A Clarksville timeshare in this part of Missouri will open up a world of small-town America that has retained much of its charm as well as an impressive variety of events, shopping, and culture to attract visitors of any age. While the town is only a short drive away from St. Louis, it is far away from the big city. You'll soon fall in love with a town where you can watch bald eagles soar each winter, catch the falling leaves of the scenic byway, and enjoy family activities around the Mississippi River.
Can’t Miss Eagle Days
Despite the chilly weather, January is one of the best times to visit a Clarksville timeshare. The annual Eagle Days festival honors the thousands of bald eagles who call this area their winter home. Lock and Dam #24 keeps the river water open and flowing year-round so the birds can continue to fish after other waters have been frozen. During Eagle Days, the Apple Shed Theater hosts live eagle shows, kids can participate in eagle-themed activities, and visitors and locals alike peer through the viewing lenses at River Front City Park for a better look at the eagles as they roost, fish and fly around the town. If you love eagle-themed shirts, pictures, and other souvenirs, then this is the time to visit your Clarksville timeshare.
Another popular time to visit is during the October Applefest. Apples played a key role in the early days of Clarksville and the town was even called Appleville by the riverboat sailors who shipped the town's abundant apple crop up and down the Mississippi River. Like during Eagle Days, Applefest is a time of family-friendly shows and exhibits, interesting historical facts, and local shopping for unique gifts not found anywhere else.
Summer is the most consistently busy season in Clarksville. When you visit your Clarksville timeshare from June through August you can enjoy long scenic bike rides along the Mississippi River, stroll through the revamped Main Street which is now on the National Register of Historic Places, and go bird-watching in the Ted Shanks Conservation Area, which has thousands of acres of wetlands and provides a home for native and migratory birds.
Spring tends to be the slowest season in the town but there is a long shoulder season as visitors come in the fall to see the changing colors of the leaves, pick apples, and enjoy the crisp weather for their favorite outdoor activities. And of course, the eagles are the biggest draw during the winter, and most of the outdoor events at Eagle Days include outdoor bonfires to keep visitors warm while they admire the Bald Eagles.
So if you are looking for a pleasant and relaxing getaway along the Mid-Mississippi region, Clarksville is the place to be.
