The Pagoda in Reading, PA - Day Trip from Delaware County PA

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Absolute Realty RS284559

The Pagoda in Reading PA is roughly 60 miles northwest of Delaware County.  

Pagoda in Reading PAIt is worthwhile to visit this beautiful structure, because it is unusual, has a wonderful vantage point of the valley below and is quite amazing that it is so close to Delaware County.

We visited recently on an overcast day, but we still were able to see Reading in the valley below. We took time to enjoy some local offerings in their cafe with a view. We had a local hot dog with sauerkraut, and a local soda, mine Sarsaparillas and Doug a birch beer.  

A $1 donation is all that is required to climb the 87 steps to the top for a 365 degree view.

There was a private party going on in one of the rooms half way up.  Rentals are one way of bringing in money to keep the Pagoda open to the public.

If you are wondering what to do on a weekend one day soon, check this place out.

Endre Barath, Jr. it was fun to visit.  One of those places I have meant to go to for years, now can cross off my list.  Hope all is good in LA!

Hi Sharon Lee ,  There were landings to stop and take a view on the way up, so the steps were not so bad.  Have a great week also!

Hi Gloria,  What an interesting building.  I have never seen a pagoda up close and in person.  Looks like this would be an enjoyable trip.
