But, if you want to get out and explore, you’ll have any number of options at your disposal. Here are some of our favorite romantic things to do and see during your next visit!

Hersheypark during the Holidays

Though you may assume it’s more tailored to families, Hersheypark is an excellent spot for all ages and is a fantastic option for your romantic getaway in Pennsylvania. Filled with plenty of shopping and dining options, you can plan out a full-day visit to this dazzling theme park. And, in December, there may be no better spot to get into the Christmas spirit! Enjoy the variety of shows and lose yourselves in the awe-inspiring atmosphere complete with over five million twinkling lights on display. Add in a bit of hot chocolate, and you have the perfect date night. 

Take a Stroll along the Susquehanna River

For a more scenic experience of Harrisburg itself, utilize our complimentary shuttle to Riverfront Park and take in the ambiance along the river via the Capital Area Greenbelt! Parallel to the Susquehanna River, the Greenbelt offers up incredible views and puts you within walking distance of many Downtown Harrisburg establishments. Grab a hot chocolate to bring on your walk at Urban Churn, make a pit stop at any number of breweries, including Millworks and Appalachian Brewing Company, or enjoy an elegant horse-drawn carriage ride on City Island with South Mountain Carriage Company. There are no shortages of romantic things to do in the city!

Relax at The Central Hotel

Though there is more than enough going on in the surrounding area, sometimes you just need a break and prefer to “stay in.” You will not be disappointed at The Central Hotel, as our clean and comfortable accommodations are perfectly suited for a night in. Take advantage of any number of our on-site amenities, including concierge services, the indoor heated swimming pool, or O’Reilly’s Tap Room & Kitchen. You’ll have no need for a winter coat here!
