In the heart of Berks County by the Schuylkill River and Neversink Mountain, Reading is the fifth-largest city in Pennsylvania. Apartments in Reading offer stunning countryside views and a peaceful lifestyle.
Considered an up-and-coming community, downtown Reading is a hub of culture, education, and entertainment. One of Reading’s greatest highlights is its Pagoda, a Japanese-style building overlooking the town. This beautiful building was built as a hotel in 1908 but was only used as a tourist attraction, which it still is today. Scheduled for renovation, the Pagoda may soon boast a mountaintop restaurant!
The Reading area is home to five local colleges and universities. Other attractions include the Greater Reading Expo Center, the Reading Symphony, the Reading Public Museum, and the largest jazz festival on the east coast. Another must-see in Reading is the open-wheel racing of Penske Race Track. NASCAR, CART, and F1 racing has been held here.
With hundreds of acres of green space and two major suburban shopping outlets, Reading residents enjoy shopping, historic sites, camping, and many hiking and biking trails.
