What is your favorite thing to do in Greater Reading?

“My favorite thing to do is go to the Reading Public Museum for about two hours (to see the new exhibits that Reading-Public Museumchange periodically as well as to visit with “old friends” that are in the permanent collection); walk around on the Museum grounds for a while; and then go out for dinner at one of Greater Reading/Berks County’s excellent restaurants.”

Why do you love Greater Reading?

“I love this area not only because there are so many fantastic giving and caring people who live here as well as the fact that there are so many things to do in this region. It is also great that we are in such close proximity to major metropolitan cities for visits, yet we have an exceptional and calmer quality of life right here.”
