A visit to Tennessee’s fifth-largest city, brings all the charm and hospitality one would expect from a quintessential southern city. This off-the-beaten-path, but easily accessible community, is 40 minutes northwest of Nashville along I-24.

What can you expect on a group trip? Besides welcoming hospitality and superior customer service, you’ll enjoy scenic drives, a major southern waterway, historic attractions, stunning architecture, a lively performing & visual arts community, palate-pleasing local eateries, boutiques and antiques, art galleries, a winery, distillery, craft breweries, and custom-created special events. These are a few of the amenities and qualities that attract groups from all over the county to Clarksville again and again.

“We pride ourselves on creating a customized and memorable experience for each group that visits,” said Director of Tourism & Sales Frances Manzitto. “We can’t wait to do that for you.”

Let’s get started planning your visit:

Frances Manzitto Director of Tourism Sales

Frances is a veteran sales director with over 30 years in the tourism industry, 20 of which have been with Visit Clarksville. (And, she’s only 39!) She loves creating unique and fun experiences for travelers. Having visited 44 of the 50 states, she has quite a wealth of personal travel experiences to pull from. In fact, she was in an airplane, in the air, when planes were flying into buildings on 9/11. Frances attended Trevecca Nazarene University and has served on the National Tour Association board of directors. She’s had lots of adventures with group tours. Once, she helped a motorcoach back up when a fallen tree blocked the road in a torrential downpour after doing a 3-point turn on a bridge! She went from being an only child to the oldest of six over night! (It’s a story!) She never met a paintbrush she didn’t like. Nearest and dearest to her heart is that she’s a mom of three fabulous girls and married to an Italian stud.
