A portion of Harrisburg’s Capital Area Greenbelt recreational trail burst into early bloom in mid-March. This section is south of the John Harris Bridge that carries Interstate 83 over the Susquehanna River.
Since before recorded time, the Susquehanna River has shaped the midstate. While its flowing waters continue to support industries, commercial venture and residential communities, its future looks brightest for tourism growth. Chiques Rock Outfitters in Lancaster County is just one success story.
During the past two years, downtown Harrisburg has seen a steady wave of new dining and entertainment concepts open. Expanding organizations such as Harrisburg Young Professionals help build a captive audience for those willing to take a chance. For more on the evolving downtown, see our Nov. 23 edition.
