The greater Reading area is a diverse community offering fun for all, we have both rural areas and the excitement of a big city in our backyard. There is an abundance of outdoor activity with hiking, boating, and skiing in the beauty of Berks and its surrounding counties. Locally, we have the excitement of live concerts, plays, comedians and sporting events at the Santander Center and First Energy Stadium. We are conveniently located 60 miles from Philadelphia, 110 miles from Baltimore, and 120 miles from New York City. With a 60 to 90 minute drive in either direction you can have big city excitement, beaches, or mountains. Check out all that the area has to offer by www.visitpaamericana.com.
