Harrisburg is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the United States, and the county seat of Dauphin County. Venture out of the city with trips to Gettysburg (Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center, Gettysburg National Military Park, & more), Philadelphia (Liberty Bell Center, Reading Terminal Market, & more) and Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square). On the 27th (Tue), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. Spend the 28th (Wed) exploring nature at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Civil War Museum, stroll around Fort Hunter Mansion and Park, identify plant and animal life at Wildwood Park, and head off the coast to City Island.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Harrisburg trip planner .

August in Harrisburg sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 64°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
