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 the perfect 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! Our enviable climate makes outdoor activities pleasant all year around. Golf, fishing, road and trail biking, and walking or hiking tours along our Greenway or trails are enjoyed during all four distinctly beautiful seasons.

Interested in arts and music? Our artistic repertoire ranges from world-class performance halls and art exhibits to all genres of homegrown music. Love to shop? Explore our multitude of antique stores, local one-of-a-kind boutiques, or calm your craving with the well-known department stores you love. The food scene? You'll find tasty ethnic offerings from around the globe, but of course, our options for down-home southern-style catfish and BBQ are also favorites!

Time for more? Attractions that make Clarksville distinctive like the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center and Beachaven Vineyards & Winery will round out a memorable stay.
