"The "Big City" near this country gal" Reading by SheDragon
Reading Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 29 photos
Although I was raised in Oley and Topton, both small towns, Reading is where you went when you needed something. Reading is not a large city, when compared to nearby cities like Philadelphia and Harrisburg, but it has everything a large city has...good and bad. Reading is best known for its outlet stores, though. As the picture says, Reading, PA is the Outlet Capital of the World!! There's the Vanity Fair Outlets, the 8th St. Outlets...all the stores along Penn Ave are considered outlet stores....and that's not counting the malls, Berkshire and Fairgrounds Square, and the big department stores and super stores that are absolutely everywhere! I can't think of anything you can't buy in Reading! Outside of Reading...as you travel nearer to Kutztown, you can find little shops and stores that sell souvenirs like little hex signs and other PA Dutch items, too. Whatever you want, Reading's got it somewhere!
Our discounted rates for having reserved a block of rooms was around $100/night. I imagine the rack rate would be closer... more travel advice
