Downtown Franklin's got a nice variety of shops and restaurants. Everything from used bookstores to antiques to Irish pubs and Starbucks. You could easily spend half a day or more here and see lots of cool stuff.

Downtown Franklin is so cute! Our family enjoyed walking around looking in the shops. Very unique gift and clothing stores as well as a candy store and several restaurants. Good option to kill a little time and get some fresh air.
