What travelers are saying
- Don't be fooled by the name, this place is an Army history museum, and it rocks! Yes, it has an incredible archival library and a critical task of recording and archiving Amry history. But the trail, the museum, the staff are all top notch. Highly recommend you go!Written November 10, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The number of vendors seems to be declining more each year - especially the Manufacturers Midway. Some of the events remain something we look forward to.Written October 21, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful campus. They've seamlessly blended old and new buildings by using the same gray throughout. The added punches of red in the banners and Adirondack chairs really make for a lovely environment. We recently took one of the college tours and found everyone involved quite friendly. Also very impressed with their dedication to sustainability.Written May 3, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We were surprised to find a beautiful old mansion with great views. It's still in use as an inn and conference center.Written August 13, 2022
- Welcoming, knowledgeable server (Garrett), interesting dining selections, and diverse drink selections made for an enjoyable evening shared with our family, who recommended this spot. It’s a favorite go-to of theirs-easy to understand since it was a all around perfect time.Written December 23, 2022
- This is a great place to spend an hour or more in a museum of local history that you would expect to find in a much larger city.The displays include categories from transportation to furniture to local inventions. Key features are a room devoted to the Carlisle Indian Industrial School and interactive spots for children (and grown-ups!) to get involved. This is a "must visit" when you are downtown. History On High is their excellent gift shop with works by local authors and artists.Written September 5, 2019
- I attended school at the Barracks and it's a great place in US history. The LeTort Spring runs through the base and it adds to the greatness of Carlisle. Practice your bass catch and release in this beautiful place.Written March 4, 2020
- I thought that this was the best "antique" store in the area. Prices slightly higher than other places, but they have a lot of nice stuff. Also, if you are interested in trains, check out RJG trains on the second floor. Street parking was no problem.Written August 1, 2021
- I love the drive alone just to get there. Its winding, beautiful and immersed in the forest. I would definitely go when you can get a tour of the mansion. There is a lot of history inside and outside of the mansion. Plus, several hiking trails that leave and return from the area. Bring your camera! You are going to want to take photos.Written September 4, 2019
- The Carlisle Theatre was purchased and renovated to its early glory by the Carlisle Regional Performing Arts Center, a nonprofit group formed by local citizens. It is a stylish and imposing old theatre and the film offerings and live performances are interesting and electic. I have had the opportunity to participate in some of their live performances, and have been amazed at the talent they draw.Written October 19, 2016
- The shop is small, but every table, shelf & wall offered a wide variety of locally created craft items - both small & large, from the inexpensive to high-end, including jewelry, pottery, Christmas tree ornaments & other such items. Definitely worth a stop.Written December 30, 2019
- We lived a block away from this park for two months and were there almost every day for one reason or another. My husband and I would walk or jog the trail and take our son on his bike. It's a lovely, easy path through farmland and along the creek. You pass by old houses and barns. It's a safe place to get out during the COVID pandemic. We also enjoyed hanging out in the park, watching the baby ducks and goslings. There are picturesque spots for picnics and enough space to social distance. My son and I liked playing Pooh Sticks on the bridge. This is my favorite place in Carlisle, for good reason.Written July 19, 2020
- This place isn't as big as some of the other places in the area, but well worth a stop. They have lots of stuff. Prices vary depending on what you are interested in. The folks who work there were very nice.Written August 1, 2021
- This is a little coop where local vendors rent space to sell their wares. You can find everything from coffee beans and loose-leaf tea to fresh fruits and veggies and homemade dog treats. Local photography, handmade jewelry, pretty rocks (geodes, crystals...), silk scarves, even Tupperware and Avon - this place has it all. You can get a bag of your favorite nuts, freshly-butchered meats, or stock up on local milk, eggs, and cheeses. There's a sub shop; a counter specializing in Vietnamese spring rolls, noodle bowls, and pho; and a kitchen serving hearty, delicious breakfast and lunch all day.
We ate breakfast at Bair's Den Cafe and it was outstanding. I'm very picky about my eggs and most places get them wrong, but they were perfect here. The toast was from their homemade bread, with thick slices of crispy bacon... I'm getting hungry again just talking about it. My meal included pancakes, but they were super busy and forgot about them. I was full anyway, so I told them not to worry about them, and they insisted on refunding me the price of the pancakes. Great food, great service.
I'm moving to the area soon and I feel sure this place will be a regular fixture for me.Written May 9, 2017
- This place is pretty big. Two floors and a basement. Lots of stuff. We spent 2 hours and bought a few things. One of the nicer "antique" places in the area.Written August 1, 2021
