Why go to Clarksville?
The Riverwalk lets you experience the river from another vantage
Streets leading to downtown are steep and can be difficult for some cruisers
Friendly locals, a good brewery and many good restaurants and shops
Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
The U.S. dollar is the only accepted currency in Clarksville, but debit and credit cards are accepted by most restaurants, shops and taxi services (inquire if you're in doubt). ATMs are available across the street from McGregor Park and throughout downtown.
Where You're Docked?
Riverships dock at McGregor Park, where a small playground and close quarters to the Cumberland River Riverwalk attracts locals and families. During the Christmas season, the park is transformed into a walking tour of holiday lights, including a large light display shaped like a paddlewheel boat. A parking area by the street provides easy access for land-based tours provided by cruise lines, but also taxis and other transportation options. Downtown proper sits on a bluff on top of the hill, so getting there requires a walk of about 10 minutes.
