Take a fascinating walk through the historic Midtown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, guided by this compelling in-app audio tour! You will start your journey at the majestic Capitol building, an architectural masterpiece that boasts a stunning dome and impressive artwork. As you come closer to St. Patrick's Cathedral, marvel at its façade reflecting the glory of the Church. Then, you will have the chance to visit Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center, which serves as an excellent example of Harrisburg's reinvention of itself. You will also see the 150-year-old Broad Street Market, where you can try and buy almost any food you can imagine. As you continue your walk, you will pass by a former mill house that is now the home for more than 20 artists, a locally sourced restaurant, and an outdoor beer garden. After that, you may get lost among the bookshelves in the famous Midtown Scholar Bookstore. Harrisburg has a single art museum, and you will admire this very solid-looking former bank building. You will also unveil the tangled destiny of the Midtown Cinema, which was abandoned and brought back to life several times. Our tour ends in Riverfront Park, which stretches the length of Harrisburg along the Susquehanna River. Take a stroll in this spacious park and find its hidden gems – three remarkable statues you will learn about from this tour. Enjoy your walk and feel the energy of this dynamic city!
