List of "Must See" in Harrisburg

by donhnick

I belong to a small group of retired directors and executives of a national organization, who once a year have a reunion to meet with former associates to renew old friendships and maintain bonds of personal contact. We usually meet in early to mid May at various locations east of the Mississippi. In 2011 we have chosen Harrisburg PA as our location. I would expect 15 to 25 people to come to the reunion in 2011. I would like encourage them to come to Harrisburg by informing them of some of the "Must See" points of interest in the Harrisburg/Hershey area. Most of us will probably arrive on a Thursday afternoon, and leave the following Sunday or Monday, so time is short. Suggestions & pictures of points of interest as well as nice and/or unique restaurants are welcomed.

Hi Don. Welcome to Virtual Tourist (VT). You should get some answers here from travelers to Harrisburg but until you do, type Harrisburg into the VT Search Window above. The default search is Destinations so you will go to a link to the VT Harrisburg Travel Pages. Click on the link and see what VT members have already written about the city. There will be Tips on hotels, restaurants, things to do and see, shopping, transportation, etc. The Tips will include photos, reviews and web links to even more information.

BTW, I suspect there are several towns with the name Harrisburg, so be sure you click on the link to the one in Pennsylvania.

Have fun!

Harrisburg is the state capitol and you can tour the capitol building. I have been there and done that - I have not been to the National Civil War Museum or Historical Society Museum or the State Museum, but those are also there.

Hershey of course has Hershey Park and the Hershey factory.

If you go a little bit east there is Amish Country and also in Ephrata is the Ephrata Cloister

Travel Tips for Harrisburg

Famous address'...

by naplesnate

Gettysburg is only a 35 minute drive from harrisburg and provides much more excitement than the actual civil war museum in the capital city.
You know how crazy the mid 1800's were and this is one of the locations where a lot of it went down. The small town caters to visitors and guided tours are pretty easy to find.
Don't have a specific person of tour to recommend but a visit is well worth it, and with a local college in the area, there are plenty of affordable eateries.
The site includes battlefield tours and well furnished museums.
83 South right out of the city brings right smack into routes 15S and 581. Stay on Rt. 15S all the way to Gettysburg.
Forrester street to the harvey taylor bridge also runs into 15S.

Summer Events

by PA2AKgirl

There's a ton of things to do in the summer in Harrisburg--some I've already mentioned, some that are definitely worth mentioning now.

Since they aren't things you can do all year, I guess they'll just go in one tip:

July 4th weekend

Pretty much this is a weekend with 5 stages of continuous music...all kinds, big names, lesser known artists. Combined with a crabfest, riverboat rides and other activities, this is a huge deal in Central Pennsylvania.


During the months of July and August, on Sunday evenings, you can listen to a variety of chamber, classical, big band and swing music performed at Italian Lake in downtown Harrisburg
This year, the dates are:
July 18
July 25
August 1
August 8

According to the website, the price is flexible to fit your budget. The purpose is to try to get people out for a night of affordable music--to concerts the may not be able to attend otherwise.

Labor Day Weekend

Kipona is a large festival held every year in's on the riverfront and includes the Regatta--boat races, an arts/crafts fair, LOTS of food (incl. the PA chili cook off, haha), music, huge fireworks display, and childrens activities
