Reading is located in Berks County in southeastern Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census, the population was 88, 082, making it the fifth most populated city in the state. The city of Reading has a well-known landmark; a Japanese-style pagoda that sits on Mount Penn overlooking the city. The pagoda is visible from almost everywhere in the town and was built in 1908 as a hotel and restaurant. However, it was never used as such, and instead remained a tourist attraction. Reading is full of attractions, such as museums, recreational activities, wineries, antique shops, art galleries, flea markets, shopping outlets and scenic drives in the surrounding Pennsylvania Dutch Country. For outdoor activities, nearby Hawk Mountain, Blue Marsh Lake and Nolde State Forest offer hiking, biking, fishing, camping and much more. History buffs can visit the homestead of Daniel Boone, explore Civil War sites, travel scenic backroads across centuries-old covered bridges. There are Old Order Amish and Mennonites in the nearby Pennsylvania Dutch Country who retain their 18th century way of life, including using horse and carriages for transportation. Other attractions near Reading include Susquehannock State Park, Strasburg Railroad, Gettysburg National Military Park and the Dutch Wonderland amusement park.
