A fun drive up the hill. The best view of the city. Anyone visiting Reading should take a turn up the mountain.

We visited Sunday at 350. They closed at 4. So we weren't really able to get a great look around the store. But the Pagoda itself is beautiful. Didn't get much info from the site itself. Found it online. Definitely worth checking out

There is always a great view of Reading from the Pagoda. The Pagoda is a landmark of Reading. It is said that Santa uses the Pagoda on his yearly voyage.

A nice place to visit in Reading Pa. Drive up the mountain to visit the Pagoda. Paths to enjoy outside and building is open to explore. You can drive along Skyline drive and see the city view, the Fire tower, and nature.

Interesting building to visit, heard it was originally built as a hotel 100 years ago, but never materialized, beautiful view of the city of Reading, below.
