What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Harrisburg

I don't like it here at all. I don't feel like it's safe for my kids to play outside, the schools are horrible and the people as well

It's mostly older/old ways people which is nice and there are a few local places that make it favorable.

My neighborhooddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd is kinda noisy but it's ok!!!!!!!!they be on our faces alottttt it's annoying

Nothing is unique about where i live except people stay in their place and mond their business to a certain extent at least but everything is close by or not too far away to get to

i like living here because it is very cheap and affordable and not too many people around in your face

The restaurant are pretty nice and i like that the bus is near by apartments are cheaper and some shopping store are good and near by

All About

Living in Harrisburg, PA

Tucked into a sweeping bend in the mighty Susquehanna River, Harrisburg is one of the country's most beautiful state capitals. As the center of Pennsylvania's political life, it's also a dynamic city. From the heights of the nearby Allegheny Front to the fertile bottomlands along the river, Harrisburg offers great views and plenty of surprises.

Harrisburg Attractions
Although many of Harrisburg's attractions center on its rich history as Pennsylvania's bustling capital, the awe-inspiring Capitol Complex is just one of the city's noteworthy points of interest. Harrisburg hosts numerous fairs and expositions, including the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show and the Harrisburg Classic Auto Show. Meanwhile, Harrisburg's highbrow visitors make a point of visiting noteworthy local institutions like the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts and the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra.

Harrisburg Natural Beauty
Harrisburg's blessed physical location makes it a mecca for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Since the Susquehanna is broad enough to mimic a still lake, it quickly fills with water-skiers, motor-boaters and sailboats during the warm months. Meanwhile, the jogging and biking trails along its waterfront keep the city's residents active and engaged. More adventurous locals prefer to venture into the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains with their backpacks, mountain bikes and climbing equipment.
