Harrisburg is the capital city with a small-town feel. Hershey is the perfect place for sweet family fun. It's one town, one city, and everything in between that makes our destination unique and gives everyone something to enjoy.
Located in the Susquehanna Valley, Harrisburg is the state capital of Pennsylvania. The city played a pivotal role in the shaping of American history as a primary player in the rail and water transportation industry and as the setting of major Civil War battles. Harrisburg is a hub of family activities, which include cruises along the Susquehanna, arcades, and athletics on City Island.
It is also home to the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, which is the largest indoor agriculture exposition in America attracting more than 400,000 people yearly. In addition, visitors can also attend performances at the Harrisburg Shakespeare Festival, take in a Harrisburg Senators baseball game or visit the Susquehanna Museum of Art.
Families can find endless entertainment among the best family attractions in PA, from coasters and chocolate tastings to learning something new in a museum. Our vineyard and craft brewery scene is hopping with hundreds of flavorful varieties to sample. With our proximity to nature, outdoor enthusiasts can discover miles of hiking and biking trails, and the Susquehanna River welcomes kayakers and boaters to splash and explore.
Hershey has the proud distinction of being the town built on chocolate by The Hershey Company’s founder and notable philanthropist, Milton S. Hershey.
