Details About Carlisle

As a hub of commerce and tourism, Carlisle, located in South Central Pennsylvania, is part of the Harrisburg-Hershey-Lancaster-York-Gettysburg Metro area. With its close proximity to the PA Turnpike and I-81, Carlisle is a convenient day trip from New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington D.C. Higher learning is in the forefront of this Preserve America Town, as it is home to Dickinson College, Penn State Dickinson Law and the Army War College. Only a short drive from many other colleges and universities, as well as military bases, museums, national history parks, theme parks and the Pennsylvania State Capital, there are many reasons to spend a few days (or more!) in Carlisle.
