* The State Museum of Pennsylvania is located in the heart of the city. General admission is $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for children. Located within the museum is the Planetarium which is only open at specific certain times and for an additional admission price.
* The John Harris-Simon Cameron Mansion is open for tours to the public during specific days and times of the week. This historic landmark in Harrisburg was built in 1766 by the founder of Harrisburg, John Harris, Jr.
* The Wildwood Lake Park is located in the northern area of the city and is 100% free to enjoy! Walk the trails and boardwalk around the lake and take in the beautiful scenery! You will see various species of birds, ducks and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
* Take a walk along the Susquehanna River! There are walking paths/trails alongside the Harrisburg side of the river. You can go for a walk, jog or workout along many of the physical fitness stations located alongside the walking/jogging paths. If walking isn't your thing, find a bench to sit on and just take in the sights and sounds of the beautiful Susquehanna River.
