...than downtown Franklin. Devote a morning to wander the shops but be sure to leave room for lunch. Lots of quaint little restaurants to choose from. Stop and pick one. You can't go wrong. Or, devote an evening for dinner and a movie. The Franklin Theater is at the center of town. Explore the city, it is a guarantee that you will leave loving the life and culture of Franklin.

There is an old school movie Theatre that was playing vintage movies on the big screen. There are lots of fun shops and a number of really good restaurants. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.

You will enjoy the charm of this southern historical downtown area. Be sure to check out the history and the Franklin Theater.

Great downtown shoppes, lovely place to visit. Not all cities have been able to keep their downtown going but Franklin is blessed with a wonderful, hopping downtown.

Historic downtown Franklin has much to offer, from strolling along the sidewalks to quality shopping and a multitude of eateries from which to choose. We were there shortly before Christmas and the town was decked out in holiday cheer. There is so much to see in Franklin, with the battle sites and plantations, but be sure to save a couple of hours to spend in downtown.
