Boyertown is a borough in Berks County Pennsylvania and is included in the Reading Metropolitan Statistical Area. The borough itself has a population of around 4100. The Reading area has a metro population of approximately 425,000.
A good place to start for basic town/borough information is the Borough of Boyertown website with the details ordinances, zoning, and the like.
The Boyertown Real Estate Guide is fond of the basic principle of real estate – location, location, location! Here you are 16 miles east of Reading, 48 miles northwest of Philadelphia, 7 miles north of Pottstown, and access to airports in nearby Reading and Philadelphia. All the “city” amenities within minutes/miles, but the charm and pride of a more peaceful rural/suburban atmosphere.
Incorporated in 1866, a lot of history in both the borough and the northeast. A great documentary details loads of history and trivia relative to the area. It is a place full of history and heritage as well as a strong focus on both current and future needs of community.
One of the biggest treasures of Boyertown is Frecon Farms. Your Boyertown Real Estate Guide loves to eat fresh, eat local, eat delicious! All of this happens at Frecon where tree fruits and berries are grown. You can pick your own fruits, buy them local, shop the bakery items, drink cider, and more. It is all here. We suggest you follow their Facebook page for current happenings and amazing tips and recipes.
Another local feature is the Colebrookdale Railroad taking you through the picturesque valley (think Hallmark cards or postcard views!). You can enjoy dining adventures, wine-tasting, and more – via train or rail bike excursions. Riding this rail line will make you forget there is a city anywhere near!
For a small borough to have claim to the Taylor Backes Art Gallery, all your Boyertown Real Estate Guide can say is WOW! This art glass gallery offers such unique creations and provides opportunities for locals (and tourists!) to learn/practice via classes offered.
Boyertown Area School District is highly regarded and serves a total district population of approximately 42,000 residents. Common in rural/suburban areas – local communities unite to share municipality functions, services, and schools to gain higher amenity offerings than if each town/borough/community was left to fund schools and municipal services on their own.
The Boyertown Real Estate Guide also loves the Boyertown community swimming pool (managed by the YMCA), and the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles.
Bear Fever! Boyertown has fiberglass bears all about town – find them, pick a favorite, take pics, enjoy the art, and put a smile on your face!
A couple of festivals worth mention – because they are super fun – are Pickfest and Oktoberfest! Both offer tons of food, music, arts, vendors, and a chance to catch up with friends and neighbors. The truest form of hometown fun!
A big perk for your Boyertown Real Estate Guide is boasting about all the region has to offer! Here are a few top choices to get you started:
Pennsylvania Wine Tours – the guided tours are terrific and well planned. Your palette will thank you!
Himalayan Salt Caves – offering relaxation and release of toxins for health benefits.
With more than 900 miles of hiking/biking trails in the area there are trails suited to everyone from beginners to long-distance back packers! The TrailLink will keep you busy for hours trying to decide where to begin!
