Harrisburg is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the United States, and the county seat of Dauphin County. Get out of town with these interesting Harrisburg side-trips: Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square), Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library (in Winterthur) and Gettysburg (Victorian Photography Studio, Eisenhower National Historic Site, &more). Pack the 25th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. On the 30th (Wed), spend a day delving into the history of Antietam National Battlefield. And it doesn't end there: get a sense of history and politics at Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Capitol Complex, find something for the whole family at Knoebels Amusement Resort, see where the action happens at PPL Center, and take in nature's colorful creations at Hershey Gardens.
