Harrisburg is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the United States, and the county seat of Dauphin County. Your inner history buff will appreciate Little Round Top and Dobbin House Tavern. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum and Old Jail Museum. Explore Harrisburg's surroundings by going to Ephrata Cloister (in Ephrata), Gettysburg (Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Gettysburg Heritage Center, & more) and Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (in Manheim). Pack the 8th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Asa Packer Mansion, examine the collection at No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Historic Downtown Frederick, and admire the natural beauty at Longwood Gardens.
