Get inspired! Enjoy the visual extravaganza at GoggleWorks, where 34 resident artists who you can visit with in person, create their work. For in person art instruction, sign up for a class at Dancing Tree Creations. While in Boyertown, be sure to visit the glassblowing studio of Taylor Backes.
When it’s time to dine, we recommend The Bridge Inn at Pleasantville, located in a 19th century tollroad inn with a great martini bar, Jimmie Kramer’s Peanut Bar, serving in the same traditions for 88 years and the Coastal Grill, for upscale casual seafood.
Cool Jazz! Cutting edge films! A massive factory right downtown turned art studios! In Pennsylvania’s Americana Region, we think completely outside the box when it comes to arts. As soon as you arrive in the region, check out the schedule at the Santander Performing Arts Center. You can see everything from Jerry Seinfeld to Celtic Women. Plan a visit during the Berks Jazz Festival, 10 days of world class, hot/cool sound, which coexists peacefully with the more traditional performances of the Miller Center for the Arts, Reading Symphony Orchestra, and the Reading Choral Society.
