Beautiful small NE town with four distinct seasons and a tight-knit community. While the town lacks any retail outside of Fern's and Kimball's, there is a terrific spread of restaurants, stores, and entertainment located in each of its five surrounding towns, allowing for easy access within 10-20 minutes. It's one k-8 school and multiple farms (with CSA Programs) create a friendly, welcoming, community-based culture in town, and everyone seems to know everyone.
Carlisle is an overall safe and friendly town. Since it is small, it is easy to go to another place in Carlisle; however, since it is so small, it does not have major grocery stores or shopping areas, so you have to go to the next town, which is a commute of at least 15 minutes.
It very quiet in carlisle. Everyone knows everyone in this community which makes for a really safe and welcoming environment.
