Reading, founded in 1644, was named after the town in England and has long served as a residential community for people working in nearby Boston (16 miles away).

With less than 26,000 people, Reading retains much of the small-town charm endemic to the area, including an abundance of scenic beauty. Lake Quannapowitt on Route 128 is a favorite spot for local joggers and bikers. Middlesex Fells Reservation offers vast spaces – almost 2,600 acres’ worth – to hike (trails surround a natural pond), bike and just get away from the urban noise. 

Of course, Reading’s proximity to the greater Boston area means that it offers just about every shopping and dining option imaginable.

For starters, Christopher’s Restaurant has been offering great options for breakfast and lunch for years. The Professor’s Market offers a stylish deli experience, including specialty sandwiches, deli trays, pasta and coffee. Colombo’s Pizza & Café and The Green Tomato have highly-reviewed comfort food, while Lobster Claw Seafoods features homestyle clam chowder, seafood baskets and lobster rolls.

Shoppers can head over to the Burlington Mall, the North Shore Mall or the Oracle shopping mall. If they prefer more locally-oriented retail outlets, they can check out The Hitching Post, Goodhearts Children’s Shop, Aine’s Boutique and Raspberry Beret.
