Places for Summer Reading at Autumn Creek Apartments

Autumn Creek Apartments Blog, East Amherst, NY  Summer reading is a great way to wile away an afternoon, and we have the perfect spots to do it. Check it out.


Here at our Autumn Creek Apartments community, we have a variety of places to enjoy every day. In our post today, we want to highlight some spots that make a great place to slip away and enjoy some summer reading. Plus we have some books to recommend too.


Slip into our newly remodeled clubhouse and find a corner to enjoy your book in a cozy atmosphere or head out to the gazebo or our koi pond —there’s nothing like the sound of a waterfall and fresh air to create a pleasant atmosphere for getting lost in a book. Another option is to pack a picnic, take your book along, and enjoy lunch or dinner in our picnic and grilling area. Of course, it’s a time-honored tradition to read by the pool, so head on over. If it’s too warm outside, find your favorite place in your apartment to read.
