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 a picturesque city comfortably nestled against the Tennessee/Kentucky state line and incorporated in 1785; Clarksville has had a very long connection to the military and war. In 1941 Fort Campbell Army Base (originally called Camp Campbell) was completed and opened just before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Fort Campbell is home of the 101st Airborne Division, the only Air Assault Division in the world. We are also the home of two prestigious Special Operations Command units, the 5th Special Forces Group and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Additionally, we are the home to the 86th Combat Support Hospital, the 716th MP Battalion, and sizable Medical and Dental activities. Our Army installation supports active and reserve component units, Army civilians, Army Families, retirees and veterans. There are over 30,000 soldiers attached to the military installation that are the Army’s “most deployed” contingency forces. The men and women of Fort Campbell and their families are more than protectors of our country; they are our friends, neighbors, and families. We celebrate service and sacrifice with annual Veteran’s Day Parade and an annual “Warrior Week”. Warrior Week, which will be celebrated this year on June 20-24, is week-long celebration that honors Fort Campbell Soldiers and their families. Every year the Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee in partnership with the community and businesses hold a week-long celebration with dozens of events all designed to celebrate our military. The Chamber also supports Operation Eagle’s Nest. Family members of Fort Campbell soldiers continue to experience an expanding dimension of self-sacrifice. Operation Eagles Nest helps with those extraordinary needs during these difficult times. The message to the soldiers is “You can feel relieved because we will care for your families until you return from helping America fight terrorism.”
