Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Information
Harrisburg has grown from a modest ferry outpost to a picturesque capital city. A burgeoning centre for the region's art and culture, the community offers all the pleasures of an urban metropolis, while maintaining the warmth and caring associated with South Central Pennsylvania.
Visitors come to Harrisburg to learn a little history, but mostly to relax in the beautiful countryside.
The State Capitol building features a 272-foot dome, patterned after that of St. Peter's in Rome. The Capitol sits near a 68-acre downtown park that offers several museums of natural science and history, including the William Penn Memorial Museum.
Nearby Hershey, Pennsylvania is the home of the Hershey chocolate factory and amusement park.
