Teddy Roosevelt declared that this Italian Renaissance-style building was the handsomest building I ever saw. Indeed, the State Capitol, with its vaulted dome and grand staircase and the murals and painted floors inside, is thing to behold.
Our family chose to tour the PA state capital (as well as other locations in the area) and found it to be very interesting as well as educational. The architecture is amazing and extremely well kept/maintained.
Security was right as expected but very polite and explained everything so the kids knew what was happening and why.

If you have never been to the west shore farmers market you must visit. This is 2 floors in a huge building of delicious homemade homegrown fresh food. From pickles to pizza you can get whatever your looking for. Homemade honey, syrup, candies and meats, even seafood.
You can shop all day and sit down for a bite to eat at dozens of locations. Make sure you bring cash because most stores are cash only and the ATMs on site can run out.
Make sure to visit each store to see rare items. The back deli has some awesome cheeses and meats to choose from. Check it out.

This locally owned retro-style movie theatre is a total "must experience" when near the New Cumberland, PA area! For a little theatre it sure has good sound and a huge screen for an awesome movie experience! You'll just love it! Yes, the movies are not the latest, but it's so inexpensive and such a safe family oriented theatre where one can really relax and enjoy the show! Sunday afternoons they often offer free shows, typically just asking for a donation! They have a nice selection of popcorn, candy and drinks making for an awesome movie theatre experience!! There's a BIG parking lot right across the street so free parking is not an issue! Come check this great little theatre out! Show times are typically Tues.-Sat. at 7PM with a Saturday & Sunday Matinees at 2PM!

I hadn't been here for a long time. I felt that the menu, service, and food had become mediocre. But- I came here with a friend for lunch and was pleasantly surprised! The menu had been overhauled- it is fresh, interesting, and delicious! I had the asparagus, smoked bacon salad with truffle oil dressing- it was wonderful! Salad selections are definitely better, as well as sandwich selections. The service has also improved. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. If you haven't been here- go! You will be impressed!

The only museum in the United States to present a balanced, unbiased look at the Civil War.
It was a great 2hrs. The exhibits were thought provoking. The museum has 2 floors with an elevator. There’s a great view of the area from the museum. The gift shop has a good selection of items. I would definitely go there again.

It's is 60 minutes of AWESOME. Come see what all the buzz is about!
We did Escape Room Live in Lemoyne Sunday August 20, 2017. Son Scott, DIL Amanda, granddaughter age 14, Beth, and me. Had a fun time! Great puzzle: "The Eighties" ... thank goodness we had S&A, in their wheelhouse. We worked together well--mostly.
Highly recommend this Escape Room, and Aiden did a super job as our host, clues when we needed them, but not too many. Took us 62 minutes, but we did it!!

What a wonderful and clean antique place. Well organized and worth the hours and hours you could spend here browsing. We had not anticipated how much time we could spend and had to leave earlier than we wanted. Next time we are in the area this is a must stop and we will put aside the day to explore this treasure.

Experience a thrill like no other! Speed-lovers, be prepared for the newest attraction taking over the Harrisburg, PA area; European style indoor go-karting! Our 40,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility in Cumberland County, PA is the largest completely indoor karting facility in Pennsylvania. This means perfect racing conditions every day. Satisfy your "need for speed" in one of our unique, high speed electric Italian pro-karts.
This place is really good for kids. It has many turns and some straight stretches. They were willing to work with special needs young man. Admission was a little pricey. This facility is like a road course. Plenty of seating area to watch. Operators are very safety minded. They have spotters around the track and if you get too wild they slow you down.

Wildwood Park is located in the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania on the outskirts of downtown Harrisburg. Its 229 acres are a haven for countless species of flora and fauna centered around the 90 acre freshwater wetland. A popular three-mile loop trail encircles the park with side trails and boardwalks for a total of six miles of trails. Its attractive Olewine Nature Center features engaging exhibits on environmental education. Established in 1901, during the City Beautiful Movement, Wildwood was part of a nationwide effort to improve urban life. In 1976, the Dauphin County Commissioners assumed ownership of the property. Now managed by Dauphin County Parks and Recreation Department, Wildwood Park is one of Pennsylvania’s premier centers for environmental studies, educational opportunities and outdoor recreation. It is a cherished retreat for nature lovers, bird watchers and exercise enthusiasts.
I love going to Wildwood park for a quick stroll or a longer walk with my dogs. They enjoy the paths and smells of nature. Usually very quiet with a few other nature lovers on the path.
Benches are spread around the lake for taking a rest or enjoying the view.
Always enjoy the nature Art displays too.

Museum housing more than two million objects associated with or significant to the history and heritage of Pennsylvania.
This is a great cross-section of Pennsylvania's rich history. It reflects our people, our industries, and takes you back to times of both the prosperity and hardships over history. There are wonderful examples of how the past was documented and a glimpse of where we are headed... GREAT VISIT!
