Young Professionals/College Students

Downtown Clarksville is the happening neighborhood for young professionals and college students in Clarksville. Austin Peay University is in the area and so there is a mix of college students, the majority of which live off-campus, and young professionals living in the apartments and condos of the popular blocks downtown. It’s no wonder given the high walkscore for these living options to both downtown work and the bars, restaurants, cafes and theaters within the neighborhood.

Exit 11


One interesting characteristic to neighborhoods in Clarksville is how people refer to them based on the number of the exit off the freeway. Even though many neighborhoods have names locals will often refer to as an example, “Exit 11” which is further south, and is a really nice place to live. It’s almost a small town within the city, with great homes but also a nice commercial district with restaurants and cafes. So if you like a combination of suburban and urban for raising your kiddos check out Exit 11. The farther north you go the more you’ll find less expensive rental and inexpensive housing options. Exit 4 is downtown and where the majority of the commercial scene is but if you start your search think about below exit 4 as the most “suburban” family neighborhoods. Once you get down near Exit 19 you get a rural experience and a longer drive to downtown.
