This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Harrisburg retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Situated along the Susquehanna River in South Central Pennsylvania, Harrisburg is the commonwealth’s capital city with a history rooted in steel, the railroad, and other key trades of the Industrial Revolution. While it’s often upstaged by Pennsylvania’s major metro areas to the east and west, Harrisburg has remained steady over the decades and continues to be a top-ranked destination for families — largely thanks to a robust economy held up by government employers and multinational companies like Hershey.

Downtown Harrisburg is the heart of the city, home to popular sites like the Pennsylvania State Capitol, the State Museum of Pennsylvania, the shopping complex Strawberry Square, the Susquehanna Art Museum, and the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. A couple miles east of downtown in Reservoir Park is the National Civil War Museum, where galleries and exhibits tell the entire history of the “War Between the States” through countless artifacts, photographs, and dioramas.

Given the natural beauty of the Susquehanna Valley, Harrisburg has no shortage of outdoor recreational activities. City Island sits in the middle of the Susquehanna River near downtown Harrisburg and features a sports complex, an old-fashioned miniature railroad and carousel, a steamboat, and other attractions for all ages. In Harrisburg’s Uptown neighborhood, the Japanese bridge and Renaissance-inspired gardens surrounding Italian Lake draw in photographers, concertgoers, and wedding parties during the city’s warmer months. On the north end of town, the expansive Wildwood Park covers more than 200 acres and includes a nature center, a large lake, miles of trails, and raised boardwalks through forests and fields.

Transportation

Transportation in Harrisburg is available via Capital Area Transit (CAT), the public transit system serving Harrisburg and surrounding cities. CAT offers bus routes with stops throughout the city, along with special services for seniors such as a Senior Free Fare Program, Paratransit, a Senior Shared Ride program, and a Persons with Disabilities (PWD) program for door-to-door transportation.
