Carlisle is One of Central PA's Best Walkable Locations
Pennsylvania is a state with vast treasures. It is one of the first areas settled as the country formed. It is home to large cities and the birthplace of many of America's favorite food and drinks. The state has many great walkable neighborhoods. Central Pennsylvania has several of Pennsylvania's best charming walkable downtown areas. One of our favorites is Carlisle.
Perhaps this is why the tourism website for the state of Pennsylvania included it on their list of Best Walkable and Shoppable Small Towns in PA. It is number two on the list of great central PA walkable locations.
The Visit PA website describes Carlisle as a place to find many unique shopping treasures in the downtown area including antiques, chocolates, clothing, locally made art, books, and more. There are blocks and blocks of local unique stores to browse. They share about the Whiskey Rebellion restaurant and taking a stroll through the Dickinson College Campus (one of the best free things to do in Carlisle) as well as stopping by for live entertainment at the historic Carlisle Theater.
