Long Beach Fall Favorites: Get Your Cozy On
While the change from summer to fall is seasonally subtle in Long Beach, it does get a bit cooler (sometimes), and the sun sets earlier in the evening. So it’s time to enjoy seasonal delights, like cozy clothes, comforting candles, and pumpkin-flavored everything. Here are a few spots around Long Beach where you can find autumnal indulgences, from fall garb to tasty treats.
One of the best parts about the fall season is anticipating the fall holidays. Stock up on Halloween candy at Candy Warehouse (2520 Mira Mar Ave), where you can find bulk candy of all kinds, including some that are more unusual–jelly-filled gummy brains, anyone? While you can reserve your Thanksgiving pies at The Pie Bar (450 Pine Ave), there is no reason to wait until November to enjoy their Dutch Apple, Smores, or Salted Caramel Pie. If you can’t decide on a flavor, create a Frankenpie made up of your choice of six different slices.
GET COZY WITH CANDLES
While many celebrate all things pumpkin in fall, the humble apple also comes into season at this time of year. Ficklewood Ciderworks (720 E Broadway) turns fermented apple juice into a variety of creative and whimsical dry ciders. Try the Salted Embers, aged with charcoal and mesquite wood, or Moodyroot, made with beet and date sugars, blood orange, and roasted pistachios, for a fall flavor journey.
