Pennsylvania’s capitol, Harrisburg is home to nearly 50,000 people. Located on the Susquehanna River, the city offers a wealth of arts, dining, recreational and educational opportunities to visitors and residents. Take in a show or science exhibit at the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. Catch the Harrisburg Symphoy Orchestra at The Forum. Enjoy the vibrant nightlife, attend the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, or spend the day at one of the area’s many parks—both natural spaces and the world-famous Hersheypark. What’s more, Philadelphia is just a short drive away. In 2010, Forbes magazine called Harrisburg the United States’ second best place to raise a family.
