Harrisburg sometimes gets overshadowed by the other big cities in Pennsylvania, but it has great attractions of its own. If a person plans well, they can see the best of Harrisburg in one day. Here’s a sample itinerary for visitors of Pennsylvania’s capital.
In the Morning
Start the day with breakfast at one of Harrisburg’s popular diners or cafés, and then sign up for a tour of the Pennsylvania State Capitol. Half-hour guided tours start at 8:30 in the morning, or check out one of 18 interactive exhibits. The State Museum of Pennsylvania is right next door, and the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts is only blocks away.
In the Afternoon
Following happy hour and lunch at Bricco, take in a nature hike at Wildwood Park. Walk along the lake on Towpath Trail, or step on Wildwood Way Trail for a real workout. The more indoors-y types can study nature in the Benjamin Olewine III Nature Center; it’s perfectly safe, so no one needs a Harrisburg workers’ comp attorney to recoup injury-related expenses.
In the Evening
After a satisfying dinner at Duke’s Bar and Grille, drive to City Island to catch a nighttime match between the Harrisburg Senators and the visiting team. Those who prefer playing on their own can dine on Thai food at Bangkok 56 and then head to Red Crown Bowling to play a few rounds to cap off a fun day in Harrisburg.
