Reading, Pa is 10 minutes north of Adamstown, the outlet capital of the world, which offers a vast assortment of top quality merchandise in addition to public museums, terrific jazz, a superb symphony and the new Sovereign Center.

Adamstown is the quintessential small Lancaster County town. The Inns of Adamstown vacation rental properties (Bed and breakfast and cottages) sit within a block of one another on Adamstown’s quiet Main Street. Adamstown is nationally (if not internationally) known as Antiques Capital, U.S.A. The region’s more than 3,000 antiques dealers located along the Route 272 corridor, in the northern part of Lancaster County, give the antique hunter literally thousands of choices, from pocket watches to kitchen sinks. As one of the top antiquing destinations in the country, Lancaster County is a paradise for those seeking the treasures of years past.
