Quality of Life

As the fifth fastest-growing city in the United States, Clarksville has positioned itself as an ideal place to work, live and play. With the great amount of recent economic growth, the community has seen its population increase at an unprecedented rate.

Nestled in the scenic region of Middle Tennessee and strategically located on the Cumberland River. Clarksville is within one day's drive from 76 percent of major U.S. cities - easily accessible from several major interstates and only 40 miles north of the Nashville International Airport (BNA).

Here you'll find metropolitan amenities blended with small-town hospitality and values. Clarksville is a scenic river city that is steeped in history with residents who enjoy modern-day living. Business Week even ranked Clarksville as Tennessee's Best Place to Raise Your Kids.



Part of the charm that makes up this community is the array of attractions that bring downtown alive throughout the year including free annual events like Christmas on the Cumberland, Jammin' in the Alley and Movies In The Park.

Recreation enthusiasts can find plenty of adventure in Clarksville. The Marina at Liberty Park, the Blueways and Greenways are a vital part of available outdoor amenities, giving residents miles of scenic walking, biking, running, kayaking, boating and canoeing options.

Underlying all this rich way of life is an affordable cost of living - about 15% below the national average, according to the ACCRA Cost of Living Index. Best of all you'll find friendly and welcoming people who love calling Clarksville home, and we hope you and your business do too.
