Hey, I just graduated from college and started working in the Reading area. However, I've only been here a week and I am already bored! However, I also have no idea what there really is to do around here. So if you have any good suggestions for a single, 22 yr old (with a tight budget) let me know! Thanks!

Interests include (but definitely not limited too - I'm always willing to try things out!):
Rollerblading (any good parks for this?)
Hockey (street hockey)
Photography (again, any good parks or overlooks?)
Music (I love listening to it and I also would like to get into running sound again)
Hiking

BTW, if anyone knows of any good organizations (Habitat for Humanity, etc) that could use some help - let me know!

Have you been to the Stone House, Happy Hollow Playground and walked the length of Wyomissing Creek to the Museum yet?

Anything going on for Wyomissing's 100th birthday?

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary up near Hamburg, Grings Mill and the Tully trail in Wyomissing, the Thun trail, which runs along 422 bypass, French Creek State Park in the southern part of Berks County, Neversink Mountain sanctuary, Mt. Penn sanctuary, Blue Marsh Lake, Antietam Lake, just a few places around Reading to go hiking/biking/photoging(?). Sovereign Center usually has OK concerts, the Silo for some local music, Philly is only an hour away for better music. Body Zone over in Spring Township, near the Target store, has all sorts of sport leagues you can join, even dodge ball, and I'm sure they have hockey. Call the Parks department of the town you live in and ask them if they have a street hockey league, a lot of them do. There are a few "action parks" in the area, the Stone Cliff recreation area is one of them. Do any rock climbing? The old Dwyers Quarry just south of Birdsboro has an area just for that. The Mid Atlantic Air Museum over near the airport is a nice place to take photgraphs, lots of cool things there, and it's the home of the nations largest WWII show. The Berks County Conservancy would be happy to have you volunteer with them, they have lots of out-doors things you could help them with. There's PLENTY to do around here, you just have to want to do more then sit your fat butt on a bar stool and eat wings all day.

Appalachian trail, hike all you want, no charge. Philly, east/west river drives, South street, 9th St markets, unlimited things to do. Go to Lancaster, great food, Amish. Take a ride down the shore. Just go out your front door and follow your nose, if you are opened minded you will find plenty to do.
