Schools are great, lots of new homes being built, rather expensive. Local shopping is nil, you can get groceries at Lowe's Foods and Bloom, you can rent a movie at Hollywood, you can get a hair cut, tan and very good Chinese food. If you want fast food there's enough of that. As for any other shopping you've got to go to Concord, University or wherever, rather long trip. Don't look for a local IHOP, bookstore, clothing store of any kind, pet store, toy store, major hardware store.
People are great & so is the weather so I'm happy I'm here but hate the long trips for shopping. Good news, there will be a new mall soon, a lot closer to Harrisburg.

I have been in Harrisburg since last July and love the town. It is quiet and everything I need is close by. I am wondering where the new mall will be located at.

i grew up in harrisburg, moving there in 1961. It was a great town until around 1975. When all the northerners with their rudeness started moving in , i decided to get out and you couldn't get me back there. I am very happy in Midland and will stay here until i die.

Ignore comments 5 & 6 as they do not reflect the majority of personalities found in our area. The Harrisburg area is the place to raise a family and filled with many wonderful, thoughtful people. Our schools are fantastic because the teachers care and there is an incredible public involvement. We have a small town appeal with access to all the amenities of the big cities. If you want to be part of a close, caring community please come visit or stay. We welcome any positive addition to our area.
