32 Restaurants.

From the shores of the Mediterranean to the backroads of the American South, our 32 downtown restaurants celebrate the diverse cuisine of the world.  American, Belgian, Bhutanese, Chinese, English, French, Greek, Himalayan, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Thai, and Vietnamese food in diner to fine dining settings can all be found in downtown Carlisle. 


44 Shops.

From quirky gift shops to galleries and from trendy clothing stores to vintage shops, our 44 retailers form a neighborhood of specialty shops worthy of an afternoon of exploration.  Apparel, art, books, candy, collectibles, eyewear, home decor, jewelry, musical instruments, outdoor gear, toe shoes, wedding dresses, wine, and more await you in shops locally owned by experienced shopkeepers in downtown Carlisle.

One Downtown.

Destination Carlisle is merchant led, merchant focused, and merchant run.  We endeavor to improve the downtown business district, to help build better relationships with the community it serves, and to increase local and non-local tourism through raising awareness of downtown Carlisle.  We also coordinate opportunities for our businesses to work together cooperatively and advocate for them to local government on issues that may affect their success.
