I get bored so easily, therefore I travel often. Changing scenery often helps my restlessness.
Valentine’s Day weekend was the perfect time to get away. We initially planned a trip to visit multiple abandoned places like Centralia and the abandoned Pennsylvania turnpike. When we reached our first destination, we quickly realized the snow from a few days earlier had ruined all our plans. It would be impossible to get to/see these places in the snow.
I was more than bummed. But the quick thinking of my boyfriend turned the whole day around. We went to Hershey and did the free tour and a chocolate tasting which was so fun. We already had an AirBnB booked in Harrisburg so we headed there next.
I will always recommend AirBnB’s, I’ve never had a bad experience and they are so inexpensive.
We got lunch in Harrisburg at an awesome gallery and brewery called The Millworks (https://millworksharrisburg.com/), would definitely recommend. Then we walked along the waterfront before heading back to our AirBnB to relax.
We got dinner at Rubicon, which was great! The next morning we got breakfast and explored the capitol building a little bit. We then decided to take a stab at seeing the last abandoned place on our list, the old York County Prison.
This place was awesome and creepy. It is easy to get to and to get inside, but it was muddy and I’m a scaredy cat so we didn’t go in. All in all, weekend trips are so much fun and I will be definitely planning more for the future. It is great to be able to explore the world, but sometimes you just need to explore your neighboring states!
