Clarksville is the proud home of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division. This town completely rallies around their military and wrote more celebratory reviews than any other town on Best of the Road. The city has volunteer welcoming patrons for soldiers returning from service and organizations like Bikers Who Care that support the troops. They even have children in a neighborhood color guard who help a veteran conduct a flag raising ceremony every holiday.

The people are so patriotic they host regular appreciation events, have painted murals around town, hang ‘Welcome Home’ signs when troops return, and provide military discounts. Captain and Clark met veterans who still give back and support their neighbors and said, “We were able to see and do so much, but what really stood out to us were the people that we met.”

Visitors should be sure to see Liberty Park, the Clarksville Marina, and the Downtown Market while in town. The Downtown Market is hosted every Saturday during summer and most of fall. Otherwise known as the “farmer’s market,” the event helps support local businesses and promotes healthy eating.

Over summer you can enjoy live outdoor music during Riverfest and anytime you can tour the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center. Parks After Dark is a popular summer program, which offers concerts and “Movies in the Park” screenings.

Clarksville is truly the most patriotic town in the nation. We welcome our soldiers back home with open wide arms, and always look for ways to honor our military men and women. We do an extraordinary job of taking of the families here during long deployments, and have proven time and again through various events that we are generous, community minded, and very patriotic.

We've lived in four military towns and this by far is the best. It's a small hometown feeling where people greet the Soldiers individually. Owners of small business give their time and their services to feed, clothe to the military community. Such a huge sense of pride comes from this town!!
