See Your Breath & Catch It

One of the best ways to spend time in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region is outside! Our beautiful landscapes set the stage for year-round adventures like biking, hiking, and even fishing. When it snows, head to our parks to snowshoe and cross-country ski, or nearby Bear Mountain to ski, snowboard, and snow-tube. Of course, there’s more than one way to travel downhill. Don't let a little snow keep you from experiencing our world-class mountain biking trails. If time allows, bleed purple at an exciting Reading Royals ice hockey game. Cooler temperatures mean cooler fun in Berks County.
