Guests of our Harrisburg hotels will enjoy a wide array of attractions, museums and performing arts venues, as well as shopping, dining and entertainment options in the Pennsylvania state capital. And with locations throughout the city and nearby Middletown, there are Holiday Inn® hotels in Harrisburg to suit every traveler’s needs.
Harrisburg is an extremely pedestrian friendly city, so if the weather’s nice during your stay in our Harrisburg hotels, forgo public transportation and enjoy a walking tour of the downtown area. Start with the State Capitol Building, which boasts beautiful Italian Renaissance-style architecture and an impressive collection of paintings, murals and sculptures. For more contemporary works, head to the Doshi Gallery at the nearby Susquehanna Art Museum or the Art House Lounge, a funky local artists’ space situated on popular Restaurant Row. You’ll also find bars and dance clubs up and down this 2nd Street strip, perfect for a fun-filled night on the town.
Our Harrisburg hotels also make it easy to enjoy a variety of family friendly activities. Catch an IMAX movie at the Whitaker Center or get your picture taken on a vintage fire truck at the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum. The Gamut Classic Theatre in Strawberry Square hosts seasonal performances and Shakespeare festivals, while a ride on the Pride of the Susquehanna riverboat is sure to please kids and the young at heart. If your Harrisburg hotel stay is long enough, plan a day trip to nearby Hershey. You’ll find Hershey’s Chocolate World and Hersheypark – a mega amusement park that offers thrill rides, live shows, and more – in this famous chocolatier city.
Time your visit to our Harrisburg hotels in the fall to experience the city’s celebrated Kipona Festival or during the Pennsylvania Farm Show, the largest agricultural exhibition in the United States. There’s always something going on!
