Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania, and a city at the heart of many of America’s most iconic events. Founded in 1791, the city and its surrounding area played major roles in the Industrial Revolution, Civil War and Westward Migration. It is also the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and the home to the world-famous chocolate company, Hershey. Though it’s seen economic ups and downs, Harrisburg is currently considered one of the best places in the US to raise a family, and one of the country’s most recession proof areas. Travelers today find a truly charming city, with quaint historic districts, old buildings and lots of reminders of Pennsylvania’s past, as well as modern companies, dining, shopping and recreation.
