Let’s be honest. The only time Berks County registers with some people is when there is inclement weather. But Berks gets a bum rap.

If you’ve had your fill of the Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross House and want some new historic scenery, a quick trip north can provide equal parts education and entertainment.
