It’s Good For Your Health! No, we aren’t making this up. Studies have found that when you stop thinking about your own problems and focus on a project, your stress levels start to decrease, your immune system is strengthened and your overall sense of life satisfaction increases. This is because helping interrupts tension-producing patterns and replaces it with a sense of purpose, positive emotions, and high confidence levels.

The Food! The convention hotel is attached by walkway to the Reading Terminal Market. Beloved by locals and tourists alike, this historic indoor market features more than 80 vendors offering an astonishing variety of food, with some vendors operating in much the same way that they did when the market opened in 1892.The globally inspired food — available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert as well as for snacking — is the main draw, while butchers, bakers, chocolatiers, cheese mongers and produce vendors offer food, ingredients and goods for sale. From scrapple and samosas to soul food and smoothies, Reading Terminal Market is such a fantastic place to eat that it can be tough to choose what to get.
