What Bert Has To Say About Harrisburg-Carlisle Metro Area

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s state capital, features a nondescript, fairly unattractive downtown for a capital city. Amenities include an assortment of historic museums and a nice waterfront strip along the Susquehanna River. Beyond downtown, residential and industrial areas spread across the river into Camp Hill and Mechanicsburg to the west. The economy isn’t spectacular but is projected to grow because of the area’s relatively low cost of doing business and the strategic central location along key surface transportation routes within the eastern United States.
