Renting a Cheap Apartment in Harrisburg

Pennsylvania’s state capital, Harrisburg has been named one of the best places to raise a family (Forbes) and a recession-proof community (The Daily Beast). Harrisburg has been in the news lately due to its city council’s decision to file for bankruptcy. Harrisburg is also the home of Three Mile Island, a nuclear power plant that suffered a meltdown in 1979. Despite these challenges, Harrisburg is known as a government and service center for the greater Pennsylvania area. Downtown Harrisburg is a popular place to listen to jazz and enjoy many nightlife options. The city is located along the Susquehanna River and has a dozen bridges that span the river. The city’s greenbelt and Riverfront Park make Harrisburg a pastoral place to live despite being a large city.
