Time travel back to the 1700s with a Middletown vacation

Turn back the clocks, or maybe just stop them altogether. Founded in 1755, handsome Middletown is Dauphin County's oldest community, and life here is so laid-back you'll never want to return to the 21st century. A Middletown vacation rental is about strolling streets lined with gorgeous old buildings, taking rides on the old railroad, setting out on excursions to historic locations like Gettysburg and Harrisburg, or gorging on chocolate over at Hershey's. Many of the historic properties are very beautiful, and your Middletown vacation rental might even end up being in one of them.

Things to do

Long mustaches and cutlasses strictly optional

A Middletown vacation rental is the perfect opportunity to load up on some history. Gettysburg and the Civil War Museum in Harrisburg are both within cannon-firing distance, while the Middletown and Hummelstown railroad offers up train rides in old-fashioned cabooses, and themed events including Dillinger-esque train robberies. And if younger travelers aren't feeling so enthusiastic about the history lessons, you've still got an ace up your sleeve, courtesy of Hershey's chocolate. Just a 15-minute drive away is all the candy-related fun little hearts could desire, including chocolate tasting, tours, and a theme park with rides.

Activities

One man's junk is another man's treasure

She's a good-looking ol' town, is Middletown. And it's not just the architecture that's got a vintage charm all of its own. Saturday's Market is a giant flea/farmers' market, and you can easily spend all morning there if you're in the mood. From antiques to fresh food to books to furniture, there's bound to be a bargain here if you can only find it. When you've packed the car out with just about all the 1960s typewriters and ceramic ashtrays you can carry, head for a little R&R at the local winery and brewery, with tastings, food, and live music.

Weather

Regular as your great-uncle's pocket watch

Anywhere as venerable as Middletown is bound to do things by the book, so it should come as no surprise that you'll get all 4 seasons, pretty much as they ought to be. Winter is cold, with heavy snowfalls a distinct possibility, and springs can be very mild. Historically this area was big on agriculture, and no doubt the hot, humid summers and occasional thunderstorms helped to keep those crops growing tall. As for fall, it can still be nice and warm, and can make a lovely time for a Middletown vacation rental.

Natural features

Fantastic fowl and where to find them

Laid in stately fashion along the banks of the Susquehanna river, Middletown is on the western edge of Dauphin County. The terrain's mostly pretty agricultural, with a fair bit of industry dotted around. While all this means it's not exactly the last great wilderness, there are 2 decent-sized conservation areas in the county. Both are dominated by big hardwood trees, and support healthy populations of deer, black bear, and squirrels. Birdwatchers will have their eyes open for turkey, grouse, warblers, and the hawks that migrate across each year.
