Family Fun in the City

Harrisburg has unique family entertainment and attractions that you just won’t find anywhere else. Visit City Island to play Water Golf or catch a cruise around the Susquehanna River aboard one of America’s last remaining paddle-wheel riverboats, the Pride of the Susquehanna. Get up close and personal as you cheer on Harrisburg’s sports teams and enjoy watching the kids have a blast with all the interactive game-day experiences. Throughout the year, check our events calendar for kid-focused entertainment and special activities. The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the Whitaker Center also feature many interesting and changing exhibits that offer kids hands-on learning…that is actually fun! Fairy tales and fables come to life at the Popcorn Hat Players, kid friendly theatre that parents will love too!

Urban Outdoor Adventures Await!

Get outdoorsy and get your adrenaline pumping while enjoying the natural beauty of Harrisburg. Run, bike or walk the riverfront paths along the Susquehanna River, traverse the iconic Walnut Street walking bridge, and check out the beautiful gardens of Italian Lake Park. Take your adventure a step further on the wooded trails and pathways of Wildwood Park. The Wildwood Nature Center is also a great resource for identifying the native plants and animals you may see in your travels.
