the Taste of DC.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
