Harrisburg PA Senior Living
Nestled in the fertile Susquehanna Valley, Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania. It has a wonderful small-town feel, despite having played a pivotal role in the shaping of American history, both as a major link in rail and water transportation and as the setting of major Civil War battles.
The city has grown from a modest ferry outpost on the east bank of the Susquehanna River to a picturesque, vibrant hub of family activities, from boat cruises to outdoor recreation on City Island’s 63 acres. Its annual Pennsylvania Farm Show is the largest indoor agriculture exposition in the U.S.
The heart of downtown Harrisburg is aplenty in historical attractions and culture. Inspired from the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Capitol Building architectural design is a grand work of art. One block away is Restaurant Row, which offers an exciting range of dining opportunities along 2nd Street.
Nearby, you’ll find the Whitaker Center for Science and Arts, which houses hands-on exhibits and spectacular IMAX movies and documentaries. For music and art lovers, the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra performs year-round at The Forum, while the Susquehanna Art Museum hosts world-class exhibitions and educational enrichment.
History buffs, head east to Reservoir Park, over 150 years old, an excellent place to take in some sun, get some exercise or visit the National Civil War Museum. It’s the nation’s largest museum portraying the entire Civil War, from beginning to end, without bias to Union or Confederate causes.
Is travel your passion? Just a hop, skip and jump away is Hershey, “The Sweetest Place on Earth,” where the aroma of the town’s world-famous chocolate lingers in the air. Major metropolises like Baltimore, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City are accessible in only a two-to-three-hour drive.
Harrisburg is a place with small-town sensibilities, perfect for seniors looking to enjoy quiet suburban living just minutes away from rich history and modern conveniences. You can find a home at one of our Holiday Retirement communities.
