I've lived in Southern Indiana for 30 years. In general it's a great place to live. It's the epitome of Midwest, as we're friendly, welcoming, and down-to-earth without being backward or lacking diversity in people or ideas.

Clarksville is particularly nice because you get a small-town feel that's only a 10 minute drive to Louisville, KY which offers everything you're looking for in a big city: Art, History, Culture, Restaurants, and bourbon around every corner!

My biggest complaint with this area, and why I've only given it 4 stars is the weather. We have extreme heat and humidity in the summer. Personally, if I sweat when I'm standing still- it's too hot. If you're into that sort of thing this are might be perfect for you.

The area is not always the best depending on what neighborhood you live in! But, most of the time it is pretty quiet. I work in Louisville so the commute time is amazing as there is not much traffic. Clarksville is small but does have good shopping on Veterans and Lewis and Clark. Overall it's not my first choice of places to live but its not terrible.
Throughout the years I've spent growing up in Clarksville, I can say that I've seen quite a lot happen here: both good and bad. Since I represent a member of the Hispanic community, I can say that there's a bit of inclusion in terms of stores and events that help us get involved with the community. However, I would like to see that be a lot more prominent so that we could be recognized a lot more; i.e. having more cultural representation for POC, better resources for schooling, food, and housing, and having safety measures being applied when it comes to police brutality.
