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."

I try to walk here whenever I get to City Island. Both the Market Street bridge and Walnut Street bridge connect Riverfront Park to City Island. It offers great views of both the river and City Island. The Capital Complex is also just a short walk from Riverfront.

Had a wonderful time. A nice walkway to walk along the river. The grounds are well kept. If you go take your lawn chairs, blanket and your cooler with snacks.

They're making the best of the space between the town and the river, but it honestly isn't really a park - think more of an urban 'trail'. It benefits from the pleasant aesthetic of the river and some historic homes along the street, with plenty of signs to let you know what you're looking at. However, I'd say this space is best suited for runs and bike rides. They've definitely invested in it as a physical recreation space, with workout stations along the path. It's pleasant and flat and definitely an ideal place to go on a run if you're visiting Harrisburg.

Hello! We traveled east and stayed at a beautiful Airbnb on the historic North street in Harrisburg. Just a short walking distance from the riverfront, we couldn't have been happier. We attended the fireworks here and enjoyed all the yummy food and wines. We met some nice couples and enjoyed a beautiful fireworks display. Will definitely return to this quaint capital city! Loved our stay!
