Walking around the Franklin area is entertaining. Parking can be a challenge, however, it's worth it. Many shops and restaurants on the blocks.

I have lived in Franklin for three years and love coming downtown to stroll the Main Street or grab a bite to eat. There are so many fun street festivals held such as A Dickens of a Christmas.

Sundays a lot of the stores are closed, but there's a little for everyone to enjoy in Downtown Franklin. Restaurants, shopping, movies, antiques.

Downtown Franklin has got to be one of the most welcoming and fun for the family downtown areas in the country. It's well laid out and safe for walking, variety of shops, restaurants and clean entertainment and very safe.

Cute shops with everything imaginable from designer clothes to antiques. Great food and ice cream when you get tired of walking and looking in store fronts. Lots of history too right on the square and everywhere you look.
