Food Scene
This is one of our favorite places. It's reasonably priced, is "farm to table", and has a great local flair. The building houses many artists and you can go look at their studios.

This is fine dining and can be pricey. However, if that's what you're looking for, this is the best in Harrisburg. Beautiful views of the river, specialty glass-blown lighting, great food, and impeccable service. Reservations are recommended and can be booked by calling or using Open Table. Char herself is usually there to meet you and can talk to you about almost anything.

This is another great local spot with a unique menu. It's a small restaurant with a lot of activity. We have never had a bad meal here.

Our favorite restaurant in town. It's Asian fusion, reasonably priced, and a fun environment. Our favorite drinks are the lava lamp and specialty gimlet martini. Favorite foods are the crab cake and filet lo mien. It's a great place to start the evening if you want to go out to the clubs that are close by.

Harrisburg's answer to "Shake Shack" and "In/Out Burger". Tasty burgers, hot dogs, fries, and shakes. Go late in your trip, because you'll be addicted once you go.

A bit more upscale and pricey. The food is always great and the place has a simple decor. If you go, the "Il Tuscano" is the most amazing steak you will eat. It's huge and full of flavor.

Fun restaurant above Mangia Qui. It's a bit more laid back and has tapas (small plates) for sharing. The food is always good and they will often have live entertainment on the weekends.

If you want a traditional bar and grill, this is the place for you. It's fairly inexpensive and the food is decent. The service can be inconsistent and it can get loud, but embrace it and you'll have a great time.

Drinks & Nightlife
This is a very cool local spot. There's a "kitchen" at an entrance on 3rd street. It has decent food that you can order from the bartender and then someone will bring it to your table. If you go downstairs, there's a really unique bar and performance space. There's always something happening there, from Karaoke, to open mic nights, to band performances. Check on the website (http://www.harrisburgarts.com/calendar/) to see what's going on the night you're interested in going. Seeing the strange art throughout the space by itself is worthy of stopping by for a drink.

This is a unique experience. Setup like a speakeasy, you will need a password to get in. You can find it on their facebook page or ask me for it. Once inside, it's a fun club with a dance floor and nice bar.

This is our favorite bar in town. It's a piano bar with live music pretty much every night. The bartenders are friendly (tell Trent we said hello if you go) and the drinks are strong. This is also a restaurant, but the food is just okay.

This is our favorite gay bar in Harrisburg. It's non-smoking (the others are not) and has a great rooftop bar. It's kind of dead sometimes, but if the weather's nice the rooftop has great views of the capital.

During the summer, this is the place to be. It's an outdoor bar and is usually packed. Get there early and grab one of the cabanas in the back and the wait staff will come to take your orders.

You can't come to Harrisburg without walking on the beautiful river-walk. If you leave the house, just turn right on Hamilton and the river is a few blocks down.

If you want to see Gettysburg, I suggest this is the best place to start. It's in the center of one of the battlefields and offers multiple types of tours.

If you want to have a grocery shopping experience, look no further. The place is huge with an amazing selection of meats and cheeses. It also has a huge selection of prepared food that you can take home with you or eat there in their large cafeteria style eatery. This place is about 20 minutes aware from the house. If you go, don't get lost inside.
