The people are more than friendly with the small town feel. They have the PeachFest yearly which brings the community together. Several small town businesses that shower the community in love and support for our local schools. Fall Friday nights we become one and cheer on our children at the football games. The summers are filled with Jeep trails and creek swimming. The college campus here is where the family and achievement photos are taken. However it is the only known highway to be "chip and sealed" which causes major damages traveling at highway speeds to other vehicles.

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!
