Families looking for an imaginative day full of books, toys, and playful adventures will definitely want to make time for The Reading Bug bookstore. The Reading Bug is a beautiful family-owned book shop, so close to Hotel LiA that you and your family could easily walk and enjoy the neighborhood before beginning an afternoon adventure.

This whimsical store is designed to look like an enchanted forest, complete with toadstool seats and other woodland-like decor. Though primarily a children’s bookstore, The Reading Bug has plenty of activities and books for the entire family to enjoy. Traveling can be a busy endeavor, so you should definitely carve out some time for a relaxing afternoon of shopping, storytelling, and the magic of books. Once you and your family have finished exploring every nook and cranny this wonderful store has to offer, take a short walk back to the LiA Hotel to refresh and recharge before a nice dinner from one of the many delightful restaurants in the area.
