Bustling and full of life, Clarksville has something new to offer around every corner. And while we love downtown, moving beyond the heart of the city means opening yourself up to rustic fun around every turn. Ditch the crowds and slow things down for a full and rich weekend.
Get the family out in the fresh air and having fun at RichEllen Park. Equipped with ball fields, paved walking trails with ADA accessibility, and playground areas, RichEllen Park has everything you need for outdoorsy excitement. Hiking along the wooded creek trails at Clarksville’s Rotary Park transports you to what feels like the middle of the great outdoors!
No matter the season, the area’s agricultural offerings equal unforgettable experiences for the whole family. In the winter months, sign up for a glass-blowing workshop at Erin’s Farm where you can make your own ornament. If you wait until summer, you can pick-your-own fresh blueberries.
A History Lesson in Real-Time
Humor your inner history buff with a trip to Historic Collinsville. A pioneer settlement, Collinsville takes you back to the past by preserving the life, times, and hand-crafted methods of a bygone era. Across 40 scrawling acres 16 restored cabins await filled with artifacts and period furnishings. Take a tour around the grounds at your own pace with a self-guided audio on your phone. After that, make a stop at Port Royal State Historic Park. This historic location was established in 1797 and has seen a lot of action in the shaping of the local area and the state.
Treats and Eats
If you’ve got the urge for a shopping spree, be sure to head over to The Mill. With dozens of local vendors in a rustic setting, The Mill has something for every budget and every gift-giving need. From sweet and savory treats to homemade craft items, clothing, candles, and more, you’ll find something absolutely indulge-worthy!
The outskirts of Clarksville offer plenty of lip-smacking goodness to send you on your way. Craft beer lovers and coffee drinkers come together to find satisfaction at the Thirsty Goat. No matter if you like your drinks spiked, caffeine-charged, or just pleasantly bubbly, there’s a handcrafted beverage waiting for you. While you’re there, be sure to order a pizza to accompany the perfect sip.
Meanwhile, BBQ fans can duke it out over who has the best with places like South of the River BBQ, Shiloh Bar-B-Que, and Excel BBQ.
