Harrisburg is a state capital with flare

Harrisburg, the leading city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, has long been one America's truly fascinating state capitals. Aside from the landmark buildings, it's steeped in Civil War history, and comes with acclaimed military museums to prove it. It's also just on the cusp of beautiful Appalachia, which means wooded hills and misty ridges for the walkers. And that's not even mentioning the sweeter delights of Hersheypark, where the twisting rollercoasters and splashing slides are all in the name of America's favorite chocolate. Harrisburg vacation rentals are your ticket to all that and more…

Things to do

Capitol buildings and chocolate in Harrisburg

No visit to Harrisburg could possibly be complete without at visit to the glorious State Capitol Building, which looms above the Susquehanna River with its majestic domes and facades for all to see. From there, be sure to break out to Hersheypark, where the whole family can screech on the rollercoasters and ride the carousels while munching on chocolate. The famous Susquehanna Art Museum is also not to be missed, especially on account of its world-famous array of touring exhibits showcasing everything from the avant-garde to urban street art.

Activities

Harrisburg offers state history and hills

Start your visit to Harrisburg with a guided tour of the glorious State Capitol, where the gilded domes and Renaissance architecture is surely enough to make you gasp. Art walks and riverside parks occur all down the meanders of the Susquehanna River, while the American MusicFest erupts on the 4th July, and Pennsylvania's largest LGBT Pride puts the party into overdrive come midsummer. Excursions to totemic sights like Gettysburg and the Amish farms of Lancaster are also possible, and the rising peaks of Appalachia and the Blue Mountain beckon anyone who's eager to hit the American trails.

Weather

Getting hot in Harrisburg

If you're eager to ride the lazy rivers of Hersheypark and wonder up at the Pennsylvania State Capitol without shivering, then be certain to book your Harrisburg vacation rentals for the summer months between May and August. That's when the weather here is at its best – think long, sunny, dry days with temperatures in the high 70s to mid-80s. If you want to hold off until the main holidays are over, then fall – in September and October - is also a beautiful time to visit Appalachia – think forests that change color and crisp fresh air.

Natural features

Harrisburg hides under the Blue Mountain

Pull on the overcoats and make for the Blue Mountain if you're eager to join the iconic Appalachian Trail in Harrisburg. Set between rising and falling peaks, it's one of the most famous in America, surrounded by red maple, oak, and chestnut forests where fox squirrels and eastern wolves stalk the undergrowth. A taster of all that can be found close to the western edge of the city, where Harrisburg vacation rentals pepper the fringes of the Michaux State Forest. Head there for glistening mountain lakes, mountain biking routes, and dense woodlands.
