Looking for ways to spend a day in central Pennsylvania? I’m sharing what to do in Harrisburg, PA!
Growing up, I thought that Harrisburg, PA was so boring. It’s not a glamorous big city. Sure, it’s the capital of the state of Pennsylvania, but it didn’t feel as sexy as popular cities like New York City or Los Angeles. Now that I’ve grown up and have better perspective, I’ve realized that there is something truly special about my hometown city.
