Nice job of keeping the small town atmosphere. The theater, the shops, and local activities remind you of a simpler time.

Downtown Franklin is a great family place. It is very clean and has friendly people. There are several restaurants to choose from and lots of shopping at unique as well as chain stores. Go to the FranklinTheatre. They have movies as well as plays.

Nice, historic town full of little shops and restaurants. I enjoy strolling down the streets but rarely ever shop at any of the stores because none of them are appealing to me. The area has become more crowded recently and can be pretty packed on weekends.

Franklin stands as a monument to carefully planned revitalization. Next time you plan to go mall hopping or big box shopping, trade that for a day downtown in Historic Franklin, TN!

Best Main Street! Great shops, clean and safe with some good restaurants. Like going back in time and they have great events for all to enjoy.
