summer fun lasts
All fall long!

Book Your Trip

Treat yourself to fall in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region. It's one of our favorite times of the year! Rich autumn hues transform our countryside into a stunning backdrop for all kinds of outdoor fun like hiking, biking, kayaking, and camping.

Love leaf-peeping? Follow our self-guided barn star and covered bridge tours across Berks County while taking in the spectacular landscape. Attend concerts, country fairs, Oktoberfests and harvest celebrations. Speaking of the harvest, now is the time to "pick-your-own" apples and pumpkins at local orchards. Feel the heat of the NHRA Nationals, and the chill from a haunted hayride or two. It's a great time to visit Reading and Berks County. See you soon!

something old, something brewed

Our growing number of local beer makers invite you to quench your thirst at taprooms as diverse as the lagers, ales, IPAs, malts, and porters they serve.

As you journey to our assorted watering holes, be sure to stop at the fun spots you encounter on the way. Shop the art galleries and eclectic boutiques that dot our Main Streets. Fill your trunk with fresh produce at roadside stands, and by all means, brake for vintage finds at the many antique shops and flea markets that inhabit our countryside. Treasures await you this fall in Berks County!

cooler air, cooler festivals

Fall in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region buzzes with an amazing selection of arts, cultural and historic happenings. Heemet Fescht celebrates the harvest and while our many Oktoberfests (and we have some of the best) pay homage to our German ancestry.

A host of outdoor concerts and musical events bring young and old together to enjoy wonderful entertainment. Historically themed events instruct about our past through fun lessons and demonstrations. And our many train excursions offer a new and different way to spend time with family and friends.
