About Reading, PA

READING, PENNSYLVANIA REAL ESTATE

Country charm in southeastern Pennsylvania

Reading is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's fifth-largest city and a hub for industry and commerce in the region, with ample job opportunities without the hustle and bustle of larger cities. It is the seat of Berks County, which is an important agricultural area. The city is the home of such events as the Berks Jazz Fest and Country Fest, as well as venues like the Santander Arena and Santander Performing Arts Center, which host a variety of events.

One of its most iconic local landmarks is a Japanese-style pagoda, built in 1908, that overlooks the city and houses a unique caf?. Reading is also home to the real-life Reading Railroad from board game fame. Reading is also a stone's throw away from incredible natural areas, including French Creek State Park and the Blue Marsh Lake Recreation Area.

The Reading metro area, particularly suburban communities like Wyomissing, continues to attract new residents with its low cost of living and low crime rates. Reading also benefits from its convenient location, as it is just a stone's throw away from Philadelphia. Residents can easily access Lancaster and Amish country as well.
