There are no major public transportation links to Carlisle. The Greyhound bus stop closed sometime after 2000, and there has not been a train station in the city for many years. The closest public transportation is in Harrisburg. The Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76) and I-81 pass through Carlisle.
There is essentially NO public transportation within Carlisle. Some sections of the downtown are walkable, notably Hanover and High Streets.
The two main streets in Carlisle are Hanover and High Streets. These streets intersect in the middle of town, creating a nice square by the courthouse. Most of the buildings of interest in Carlisle are located along one of these two streets.
The Carlisle Theatre on High Street has regular movies and performances, just like every other small town and city alike in the USA.
But honestly, this place is a real bore. There is hardly anything to do and no reason to visit this place unless you have family and friends there. Avoid it. Either keep driving west to Pittsburg, or keep driving east to Harrisburg.
There is only one first-run bookstore in the entire city, the Whistlestop Bookshop on High Street.
Amy's Thai Cuisine - on High Street
Miseno's Ristorante and Pizzeria - on W High Street
California Café - on W Pomfret Street
Mt. Fuji - really good sushi and for reasonable prices. Ask for the Mt. Fuji (Not on the menu). Located on N Hanover Street.
