What Bert Has To Say About Clarksville Metro Area


Clarksville, 50 miles from Nashville, is a growing city with a well-preserved small-town feel. The nearby Fort Campbell Military Reservation is an economic mainstay, and there is an assortment of other business activity located in what is considered a healthy business and labor climate. The downtown area is historic and attractive. Austin Peay State University supplies most of the cultural amenities and is the largest non-military employer. Cost of living is among the lowest in Tennessee and so are median home prices.

Growth has brought some new amenities to the area, including a new full-service hospital and a lot of new housing. The area offers a good choice of city, suburban, and rural living environments, and is close enough to Nashville to appeal to some telecommuters and small businesses looking for occasional access to that market.

The city lies in an area of gently rolling hills mostly in agricultural use with some areas of dense deciduous forest. The climate is a mix of continental and subtropical. Summers are long, warm, and humid with frequent thunderstorms. Winters and springs are variable with frequent shifts between cold and mild conditions with periods of rain and storms. Severe cold seldom occurs but snow is not uncommon and can be heavy. Likewise, spring storms can be severe. The first freeze is late October, last is in mid-April.
