~Harrisburg, Pennsylvania~

The one thing that impressed me about Harrisburg is the Capitol Building. It is one of the oldest and most ornate in the nation. The interior is simply beautiful. It is constructed all in marble, granite and gold. A place fit for kings. The building itself is enough to make me proud to be from Pennsylvania. The city is kept clean and the people are very friendly. I used a library there to send some emails, and I was made to feel welcome. I used a lot of libraries in a lot of states, and public libraries are just that. No one ever asked where I was from or, if I had a library card. Public library systems are one of the most important benefits of a free society.

The oldest metal span bridge in the United States. It was constructed in 1888.
It is closed to vehicular traffic, but you can walk or bike across.
