Valentine’s Day in Harrisburg? Why not?! Grab your person, hit the town, and enjoy a variety of special activities you both will love! *heart emoji*
If you’re on a quest for food and fun, look no further than the Millworks! They are located on Verbeke Street near one of the oldest farmers markets in the country. Millworks offers quality food in their restaurant and hand-crafted beer at their brewery, DELISH! After your meal, feast your eyes on some local art as you peruse their art gallery and shop. (Brownie Points: they serve a KILLER brunch on Sundays between 10am and 2pm.)
Reflect together at the Susquehanna Art Museum for their “Looking In: Portraits and Their Stories” exhibit. This particular show goes up on February 10th and will be available for viewing until May 20th. (Pro Tip: If you’re looking for a date on the cheap side, go to the exhibit on Friday, February 16th between 5pm and 8pm for free admission!)
Located on North Third Street, Midtown Scholar Bookstore is not your ordinary bookstore. This refurbished theater and department store holds 200,000 books along with various events, live performances, and a cafe. (Side note: Midtown Scholar also has 2 million books available online for purchase, including rare books and various signed copies.)
Feel the love and the beat as you head to Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center for dinner, drinks, and some dirty dancing on Valentine’s Day! Los Monstros will be serving up some salsa and merengue music live on stage as you enjoy an energetic and romantic evening together!
Mix up your V-Day by going out with friends and testing your strategy skills in an escape room setting. Outside the Box provides a challenging adventure filled with puzzles and riddles. If you’re in a large group, consider booking an outbreak raceroom to compete against friends in the same challenge!
Make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet!
