Small town with big town feel. Lots of job opportunities. People are very friendly, and housing prices are reasonable. Not to mention an amazing college right in your back yard. If you're looking for something you can't find in town, Russellville is less than 30 minutes away. I love it here!

I love the small town atmosphere of living in Clarksville. There are lots of good local businesses and friendly people. I do hope that Clarksville will create more activities aimed at teenagers or places for teens to hang out. Overall, this was a great town to grow up in!
Clarksville is a small town with very little to do for young people. If you like nature and the outdoors they do have some very nice mountain biking trails and walking trails. The city also has recently built indoor Olympic sized swimming pool and an outdoor water park.
Overall the schools are excellent. I attended Clarksville High and received a top-notch education.Overall, I would recommend living in this town for families with school age children. If you're just visiting, I would recommend only staying for 1-2 days because you'll run out of things to do.
