Catch the sunrise over Harrisburg’s skyline on a morning walk around the island. At day’s end, look westward for a brilliant sunset fading into the Susquehanna River. For as much as there is to see on Harrisburg City Island, there is even more to do. Catch a ballgame at one of the most beautiful minor league parks in the country. Attend one of the many fairs or festivals hosted on the island. Grab a ticket for a sightseeing riverboat cruise, try your hand at putt-putt on the 18-hole Water Golf course, or just take a stroll to take in the views.
Catch a ball game at FNB Field, home to the Harrisburg Senators. The Senators are the Double-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, so a long list of minor-leaguers-turned-MLB sensations get their start here in Harrisburg. Huge names like Bryce Harper, Steven Strasburg, and Juan Soto played here before heading to the Big Show. Games at FNB Field focus on a fan-friendly experience with tons of cool promotions and Fireworks Fridays. Bring the family and have fun!
The stately red and white Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat is an iconic fixture on the Susquehanna River. “The Pride” is an authentic stern-driven paddle wheeler first launched in 1988. In addition to public sightseeing cruises, The Pride hosts private events and themed, ticketed functions like jazz nights, craft beer cruises, and activities for kids like pirate and princess cruises. Check The Pride’s event calendar for upcoming events.
City Island is a great spot to walk and bike. The island is connected to Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park and the downtown area by a convenient pedestrian bridge. Kayakers can launch from the island’s northern tip, and it’s a great spot for fishing access as well.
