I love to eat...who doesn't? In the Central Pa area, there are so many great places to dine, from casual to fine dining and everything in between! It can be hard to narrow down where to go.

Let's dive into some of my favorite restaurants in Central never know, maybe you'll find a new favorite yourself.

Not far from our community, The Estates at Spring View, there are an abundance of choices, but my personal favorite is El Sol Cantina, just up the Carlisle Pike to Market St, Camp Hill. If you want Mexican food, this is definitely a great choice. The food is consistent and fantastic, with a lot of options. I've yet to find a margarita that rivals theirs. I highly recommend giving this place a shot.

If you are looking for a good steak, a classic spot is The Glass Lounge in Harrisburg, known for its steaks and believe it or not, its signature pile of carrots on its salads. If you've been there, you know what I'm talking about. The Glass Lounge also offers a variety of seafood options from jumbo shrimp to crab cakes. And don't get me started on the desserts - my favorite? Marie's homemade peanut butter pie.

I love, love, love Italian food. When in Hershey I tend to choose Fenicci's of Hershey, where I get their famous upside-down pizza, which was the first pizza ever introduced in Hershey in 1947. They also have traditional pasta dishes that don't disappoint. This eatery also features local musical artists every Friday and Saturday night.

Not far from our communities, Morgan's Crossing, Dickinson Place and our newest community, Cumberland Preserve (opening for sales February 20), in Carlisle, I recommend Rustic Tavern. And it is just that - rustic, with a touch of fine dining. Here you will find pasta, seafood and steaks, with a wide variety of ingredients that made from local meat and produce resources. Rustic Tavern has been a staple in Carlisle for 20 years.

If you are looking for something a bit more upscale, also in Carlisle you will find the popular One13 Social, in the heart of the downtown. They offer everything from small plates to sandwiches and entrees featuring chicken, steak and seafood. They also have an extensive selection of wine, beer and cocktails for that perfect nightcap.

The Central PA area offers so many more wonderful eateries than my favorite places, which is just a part of what makes it such a great area to live in!
