Harrisburg is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the United States, and the county seat of Dauphin County.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get a sense of history and politics at Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Capitol Complex and then explore the activities along Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area.
