Geoff Penske Buick GMC - Serving Reading, PA
Located in the beautiful city of Shillington, Pennsylvania, Geoff Penske Buick GMC is proud to serve Reading, PA and its surrounding areas. Here at Penske Buick GMC, we take pride in our community, culture and hometown.
Located in southeastern Pennsylvania, about halfway between Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania state capital, Harrisburg, Reading is the fifth-largest city in the state with a population of approximately 88,102. The city of Reading is the county seat for Berks County and can be found within a short distance to other cities such as Lancaster, Wyomissing, Allentown, and Lebanon, PA.
Reading has a long and rich history dating back to 1748 when the town was established by Richard and Thomas Penn, the sons of Sir William Penn and founder of the Province of Pennsylvania. Emigrants from southern and western Germany eventually migrated to the area buying land from the Penns, and the Pennslyvania German dialect was spoken in the area until the 1950s and later!
Today, Reading has grown into charismatic and lively city with culture, heritage and charm. Recreational activities and a strong love for arts and entertainment help Berks County thrive. Reading was also one of the first sites where outlet shopping became a tourist industry and has been known as “The Pretzel City” due to its various local pretzel bakeries. Large consumer trade shows can also be found at the Greater Reading Expo Center, one of the largest regional exhibition centers on the east coast.
A truly unique blend of cultural backgrounds can be found in the Greater Reading area providing educational and enriching experiences unlike any other. Beautiful country side, the heavily-forested hills of the French Creek State Park, and the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary give Reading’s visitors and residents a great chance to enjoy the beauty of nature. In addition, a variety of festivals, historic sites, 30 museums, wineries and the PA Dutch heritage, among other things, fill the heart and soul of Reading, making it a great place to live and visit!
