Part of our mission with Destination Carlisle is to make finding information about downtown easier. We have designed a progressive web application (PWA) as an easy-to-use tool for you to use while in downtown Carlisle, and you can download it onto your phone or mobile device just like an app. This is not meant to be an interactive virtual tour guide of sorts. If you're heading downtown, already here, or looking for something new to do while you're with us, use our guide to help you discover our neighborhood. The PWA is a living document, meaning we will continue to expand and edit it moving forward, and you can be a part of that process by sharing your downtown experiences with us, which you can do right through the PWA.
The PWA uses your location to help make suggestions and show you the way based on where you are, so please make sure your location services are turned on for best results. You will also be asked to allow cookies, which make sure you get the best functionality out of our virtual guide.
Some things you can do with our PWA include:
Just a note--a PWA basically functions like an app but isn't stored on your phone in the same way and can be viewed on a PC, laptop, or tablet as well.
And finally, the core of this PWA was developed over a year between June 2019 and August 2020. It's a labor of love made with hundreds of volunteer hours by our president, Stephanie Patterson Gilbert, with help from our secretary, Jennifer Oswald, and advising member, Erin Paup.
