There’s nothing quite like taking a road trip to visit old friends! I recently took a drive to central Pennsylvania to visit friends, enjoy some historic and eclectic nightlife, and see the state capitol.
The day began with a visit to a wonderful restaurant and bar called The Gingerbread Man in downtown Harrisburg. I enjoyed a yummy Cuban sandwich and a crisp beer. After lunch, it was time to head down the street to a wine bar! With lots of local options, it was fun to taste and try the vino of Pennsylvania. I’m always a big fan of trying local fare and drinks when traveling to or visiting new places.
As the day waned, it was time to revitalize ourselves with some coffee. The next stop was a coffee shop called Denim Coffee in Carlisle. I got a warm mocha and we all sat and talked away the late afternoon. Continuing what was soon becoming the food-and-drink tour, we ventured onward to a local favorite – Molly Pitcher Brewing Company. With fun drinks, a cozy space, and the coolest beer taps I’ve ever seen, it was definitely one of my favorite places of the trip.
I drove past the beautiful state capitol building in the early hours of the morning after finishing a few rounds at a fun, eclectic bar (with excellent fried pickles!). It was a wonderful day and night of exploring, trying new things, and catching up with friends!
