Reading Named to 10 Most Exciting Places in PA List

Nestled between Philly and Pittsburgh, Reading may seem like "just another city" in Pennsylvania, but that could not be further from the truth.  Reading's history, natural beauty, cultural activities, and low cost of living all played a part in earning it a spot on Movoto's list of "10 Most Exciting Places In Pennsylvania".

Mt. Penn Pagoda Reading PA


Ranked No. 8 on Movoto's list, Reading ranked well in most categories across the board.  Reading was named the fifth most densely-populated city in Pennsylvania.  It also had the sixth highest number of music venues per capita, and the 17th for the most young people.


Reading is a unique blend of modern, urban activities and small town charm.  Nowhere other than Reading can you enjoy an afternoon drive to a Pennsylvania German farm and then return to attend a live performance of classical music by the Reading Symphony Orchestra later the same day.

Visit the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, cheer on the Reading Royals Hockey Team, or attend the annual Berks Jazz Festival. After you eat and drink up local Reading culture, arts, and entertainment, select from a "full menu" of local bistros, bars, PA Dutch restaurants, and even farmers markets to sample some the best food and drinks in town.


Reading offers something for everyone.  Whether you are a visitor, a new Reading resident or a lifetime local, you will quickly understand why there is truly no other place like Reading.
