The Capitol District, Shipoke District, and Midtown offer some of PA's finest architecture. The Capitol building is worth a trip from anywhere; it is a fine example of neoclassical stylism combined with Baroque and renaissance revival elements.
Downtown looks like a miniature version of Chicago or Philly, with an impressive skyline for only having 50,000 residents. Harrisburg features fine dining, good and diverse bars, casual restaurants, three hookah bars, and a beautiful river walk.
City Island, Harrisburg's Navy Pier, is the "Playground for the Whole Family" while the cities host of museums and festivals will keep a visitor of any taste busy.
The biggest little metropolis in the US.
