Teaching Kids good financial habits
Teaching kids the right money habits starts at home, but a new study shows that those conversations may not be happening. We're talking about it with Trae Bodge from Retailmenot.com. http://www.retailmenot.com/
16. On Orange
One of our favorite breakfast spots, especially coupled with a trip to Lancaster’s Central Market on Saturdays, On Orange’s owner Melissa Watro took what was a Lancaster institution, and made her own in September of 2010 with old and new favorites that have folks flocking. We continue to go for the formerly famed Wish You Were Here’s Swedish pancakes and waffles (made with a hearty oatmeal like dough) and the not-for-the-faint-of-heart Indian omelette filled with a tangy spicy pepper relish and sharp cheddar. Also try her sell-out chilaquiles. Just be sure to save room for the homemade cookies or mini muffins that come out with your check.

17. Little Amps
After years of drinking bad coffee on the road with his band mates, Aaron Carlson, his wife Kara Garcia, and a few employees, opened Little Amps Coffee Roasters in October 2011 after returning home to Harrisburg a couple years prior. The name was inspired by the little portable amps the band used to carry.
Folks in the know get 12 ounces of freshly roasted coffee delivered right to their door with their coffee club the day it’s roasted. If you live (or work) within the city limits of Harrisburg, they’ll save you the shipping and deliver via bike (how green!). It doesn’t get much fresher than that.
We loved the “The Cold Jar” which is a shot of espresso shaken with milk, served in a mason jar with a touch of brown sugar and ice.
Little Amps is open Monday thorugh Friday from 6:45am to 2pm and Sundays 8am to 2pm. Plus, enjoy matinee style music every Saturday at 1pm.

18. The Majestic Theatre
Dubbed “the grandest small town theatre in America,” we have to agree the Majestic Theater is pretty swell. Over 80 years ago, it was the largest vaudville and silent film theater in Central Pennsylvania. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower were regular theater go-ers there in the 1950s. Then in 2005, the Majestic was restored so that generations to come could enjoy this slice of American history while enjoying modern day performances and amenities.
1964: The Tribute, a Beatles tribute band, performs August 14. Locals can also
enjoy “Movie Memories” Wednesday nights featuring classic films through August at 7:30pm. Check the website for featured films.
