The community feeling. Greater Reading is a great place to live, work and raise a family.

What’s your favorite thing about playing in Greater Reading?
There are a lot of great golf courses, parks for the kids and of course several great establishments to grab a drink and dinner.

What do you love most about being able to offer residents of Greater Reading with awesome lifestyle opportunities?
Be it a hockey game, concert, Broadway show, or kids show we try to offer big city entertainment at a reasonable price in Downtown Reading.

Tell us one thing about your organization that we might not know?
I think what most people don’t realize how affordable and FUN it is to go to a Reading Royals game. Many also do not recognize the impact of having an arena and ice hockey team in our city and what it does for our local economy and community.

Share a hidden gem of Greater Reading.
This area is great because you are near everything. It’s a short car or train ride to Lancaster, Hershey, Philadelphia, shore points and New York. We have a small-town community feel with big city fun!

What is your favorite event or attraction in Greater Reading?
The Santander Arena of course! Reading Liederkranz is a real gem for the community and a must visit in the fall.
