Nice place to visit definitely dont recommend living here. Mived here a little over yr ago its bern nightmare nobody seems to be in chargeif u have a problem with city services there is nothing u can do no one to help. We are in mt opinion being shook down by the wastewater. They answer to no one and can do what they want. The sewsge systems havent been updated since built in my neighbor whick was 1960s so if it rains hard streets flood basements flood cant get to work on time but u still pay for it

I like that there are a lot of stores and restaurants in Clarksville. There's a ton of variety, and Louisville is close by if I want to visit family or see the cool stuff there. There are also cool historic sites nearby and there's always something to do.
I love living in Clarksville. It was a nice change of pace from living downtown in Louisville, yet close enough to be there in less than 5 minutes. I am centrally located to EVERYTHING. If I have a long list at the beginning of the day of things I need to get done, I can get it done in record timing because everything is so convenient and close by here. Cost of living is decent. Way more house for your dollar over here. I never have to deal with traffic which is a MAJOR relief.
