Welcome to Harrisburg, PA!

Welcome to Pennsylvania's state capital, Harrisburg. Harrisburg is centrally located with easy access to all the Central Atlantic metropolitan hubs. It is only 170 miles southwest of New York City, 103 miles west of Philadelphia, 211 miles east of Pittsburgh, 85 miles north of Baltimore, and 129 miles north of Washington. 

This area has grown from a modest ferry outpost to a capital city. Harrisburg is made up of Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry Counties which includes the Pennsylvania real estate areas of: Hershey, Palmyra, Hummelstown, Middletown, Elizabethtown, and Harrisburg on the East Shore.  The West Shore consists of Camp Hill, Mechanicsburg, Enola, and Lemoyne.

Harrisburg, offers city living, and you can choose from Harrisburg row homes, Harrisburg condos or single-family Harrisburg homes. Harrisburg has the Susquehanna River flowing right through it, so you can enjoy the Riverfront Park and City Island.

 

 

 Harrisburg Skyline

Harrisburg hosts two major festivals: The Harrisburg Jazz and MultiCultural Festival every July 4th weekend, and Kipona Celebration, held every Labor Day weekend.  These are the largest street fairs in the county, and draw thousands of visitors to view the displays of various artists that include jewelry, artwork, painting, metalwork, glasswork, music, as well as many other vendors, great food, and confections. Harrisburg also hosts a wonderful Summer Concert Series held at Reservoir Park Saturdays in July and August.

Harrisburg has a wonderful addition to the city called City Island. Located in the middle of the Susquehanna River, it has a beautiful stretch of beach. Picnic, ride bikes, walk, or watch a Senators Baseball game! Take the Riverboat for a dinner cruise, or a Carriage Ride into historic Harrisburg. City Island also lends itself to water sports, like kayaking, jet skiing, and boating.  Bird watchers look to glimpse the many species of birds and water fowl that can be seen by hiking the trails near the lagoon.  Harrisburg has its own airport and is also home to many diverse industries including defense, biotech, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals. 

Harrisburg PA Shopping & Dining

Shopping  abounds all around the city.  Both Colonial Park Mall and Harrisburg Mall off of I-83 feature well-known chain stores and eateries. Other higher-end retailers are located at The Shoppes at Susquehanna Marketplace.  Downtown Harrisburg is a wonderful spot for outdoor dining. Enjoying a meal at the many gourmet restaurants then stick around for some great night life.

Harrisburg PA Housing

There are a variety of Harrisburg homes for sale in demand because of its great location, weather, award winning schools and the thoughtful, painstaking planning the city has taken for its development.  The northern section of Harrisburg, just south of Interstate 81, is comprised of older neighborhoods.   Colonial Park has many new construction developments, both single-family and townhomes.

 Joe, a new round is upon us. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!"

The game is on...Can you go tell my Red Sox...maybe they will show up and play!

 

"Joe...  No! We will not be passing on that advice to those Sox. You got to throw us a bone every now and then!"

Ken & Leslye-you do realize that the World Series will be here sooner than you think. You might just want to jump on that Red Sox band wagon. I tried to get you on that Bruins band wagon way back when, but you got on late and had to sit in the way back seats. So do us all a favor and go jump start our beloved Red Sox!

Joe. You leave me very little choice but to be frank with you. I need someone to root for. Since our beloved Flyers (as you so eloquently put it: F Lyers) didn't cut the mustard, I had to jump on your band wagon. But now I am back, and raring to go!! So, no push from your southern buddies. Go Phillies!
