On your next trip to the Pennsylvania capital make sure to employ our Harrisburg car hire services as your main means of transportation through and around town. While Harrisburg isn’t the largest city in the state by far, it is the capital and this is largely due to its historic importance, starting with the Westward Migration, then continuing into the Civil War and then finally during the Industrial Revolution.
The city can be reached by road, rail and air, being served by the Harrisburg Airport which is situated just outside the city so you can have our Harrisburg car rental services have a car ready and waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land.
There are quite a few interesting places to visit in town, such as the State Capitol Building. The style of the building is American Renaissance and was initially envisioned as a “Palace of Art”, it is a masterpiece of architecture and encompasses several artistic designs. The capitol’s dome is modeled after the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and it rises 272 feet off the ground.
There are about four theaters in the city; the Gamut Classic Theatre for instance has its own Shakespeare Festival, or the Theatre Harrisburg which is among the oldest community theatres in the country having been founded in 1926.
Then there’s the National Civil War Museum which is a non-profit educational institution formed to promote the preservation of the information sources and material culture relevant to the American Civil War and its aftermath.
A different type of attraction is the Broad Street Market which is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in the country.
The city also features quite a few open and green spaces, for instance the Reservoir Park which is the larges public park in the city and the Wildwood Lake Park. There’s also the Capital Area Greenbelt which is a twenty mile long green-way which links various neighborhoods, open spaces and parks.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in the city so make sure to employ our Harrisburg car hire services in order to better explore the city and its surroundings.
