PLAN YOUR TRIP TO HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania’s historic Capital City! Inside the Whitaker you’ll find the Harsco Science Center and state-of-the-art IMAX theater. On Friday or Sunday afternoon, you’ll want to make time for a planned “Spiritual Heritage Tour” of Pennsylvania’s recently restored State Capitol Complex – including the State House, Senate, Supreme Court and portions of the Governor’s office suites. The famous and worthwhile National Civil War Museum is only a few minutes from the hotel. Just one block from your hotel, plan a hike, walk or work out along Harrisburg’s Riverwalk, or take a lazy journey downstream on the Pride of the Susquehanna riverboat. In addition to a full menu of celebrated downtown restaurants, other activities are within 30 miles of history – Gettysburg Battlefields, Lancaster County and Amish Country and the Hershey Chocolate factory and museum.
