Attraction details
Reviewed 5 September 2012

Harrisburg is weathering hard financiial times, but the Kipona festival on Labor Day weekend is great. The fireworks display was awesome and the food and art booths and entertainment are first class for a festival of this nature

Downtown is nice, a bunch of Restaurants & Bars to Hang in. They are all pretty nice. Sometimes it gets a little crowded, but it is downtown. You kind of expect it

There are some interesting bistros downtown, but (for me anyway) the crime rate would keep me away. The mayor actually closed one street to all but local residents recently because of the volume of crime. My advice is stay away and head to the outlying areas.

This area has a history going back over 150 years--the city has done a good job with historical information on markers throughout the downtown area. There are some good hotels and restaurants, as well as a nice shopping center. There are some run down areas, but also some lovely streets and homes, especially State Street from the Capitol to the river. Front Street along the river is one of the prettiest streets in the US with some wonderful mansions. There are also trails in the park along the river.

Please be careful when going out at night. There are many homeless people, aggressive pan handlers and prostitutes.
