I have always been interested in skylines of cities and was wondering about Clarksville. Do they have any high-rises? I haven't been there in years, but I know they have a huge population growth going.

To put it succintly... "No". Being more descriptive, one would have to say that Clarksville has no skyline... I think the tallest building is around 5-6 stories tall. And the city is nestled amid hills in a river valley. So there is no "Ahhh" shot of the downtown are you approach. Clarksville is actually quite spread out, and consists of many homes of people affiliated with the Ft. Campbell Army post. Having said that, I must admit that there is some stunning architecture in the city... as it has a lot of really nice examples of early-20th century architecture. It's actually a pretty city, but it does not have any tall buildings.

I suggest you look on Flickr.com and search for Clarksville pictures. You'll get a good idea from those pictures.

A lot of communities now are on Google maps street view which means you can use the map to locate any street in town and actually see what it looked like when the Google van went through int he last few years. Clarksville is has been covered with streetview.

Use the following link to go to the center of Clarksville and then drag the little yellow man to the street you would like to see and you can look completely around that point in all directions. You can move him to anywhere there is blue highlighting a street to see any part of the town.

Clarksville TN - Google Maps

This has been a wonderful help when trying to find landmarks when I go to a new place and gives you a feel for a place before you ever get there.

I briefly looked around and no tall building was visible. Clarksville does not look like any kind of metropolis,yet.

A high rise to us in Clarksville is the new hospital. All of what - six stories? Maybe one day, but it will be far into the future but that is alright. If we want to see high rises it is a quick trip down I-24 to Nashville.
