During the 20th century, the major industries in Harrisburg and the surrounding areas of Lancaster, Lebanon and York were steel and agriculture production. Harrisburg, in fact, is at the heart of Pennsylvania’s Dutch country, and the area’s fertile soil has yielded many successful crops and dairy products. Any local friends and family members would appreciate a gift basket delivered to Lancaster full of fresh-from-the-farm juicy red Fuji and crispy green Granny Smith apples. Or, how about some guaranteed fresh, hand dipped strawberries? For chocolate lovers, the Hershey Company’s headquarters are nearby, just ten miles east of Harrisburg. So for dessert, indulge your loved ones with a gourmet Lebanon-York food gift basket, piled high with oven-baked cookies and brownie bites.
Every year, Harrisburg hosts its annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, the largest agricultural exposition in the country. The show features farmers from all over the state, who come to show their animals and take part in various competitions. Locals and tourists flock from all over to view the livestock. Harrisburg also hosts a Cow Parade, where fiberglass cow sculptures are decorated by local artists and displayed around the city, even in parks and train stations. Furthermore, the area is also home to the largest outdoor sports show in America each year, as well as an auto show that displays both classic and contemporary cars from around the nation.
Whether you love cows, cars or chocolate, our Harrisburg gift basket delivery has something sweet to suit you! Try our milk chocolate mixed nuts and berries, our cocoa-infused coffee, or our car and truck shaped cake pops with gooey fudge centers.
In 2010, Forbes rated Harrisburg the second best place in the U.S. to raise a family. But the city has plenty to please adults seeking a child-free night as well.
