Hip at heart, authentic from the start. That's Clarksville -- a vibrant city on the Cumberland River where Southern charm underscores a blend of hip and historic. A 40-minute drive northwest of Nashville along I-24, Clarksville is easily accessible for a fun-filled getaway. This convenient destination is an ideal combination of adventure, education, relaxation and fun! The Cumberland and Red Rivers merge very near where Clarksville was established in 1784. Today, a fully-developed and ever-expanding RiverWalk begins at this juncture and tells Clarksville’s story from that historic point. Plus, it’s the best place around to witness a jaw-dropping river sunset!
