One of our city’s greatest asset is the beautiful Susquehanna River that runs along Front Street. Our downtown is developed on the river’s east side and is nearly a mile long, making Harrisburg the largest city located on the lower part of the river. It flows southeast across South Central Pennsylvania.

If you’ve never walked or driven along this route, you need to. There’s never a dull view!

The best time to come out by the river is right before sunset, whether it’s on Front Street or at the concrete beach on City Island. The sunsets you will see are among the most breathtaking anywhere in the world.
