Find Cheap Flights to Harrisburg

If between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates in Asia springs forth a great Mesopotamian civilization, the Susquehanna River in the north eastern United States cradled Harrisburg. A proud capital state of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 1812, Harrisburg boasts of more than 200 years of rich historical bearing. The ninth largest city in the Pennsylvanian state in the Dauphin County, it played a vital and viral role, thanks to its good network of canal system and railroad developments, in three notable American histories: the Westward Migration, the American Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution.

These historical events paved the way for the capital to be one of the most industrialized cities in the Northeastern United States, especially during the mid to late 20th century. During this time, Harrisburg’s economic gains widely rest on good governance, heavy manufacturing industries, and world-class food export, a feat that has been enjoyed by Harrisburg up until this day, despite economic and political challenges that have hounded and shaped the city to what it is today.

What to see & do

Standing tall and proud in all its Italian-American Renaissance excellence would be the State Capitol Building, with its dome modelled after the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, while its magnificent staircase took inspiration from the Paris Opera. A majestic architectural work that rises 272 feet, the State Capitol Building houses art collections, sculptures, and large murals enjoyed by over a 100,000 tourists annually.

Apart from the State Capitol Building’s architectural wonder, you can also take pride in joining the Pennsylvania Farm Show, the largest indoor agricultural event in America held during the second full week of January, wherein you can witness county living at its best by watching a Square Dance Contest, or an Arena Carriage Racing. Summer time is also not a dull moment in Harrisburg with its American MusicFest, the capital’s Fourth of July Celebration, or Kipona, the three-day food and arts festival during Labor Day. A visit in Harrisburg will not also be complete if you will not pass by the Strawberry Square, a major shopping complex that offers variety of food and specialty shops. For upscale shopping experience, you may opt to visit The Shops on Third, and for international shopping delights, you can go to the Broad Street Market.

Call it a day and visit the Appalachian Brewing Company, a local brewery in Harrisburg that serves noble specialty drinks. For a smoke-free lounging in the city, head towards Café Fresco. Its chic modern atmosphere, coupled with its Asian-inspired cuisine, will surely soothe up any weary soul. To have a taste of good Irish beer, coupled with an extensive selection of steaks, seafood, and salads, head to Molly Brannigans.
