    I've lived in Clarksville since 1996 and many various years before that. I've seen it grow from 30,000 people to the 155,000 we have today. I've never seen a city grow so gracefully. Yes, there are a ton of growing pains, especially where traffic is concerned. Real estate is the best kept secret in Clarksville. You can simply buy more house for less money than practically any other big city in the country. Also, there are many jobs here, and though it's a bit manufacturing heavy currentyly, there are more and more white-colar jobs coming in too.

    Overall, the county is simply a county. There aren't any exclusives that can be gained from being located here as I can see, at least. The only worthy comment that should be said is that the school system is very uncooperative with families. A good friend of mine had their highschool journey ruined because the school staff doubted her abilities, which I find simply counterintuitive with the caring attitude they display.
    It has been an experience. I have enjoyed this quiet, peaceful,neighborhood that I live in. I have learned alot since I have been a resident here in Clarksville especially about the Southern hospitality. Most of the people here are very friendly and down to earth people thT care for others. I have had the pleasure of being able to call this home and to experience the beauty of this town. I am grateful for this place. I attend Austin Peay State University as a first time college student.
