Hop on the bus for a private tour of Historic Harrisburg. Ride through the lovely tree-lined streets while our knowledgeable guide narrates the history, origin, and development of Harrisburg. We’ll view charming early neighborhoods, historic homes along Governor’s Row, and the Capital Complex before disembarking for a guided tour of the State Capitol building, a “Palace of Art” that Theodore Roosevelt called “the handsomest building I ever saw.” Lunch will be on your own in the Capitol cafeteria. Then we’ll head to the Governor’s Residence overlooking the Susquehanna River for a guided tour. We’ll conclude with a guided visit to the John Harris & Simon Cameron Colonial Mansion, which was built in 1763 and was home to John Harris, Jr., one of the founders of Harrisburg. Over time, it’s been renovated and added to repeatedly, and the many rooms reflect the fashions, furnishings, and objects of the Colonial, Victorian, and Art Deco periods.
Cost Includes transportation, entrance fees, guided tours, snacks, and tips.
