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 home of the 101st and always welcomes our soldiers
