Destination Carlisle is a non-profit, volunteer merchant organization of downtown Carlisle merchants responsible for this virtual tour guide and such events as Halloweekend and the Downtown Summer Bucket List.
Destination Carlisle, Inc., is an organization of owners, employees, and representatives of small businesses and organizations in the downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania, business district. We are a merchant-led, merchant- focused organization that is taking a direct hand in improving our downtown, increasing our business district's viability, and advocating for ourselves in issues that may affect our success.
Destination Carlisle relies on the expertise, cooperation, and input of our fellow small businesses as well as our customers and neighbors to formulate goals and how to best meet them. We work on fostering a more cohesive and cooperative downtown business community by identifying and creating opportunities for our businesses and organizations to work together, including mentoring new businesses on the challenges facing small businesses. Further, we want to encourage more people, both local and non-local, to discover what makes our downtown community so unique, honoring Carlisle's history while looking forward to where Carlisle is headed. That's what inspired the virtual tour guide you are using right now.
In essence, our motto says it all, "Let our downtown be your downtown." We invite all of you to come downtown and join us on our question.
