Clarksville, TN – From historic sites and antiques to pumpkin patch and breweries, Clarksville is the perfect destination for a fall getaway. Its location along I-24, 40 miles northwest of Nashville, makes this city an ideal fall road trip for families, solo travelers or empty-nesters.
Boyd’s Pumpkin Patch
Nothing screams like a pumpkin patch. Serving the community for nearly four decades, Boyd’s has certainly earned the title of a fall staple in Clarksville. Take the family to choose the perfect pumpkin, find the way through the corn maze, and snap a photo on the Instagram-worthy wagon.
Historic 1800s Collinsville Pioneer Colony
Nestled outside the city limits, this charming property is poised to tell the story of life in Montgomery County during the pioneer days. With authentic period furnishings and artifacts housed in 16 restored log homes and outbuildings on the 40-acre property, one truly feels like stepping back in time when visiting this attraction.
Cross Creek Clays
Nestled in the hills of Palmyra, TN, this tour allows visitors to escape the bustle of the city and enjoy the peaceful, winding roads of the Tennessee countryside. Cross Creek has three 16-station clay courses for all skill levels, a 5-pit indoor practice course, and FITASC Parcours.
Be sure to visit the pro shop and grab a drink in the 7,000 square foot clubhouse. Looking for a place to stay? Overnight accommodation can be made on the property, either in the lodge or in a nearby cabin.
With seven breweries, beer lovers are sure to find something they like along this tasty trail. While the breweries are all distinctly different, they share a passion for the national craft movement and the goal of fostering an appreciation for the meticulous process and myriad flavors of micro-brewing.
From a traditional pub to a modern industrial vibe, from conventional Old World beers to American experimental beers, Clarksville’s craft beer scene has something for everyone.
Patterson Square Farm
Venture to Woodlawn, TN for an autumnal oasis. Pick pumpkins, feed the animals at the petting zoo, take a fun wagon ride, listen to live music, enjoy a food truck and navigate a corn maze, all on one property.
Antique and fall are the perfect pair. With over 20 vintage, antique and second-hand shops, Clarksville is an antique collector’s paradise. Visitors will find everything from quaint antique shops to old warehouses filled with vintage stalls, all filled to the brim with great treasures.
Watch an Austin State University Peay football game
Let’s go! No seriously, that’s the joy of Austin Peay State University (APSU). Clarksville is fortunate that this NCAA Division I institution calls the city home.
