Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike: End boredom with part 3 of an audio drive

This self-guided GPS audio tour is Part 3 of a four-part eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike series that eliminates highway boredom. It tells incredible prehistoric tales of ancient Indians who once walked this trail and the dramas that unfolded as Indians and European settlers collide. <br><br>This part of the series begins at the Sideling Hill travel plaza. It continues over and under wilderness ridges before levelling off and crossing the broad Susquehanna River Valley. By the time you reach the end at the Highspire travel plaza, you also will have reached a new understanding about life here centuries ago.<br><br>We'll hear the story of Tree Worm and his controlling mother-in-law. We'll learn why a tribe was called the Hemp People. Do you like Indian Summers? The people who coined the term absolutely dreaded them. I'll tell you why. We'll learn to speak a little Seneca, and get the story on a boarding school that served as the model for turning Indians into "true civilized Americans."

The city tries to make this location something more than it is. The walking bridge, from the island to the city, is unique. The walking bridge from the island to Wormleysburg, has been washed out for years. The paddle boat is docked here and is a unique experience however, has limits as the river is shallow and the boat is very small. At the end of the day this is simply the location of the baseball stadium and its parking lot.

City island is an easy walk from downtown over a bridge. The island is in the middle of the Susquehanna river. The Senators, Harrisburg's AA Baseball team, have an excellent stadium in the middle of the island and although we were there after baseball season, our son confirmed the games are excellent in the summer months. The island also hosts other events, although not during our visit in November. Definitely check the calendar. Also saw lots of paddle boats and party boats docked for the winter, which can be rented in the summer.

We took kids on our mission trip to City Island for a "night out." It is a fun place to go. we treated them to ice cream and putt-putt golf. There was a lot of life on the island as there were volleyball games going on as well. I recommend visiting it.
