Anyone live in Harrisburg?
I might be moving there for a year or so, and am looking for advice on good neighborhoods (preferably near the Capitol). I'd really like to rent a house so that my dog can have a yard.
Um, Harrisburg is a pretty small "city". It is also pretty damned rural once you get past the city limits - you are within 20 minutes of fishing and hunting nirvana. Also hiking, if you want to carry a camera instead.
Yards won't be a problem, it's not urban enough to have blocks of concrete wastelands.
Looks like this is the ghetto.
The Senators play minor league baseball on an island next to downtown H'burg. Nice park. Gettysburg is a short run down 15. Also down 15 is Brothers, a diner- if I'm in the area, I always stop in. Go north and you hit wilderness (and PSU). Poe Paddy State park is pretty amazing. Shoot northwest and you'll hit Allegheny National Forest, which is 800 square miles of forest.
OTOH, if you are looking for a vibrant nightlife, you may find it a bit lacking.
