From natural beauty and worldly cuisines to craft culture and historic preservation, Clarksville is a must-visit destination. Positioned along I-24 about 40 minutes northwest of Nashville, this thriving city on the Cumberland River makes a convenient road trip for many Americans.

So, whether you’re seeking a new-to-you family adventure, a solo jaunt, a romantic weekend, or themed girls or guys excursion, you’ll find plenty of enticements to customize an escape to Clarksville.


In a city with two rivers and 650 miles of navigable waterways, water recreation is abundant (and jaw-dropping Cumberland River sunsets are spectacular too!) Kayaking and canoeing outfitters offer outings from 2-14 miles giving both the skilled and the novice a fun and memorable adventure.

Miles of hiking in 32 state and local parks, a 9.3-mile greenway, and an extensive RiverWalk and connecting urban trail system give walkers and bikers a plethora of options.

Part of a 144-acre state park, Dunbar Cave boasts a comfortable 58 degrees year-round. One of the unique features of the cave is Mississippian native American iconography, dating from approximately 1350 AD. Catch guided cave tours May – October.

Golf, mountain biking, rock climbing, and disc golf are also pleasant activities during all four distinctly beautiful seasons.


The influence of the Fort Campbell Army Post, Austin Peay State University, and international industries give Clarksville’s food scene a surprisingly global flair. Enjoy authentic Korean, German breads, French, Italian, Mexican, or relish the large portions of traditional Southern fare like catfish and BBQ.

Libation connoisseur? You won’t lack for liquid refreshment among the craft options at Old Glory Distillery, six (and counting) breweries, and the long-established Beachaven Vineyards & Winery.


Clarksville’s affordability also helps rate us high for families. With indoor activities like a trampoline park, blacklight mini-golf, high-speed go-karts, bubble cave, and laser tag, you’ll find no shortage of activities all the kiddos will enjoy.
