I love clarkesville! My kids have a nice, safe place to play and things to do. Beautiful and quiet neighborhoods, too.
Clarkesville is overall a very nice Southern town. Most people are very nice and genial, and there are many locally-owned shops. One of the largest negatives is the lack of diversity, the majority of Clarkesville citizens are white, protestant, and conservative. However, there is a strong, if small, liberal community and an increasing Hispanic population.
Clarkesville is a nice quite town, and is only 30 minutes away from one of the best locations in Georgia- Helen. We are surrounded by farmers and most of the places here are locally owned. The only thing I truly dislike is that Ingles is the main grocery store here. They are way overpriced and everything else is at least 20 minutes away. Despite that, I still love all of the nature that comes with living in North Georgia.
