If your moving truck rental has a Harrisburg destination, you'll find the city located on the banks of the Susquehanna River in south-central Pennsylvania, about 100 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Harrisburg was incorporated in 1791 and became the state's capital in 1812.
You're joining a population of about 50,000 residents in this city that blossomed in the 19th Century as both a steel and iron manufacturing center and as a railroad hub. Today, Harrisburg is home to thousands of diverse companies including several national corporations either headquartered in the area or with a substantial local presence. From healthcare to manufacturing to biotech to government (federal, state and local), you'll find it all in Harrisburg.
Speaking of government, Harrisburg is also where you'll find the Pennsylvania state government's gorgeous capitol building. Modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, this Italian Renaissance structure—completed in 1906—has an impressive 272-foot dome. About 100,000 tourists visit the capitol each year.
Harrisburg's neighborhoods are also worth touring. They include Uptown, Midtown, Shipoke, Riverfront Park and Bellevue Park. There's also Hardscrabble, East Harrisburg, Camp Curtin, Deer Path Woods and The Capitol District. Complementing the city's neighborhoods are several picturesque parks including Reservoir Park, City Island and Beach, Italian Lake and Wildwood Lake Park. Then there's the Capital Area Greenbelt—a 20-mile-long greenway for biking, hiking and walking that links many of Harrisburg's neighborhoods, parks and open spaces. And if that doesn't satisfy your urge to move about and explore, the world famous Appalachian Trail is close by.
Other popular Harrisburg attractions that you'll want to see—or see at least once more if you're moving from the area—include the National Civil War Museum, the Dauphin County Veteran's Memorial Obelisk, Fort Hunter Mansion and Park, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania. You also shouldn't miss the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, the John Harris-Simon Cameron Mansion, Whitaker Center, the Fire Museum of Greater Harrisburg and Harrisburg Cemetery.
