100 Things to Do in Central Pennsylvania - #1 Bowling

Today starts my series of 100 things to do in Central Pennsylvania. If you don't live in this area, you'll still get ideas that can transfer to your own part of the world. But I'm hoping to spark our imaginations and to remind us of the great amount of resources right under our noses that can help us create a memorable summer vacation.

My first suggestion is a classic that still provides great fun for the entire family: bowling. Today's bowling alleys are high tech with their automated scoring and disco light shows, but they provide no less fun for kids of all ages. This is perfect fun for those rainy days or days when you need to escape the heat.

I highly recommend ABC East Lanes in Harrisburg for one simple fact: they are smoke-free. This brand new facility has the latest in bowling technology, and all without the lingering cloud of smoke that is present in most bowling alleys.

Sunday thru Thursday.......... 8am - 1am
Friday and Saturday............. 8am - 2am

Monday thru Thursday 8am-5pm $3.25 per game, 5pm - 2am $3.95 per game
