There are many great hole-in-the-wall type businesses in Clarksville that are owned by locals that make Clarksville an interesting place. There are high respects for military members, as it is also a military town due to the location of Fort Campbell Army base! Plenty of parks and trails to keep you busy outdoors, and many different types of indoor activities, like laser tag and mini golf, if you're an indoors type of person! We also have many art galleries and the Roxy that put on amazing shows. I would definitely recommend Clarksville as a place for people to visit.

Clarksville is a small city in Tennessee. The military sent me here for my first term and I liked it. Comparing to Hawai'i (my previous home of record), you will definitely save a lot of money in Clarksville! This city is only a 20-minute drive from the Fort Campbell Military Base. It offers affordable gas, apartments, houses, and a variety of foods. We also have some bars and two small clubs. Since it is close to a military base and a university, most of the customers are college students and Soldiers. If you need something bigger and louder, Nashville Broadway is only a 50-minute drive. Clarksville has family friendly centers like the arcade, movie theaters, shopping centers, parks, and etc.
Clarksville, Tennessee has been my home since I was eight years old. My family moved here in 08' when my father was stationed at Ft.Campbell, KY. I graduated from Northeast Elementary, Middle, and Highschool, the CMCSS is what I appreciated best about Clarksville. It was because of the amazing athletic programs that I partook in from my 6th grade year to my graduating year that allowed me to achieve an athletic scholarship and because of the relationships I'd built with my teachers that allowed me to achieve an academic scholarship. Tennessee is a beautiful state with caring residents and Clarksvillle, Tennessee is one heck of a place to grow up!
