Clarksville is a booming city with lots of growth and even more promise. You can find anything you want in this city and you don't even have to drive very far to get it! From farmland to downtown, you sure can experience it all! The people in Clarksville are kind and helpful, and they don't mind stopping to chat for a minute, even with a complete stranger. There are walking, biking, and jogging trails as well as the river you can visit, and plenty of parks, schools, businesses, and entertainment options. Clarksville has so many unique residential areas, there really is something for everyone based on affordability and taste. The public transportation is amazing. You can get nearly everywhere via the Clarksville Transit System (CTS), and the bus runs between 6a-8p Mon-Fri and even have some Saturday morning and afternoon runs! I couldn't be happier living here in Clarksville, and I'm so glad to call this place home.

Clarksville is family friendly with great schools and because of the rich local history, plenty of activities to teach the next generation. Add to that, access to the beautiful surroundings and Clarksville is a fascinating place to raise a family.

One example is the Dunbar Cave State Natural Area located at the corner of Dunbar Cave Road and Old Dunbar Cave Road. Here you can find a variety of activities including hiking, picnicking, a fishing lake and an 8 mile long cave. The history of the cave predates any local residents as drawings were found in the cave that are estimated to be more than 1400 years old!
It is my hometown so it obviously has grown on me over the years. Clarskville if finally building up, and I have big hopes for the future of this city. For a while there were very little sources of entertainment, but this is slowly becoming less of a problem. I do feel like the crime rate is increasing, which isn't the best!
