Make your way to downtown Clarksville for a festive Christmas experience; full of lights, entertainment and delicious food. Many of the local restaurants and stores are decked out with Christmas trees, lights and garland this time of year. Once the sun sets, the Christmas lights turn on. Up and down Franklin St. and Strawberry Alley the streets are lined with Christmas lights. After shopping or grabbing dinner, head down Franklin St. where Trinity Episcopal is located and see their famous red doors, decorated with wreaths and the Christmas spirit. 

Head down to the Riverwalk and take a stroll along the Cumberland river among one million Christmas lights. Be sure to stop underneath the Christmas light tunnel for that picture-perfect look.

The Clarksville Speedway has their annual drive-thru Christmas light show up. With ticket sales specials every week, drive thru three million lights as you start a new family tradition. Located at 1600 Needmore Rd, the Christmas Light Drive-Thru opens at dark and lasts until 9:00pm Sunday-Thursday and 10:00pm Friday-Saturday.

Smith Trahern’s annual Trees of Christmas goes through the 19 of December.  They have 20 different Christmas trees throughout the historic mansion. Take a tour while you decide which tree that you’re going to have your picture taken in front of.

Heading out of downtown on Madison St you can stop by and see the large CEMC Christmas Tree lights and grab a selfie. These lights have shone over Clarksville for years and has become a staple for the holiday season.
