Exploring Reading, PA: Liederkranz Oktoberfest & Renninger’s Antique Market
October 18, 2015 By Dagmar Bleasdale

This is a sponsored post I wrote on behalf of Go Greater Reading. The Greater Reading Region of Pennsylvania is an easy destination for a daytrip or a weekend get-away for culture and outdoor enthusiasts living 2-3 hours away.

Road trip! You don’t have to ask me twice to go on a road trip, and last weekend I was invited to visit Reading, PA – “Where Art & Culture Happen.”

There are so many things to see and do there that I had a hard time deciding what to do first. There are opportunities to explore arts & culture at every turn and many outdoor activities.

There are a lot of year round activities like Goggleworks – 145,000 square feet of galleries, classrooms, dance and music studios, a glass blowing facility, ceramics and jewelry studios, a 131-seat film theatre, café and 34 artist studios where working artists educate the public about using their process and means of expressing themselves through their art. A place to easily get lost in!

There is also the Reading Public Museum with exhibits for the young and old.  I decided to check out the Liederkranz Oktoberfest and Renninger’s Antique Market – a couple of great weekend activities.  I got on the road Saturday morning, picked up my sister-in-law Maria, and we set off on a fun road trip to Reading.  We stayed just over night, and I wish we could have stayed longer – we had so much fun!

There was no traffic at all, and after stopping for lunch, it took us just three hours to get there.

Before you get there, you drive through the country for a little bit, and I couldn’t stop gushing over all the beautiful field stone houses and brick houses on the side of the road.

This is an area where many Amish people live, but we didn’t get to see buggies with horses, even though we were looking for them.

While we were driving, I told Maria a lot of the fascinating things we learned about the Amish way of life when Don, Landon, and I visited the area a couple of years ago.
